I collect information and write about local servicemen who died in World War II. That's how I came across this book, just typed in the name of our town and the book came up as a reference. Just the title was intriguing. Little did I know I was going to discover what may be the best book concerning WW II that I've read, and we're talking hundreds! Bill Warnock is an excellent writer. I found myself feeling, smelling and hearing the sounds of the Belgium forests as the group went about their searches. He was able to introduce us to these men who had been lost, put a face on them if you will, the way I've tried to do with our local boys over the years so that the youngsters of today will see them as real people. His passion and devotion to "the cause" as well as the other men involved in this endeavor is overwhelming. I also was fascinated by the forensic information and about how the Henri-Chappelle cemetery was built and maintained . . . I had no idea how they kept the crosses so straight! I've ordered two more of the books for others, one for a friend and another for my son who's a history teacher. I wish every high school student in the U.S. was required to read this book, to see these fallen soldiers as like themselves but also understand that sometimes our government does do something right. I was pleased at the expense and respect that was expended even 60 years after the fact.

When I first started reading The Dead Of Winter I thought it would be another one of those books where there would be more boring facts and figures than personal, intimate, and emotional first hand accounts of infantrymen doing all they could do to survive the first few days of The Battle Of The Bulge. Bill Warnock, has done an outstanding job of resurrecting the fate of several infantrymen of the 99th Infantry who were killed and left behind after their positions in Belgium were overrun by the German jauggernaut of 16 December 1944. I became intimately attached to David Read, Mike Larson, Ewing Fidler, 2nd Lt Holloway, Sgt Frederick Zimmerman, and many of the others who died and were left behind to be buried in lonesome graves on the battlefield of Belgium and the Ardennes Forest. Thanks to the perserverance, tanacity, and cooperation of Carl Seel, Mr. Speider, Hans Honen, Ed Whithead, Mr. Swanson, and many others, these lost souls were found and brought home to their families, or given descent burials alongside their comrades who fought and died on the battlefields of World War II. Mr. Seel, and Mr. Speider who initially started this episode are the real heroes here too, because, as honest, caring, and loving men who cared about the American soldiers who liberated their country from the Nazi's, they took it upon themselves to try to locate, identify, and bring attention to these men who had died so gallently, but had to be left behind in the heat of battle. This is an awesome book, very well written, exactingly documented and recorded with all the facts of the men who were killed in action, and is well worth reading. I strongly urge everyone who loves freedom, history, and this great country to read this book. The men who were lost back in 1944, and the families they left behind, is a poignant reminder of just how fragile and important freedom is.

THE DEAD OF WINTER actually brings the past--rather the dead--to life. fascinating engaging narrative of one man's almost accidental involvement with bringing home America's MIA WW2 ETO dead. it primarily focuses on 99th INFANTRY DIVISION KIAs, in a certain sector (their tactical area of responsibility during WW2) missing over a half a century only to be found by a team of european metal-detecting relic hunters. the author's involvement only deepens as the years unfold and the bodies begin to surface. besides the US gov't official forensic agencies and governing administrative units of military jurisdiction over found American soldiers (on foreign grounds)....the appealing aspect is the 99th INF DIV VETERAN's association membership assisting the effort to identify and bring to final peace their missing comrades. the author also skillfully fleshes out each uncovered GI's pre-war life, his service and death in combat during THE BATTLE OF THE BUGLE....and the poignant often difficult task (due to the passing of time) of notifying the NEXT-OF-KIN. the complex uncertainty, the historical research minutely and doggedly conducted, WW2 fellow veterans questioned-interviewed and the multiple process detailing the absolute identification of each body makes for a true life mystery. as a military ID tag collector...i took a very special interest in how a GI's dogtags did or didn't fulfilled their ultimate purpose of personal identification. no longer will i be able to gaze at a dug-up relic tag or KIA tag without pondering the deeper subterranean significance of what i'm holding. a book definitely reading.

I bought this book to read about the wonderful job the author and his friends of the "giving of time" to find some of the missing GIs that died in Europe. The stories of those missing men and learning who they were and how their lives ended, giving a good idea of just how ugly and violent war can be.
