Critique: “Left for Dead at Nijmegen: The True Story of an American Paratrooper in World War II” is an extraordinary and simply riveting memoir that will prove to be an immediate and enduringly valued addition to both community and academic library World War II Military History & Biography collections.”
The Palo Alto City Library; WW University Library in Munster, Germany; The King’s University Library in Edmonton, Alberta; The Culver-Union Township Public Library; The University of Alberta Library; and The Calgary Public Library are the latest libraries to add Left for Dead at Nijmegen to their collections. Thank you!
“Very Riveting” Herbert Bauernebel, American Correspondent for the German periodicals BILD and amerikaREPORT.
“Marcus, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It’s perhaps one of the best memoirs I’ve read.” Angus Wallace, WW II Podcast, United Kingdom.
“The writing is direct, simple, and honest, relaying the same feeling that you get from the main character. Left for Dead in Nijmegen, written by Marcus A Nannini and published by Casemate, a resounding recommendation to readers of historical novels.” … “Nannini dutifully constructs images and characteristics of the POW camps that his subject was forced into that were previously unknown. This work, therefore, is as important to historical study of the period as it is a riveting and fascinating tale.” Literary Titan, July 12, 2019. https://literarytitan.com/2019/07/12/left-for-dead-at-nijmegen/
