Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

From Hankow to Honolulu, from the front lines of World War II to some of the most prestigious offices in publishing, Joseph Littell's memoir charts a self-reflective journey through uncommon terrains. Honest and spirited, it reveals at once a portrait of a singular family and a firsthand chronicle of one of the most devastating battles in history. A "mish kid," son of an Episcopal missionary bishop, the young Littell traveled with his parents and siblings from China to Hawaii in the 1930s. But his cosseted life came to an abrupt end when, after his time away at boarding school, he was inducted into the 106th Division of the U.S. Army. Unsuspecting and largely untrained, his division was calamitously poised for its capitulation to Hitler's armies in the Battle of the Bulge. In vivid detail, Littell recounts his regiment's grueling captivity, his serendipitous escape, and the fateful blunder that landed him and two comrades in Buchenwald. In 1945, returning from the horrors of war, he de

From Publishers Weekly:

This extraordinarily eventful memoir includes the author's recollections of his early years in China as a member of a large missionary family, his adventures as an exchange student in Hitler's Germany, his capture during the Battle of the Bulge and his escape from a POW camp, recapture and liberation by Patton's Third Army. After the war Littell entered the world of publishing and eventually co-founded McDougal, Littell & Company, a textbook publisher that began operation in 1969 with four employees in a tiny office in Evanston, Ill., and went on to become a top educational publisher. The memoir is wide-ranging and candid: Littell recounts his sexual exploitation by older boys while a choirboy in his father's church, the effect of his sister's suicide on the family, his combat experiences as a GI in a poorly trained outfit, his tempestuous first marriage and his reconciliation with his father, an Episcopal bishop, after a 20-year estrangement. Business-oriented readers will find especially rewarding his account of McDougal, Littell's success despite serious setbacks. Photos.
