About this author

R. M. Byrd lives in North Carolina with his wife and two cats, as well as deer, hummingbirds and, appropriately, the odd nuthatch. He has been writing since before he can reliably recall. Though he has great trouble writing short, his short fiction has appeared in the literary journal The Iconoclast, the Best Raleigh Reading collection of The Main Street Rag and in Offshoots, the literary collection of the Geneva Writers’ Group of Geneva, Switzerland.

R.M. Byrd is on page 169 of 320 of Foot Soldier: thus far this is a great book. He tells the story of not only his history of getting into the army but of the Battle of the Bulge from the foot soldier's point of view rather than the general's. Can't put it down.

"As someone from Appalachia who's into DIY stuff, I'm surprised it took me this long to read this book. (Especially since my dad has all of them sitting on his bookshelves.) I loved it, of course. It is in significant part a practical book covering..." Read more of this review »

This is an interesting book (the whose series is so) for anyone interested in how things were done before telephones (let alone mobiles), electronics and in some places, even cars. It is a great injustice to think that life was easier because it was ...more
