From the back cover: "Lieutenant Miller led the first U. S. Army tank platoon over hte Rhine River at the legendary Remagen Bridge in March 1945. His story of that phenomenal episode in American military history makes riveting reading. No one interested in World War II history can afford to miss it." From SGM Lauren Larson's review on the website of the U. S. Army Historical Foundation: "A Tanker's View of World War II tells the story of World War II from the perspective of 1LT Miller, Platoon Leader of 3d Platoon, A Company, 14th Tank Battalion, 9th Armored Division. His story begins with his repeated efforts to leave his essential job and join the Army. His detailed description of life during basic training, Armored Force Training School, and Officer Candidate School is insightful and full of humorous anecdotes. He continues the narrative by describing the pre-combat training of the 9th Armored Division at Fort Riley, Kansas, Camp Ibis, California, and Camp Polk, Louisiana. In combat, his platoon fought in the Battle of the Bulge, the Remagen Bridgehead, across Germany to the ElbeRiver, and later through Bavaria. A Tankers View of World War II delivers a down-to-earth account of a tanker's training and combat experience in World War II. "; 144 pages; Signed by Author.
