One Man's War
The WWII Saga of Tommy LaMore
By Tommy LaMore & Dan Baker
Narrated by Patrick Lawlor / 9 hours 32 minutes
Escaping certain death-not once but several times-lies at the core of this riveting, real-life story of an American soldier during World War II. He tells what it was like to be among the first airmen in the B-17s, to prepare oneself for long missions over enemy territory. He tells of the relationships formed, not only with fellow crewmen but also with French Resistance fighters, with Polish prisoners, with a young and pretty survivor of a women's camp, and, surprisingly, with a bigger-than-life Russian officer with a heart set on revenge. There are fascinating descriptions of the bloodthirsty Mongols on horseback who accompanied the Russians and who struck fear into the hearts of even the most hardened German SS men. Balancing the tales of despair and loneliness are images of a girl with an orange on a train, an intuitively companionable little dog, and brilliant scenes of Paris overflowing with flowers, food, love, and exuberance in the first weeks after the war. The listener ends up thinking it would have been a pleasure to have known this man, Tommy LaMore, and humbly certain that the West's freedom was assured by the sacrifices of men like him. One Man's War vividly details this man's experiences in war-ravaged Europe, from the horrific to the romantic and beyond.
