Recollections of World War II: A Former Lieutenant’s Stories of Battles and Trials
Former soldier shares his memories of the harrowing events of WWII.
“Despite the many years that have passed, Jacobs’ recollection of the events in the war is vivid and detailed.”
Sixty-something years later, former private Earle W. Jacobs reveals the events that led him to Utah Beach in the midst of an invasion. Yes, They Do—“Gang Aft Agley!” is an account of Jacobs’s years of service in the Second World War.
From October 1941 to January 1946, author Jacobs served in the war between the Allied and Axis forces. Yes, They Do retells the circumstances of the Allied invasion in Normandy, where Jacobs and his comrade were involved.
Jane Baratta of Shedd, Oregon, talks about the memoir, “Despite the many years that have passed, Jacobs’ recollection of the events in the war is vivid and detailed.”
Jacobs gives us here a first-hand account of one young man’s experience during the first part of the WWII, from Pearl Harbor Day to the invasion of Normandy. He points out here, as did the famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns in his often quoted poem, “To A Mouse”, that the best laid plans of mice and men often do not turn out as originally planned.
