As an anti-tankgunner during WW II, Larry Breeze, Ph.D. survived heavy fighting during the invasion of Nazi Germany and went on to teach generations of college students about European History at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. Dr. Breeze talked with producers Jak Tichenor and Roger Suski about the hard-fought battle of the Hurtgen Forest and the Allied push into the German homeland. By the end of the war, he was the only original member left in his company that shipped out for Europe in 1944. In 2009, Dr. Breeze recounted his World War Two experiences in a new book: From Farm to Front:An Innocent Goes to War. The book is available from the Southeast Missouri State University Press.
