Home Front to BattlefrontHome Front to Battlefront

An Ohio Teenager in World War II

Frank Lavin


Book published by Ohio University Press


Foreword by Henry Kissinger.

Carl Lavin was a high school senior when Pearl Harbor was attacked. The Canton, Ohio, native enlisted when he turned eighteen, a decision that would take him with the US Army from training across the United States and Britain to combat with the 84th Infantry Division in the Battle of the Bulge. Home Front to Battlefront is the tale of a foot soldier who finds himself thrust into a world where he and his unit grapple with the horrors of combat, the idiocies of bureaucracy, and the oddities of life back home—all in the same day. The book is based on Carl's personal letters, his recollections, and those of the people he served beside, official military history, private papers, and more.

Frank Lavin is the son of Carl Lavin. Frank has served as a US ambassador, White House aide, banker, and trade negotiator.

REVIEWS:

“If you like American history, or military history, or just a good narrative yarn, do check out Home Front to Battlefront.
