A story of survival, hunger and reflection from a teenaged prisoner of war inside Germany near the end of WWII. From capture at the Battle of The Bulge to the final escape from his German guards, the author allows us a glimpse into the despair and agony of being a prisoner in a foreign land.

Herb Sheaner was a regional supervisor with Dunlop Tire and Rubber Corporation before establishing the Sheaner Insurance Agency in 1952. Herb also coached high school track & field twenty-one years with his teams winning seven State Meet Championships. He has been married to Gloria fifty-three years and they have three children. During the war he was a private first class in Company G, 422nd Regiment of the 106th Infantry Division. After receiving ASTP training at University of Alabama he joined the 106th at Camp Atterbury in Indiana where he earned “Expert” rifleman honors and was designated Co. G Sniper and Regimental Scout. Having missed transfer as a replacement into other divisions he and the rest of the 106th found themselves placed on the front lines inside Germany on the eve of the Battle of the Bulge. Fifty years later he recalls his experience.
