At the first light of dawn on D-Day, June 6, 1944, Bob Bearden and his comrades from the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment jumped into an inky sky above Normandy. Their mission: to defend the west bank of the Merderet River from the German counterattack. Bearden's time in combat proved short-lived however, as he was captured on D+2, June 8. This was only the beginning of a new war for his survival within several German prisoner of war camps, his so-called "liberation" by Russian tank crews, who were more inclined to exact their revenge at the expense of of the Germans than to protect the Allied prisoners, and the perilous journey that followed, mainly on foot, along the sandy, snow-covered roads of Germany and Poland, on the road to Moscow and, finally, back to Dallas, Texas. Road to D-Day and Home is a gripping story told by an eyewitness to one of the most studied campaigns in history
