 Product Description

“Sempre Avanti: Always Forward” is the first historically correct *novel* about the WWII ski troopers who, despite multiple trials and setbacks, evolved into the US Army’s elite 10th Mountain Division ~ and follows their triumphant campaign as they push the German Army out of Italy.

Skiing was Jack Franklin’s passion, so when the Army came recruiting for the newly formed Ski Troopers he was all in. Training at high altitudes in the Rocky Mountains at Camp Hale in Colorado was brutal, but the 14,000 soldiers who trained there became an elite corps, the 10th Mountain Division, ready and eager to take on Hitler in the Italian Alps.

Along the way, Jack formed a long-distance relationship with the woman who recruited him ~ but her East Coast socialite background was as opposite his West Coast blue-collar life as it could possibly be. With him facing battle against Nazi Germans in the Alps, and her going overseas with the Red Cross, there was nothing for them to do but hope and pray they would both survive.

There’s only one way to fight a war: sempre avanti ~ always forward.

2017, 350 pages, paperback
