Sinopsis:

What is it that wins wars? Is it the amount or gore,the size of the weapons,the death toll...or is it the honor of the men who fought there,defending a code of honor unknown to ordinary man....

With wit and grace,Ralph T. Johnson facetiously reminds us of the courage that a battle asks of its warriors in his light hearted rendition of World War II,"Which Way Did They Go." As a WWII veteran,Johnson knows first-hand the spirit crushing mentality of combat and that moments of folly that keep our soldiers alive.

In war, Johnson realized that it is these moments of humor,of sarcasm,of pure madness that allow soldiers to maintain their sanity. Thus,"Which Way Did They Go" focuses on the ridiculous side of World War II,giving its readers a personal tour through the minds and hearts of warriors on the brink of battle. For it is their spirit,their strength or will,that bores triumph of morbib chaos.

Thus, war is not composed solely of blood and gore-but of the men and women who fight the battle,tapping into whatever resources necessary to survive. For it is the heart os the soldier that sets him free from the chains of the in herent resistance.

From the Inside Flap:

Her bike hits a stone or somethingand skitters away from the jeep....It's really a runaway now as her bike bounces down the roadside bank and bucks her off at the bottom. With her skirt flying, she goes strudel over bagels through the high field grass. "Whee," yelps Mouse,"she ain't got no pants on!"

"Which Way Did They Go?" is not your typical World War II memoir. Author R.T. Johnson has taken a lighthearted approach to this serious subject matter and leaves the blood and gore to other books.

This compilation of short stories and anecdotes is more "humor in uniform," based on fact with a sprinkle of fiction.

Johnson's witty writing draws the reader into the comical tales of adventures he and his war buddies endured while overseas. "Which Way Did They Go?" offers up the "sunny side" of surviving in a tumultuous time.
