Sinopsis:

A chilling firsthand account of the 94th Infantry Division's campaign to break through the Siegfried line at the end of World War II describes the author's experiences as an eighteen-year-old rifleman on the front lines of the war, capturing the horror, heroism, and harsh realities of life and death on the battlefield.

From the Inside Flap:

An absolutely harrowing first-person account of the 94th Infantry Division's bold campaign to break through Hitler's "impregnable" Siegfried line at the end of World War II
Eighteen-year-old William Foley was afraid the war would be over before he got there, but the rifleman was sent straight to the front lines, arriving January 25, 1945-just in time to join the 94th Infantry Division poised at Hitler's legendary West Wall. By the time Foley finally managed to grab a few hours sleep three nights later, he'd already fought in a bloody attack that left sixty percent of his battalion dead or wounded. That was just the beginning of one of the toughest, bloodiest challenges the 94th would ever face: breaking through the Siegfried Line. Now, in "Visions from a Foxhole, Foley recaptures that desperate, nerve-shattering struggle in all its horror and heroism.
