Bob Stubenrauch is sadly not with us to see Cat Thirteen published. This brave, gentle and patriotic man passed away in 1998. His legacy will live forever. Bob was there, in some of the biggest battles of World War II as a combat photographer in the 6th US Infantry Brigade. He rarely left the front line and was decorated for bravery. CAT13...Combat Assignment Team 13 is the fictional memoir of a corporal as he fights and photographs his way through the killing fields. This book is a startling insight to the hardship, bravery, tragedy and ultimate victory that hundreds of thousands of GI's faced during the years of fighting to free Europe. Every word of every page is a testimony to the endless sacrifice of young men and women in the brutal advance following the invasion of Fortress Europe. The reader is thrown into the daily hell and the humanity of a WWII GI. This is the story of our fathers, our uncles, and our mothers. It is for the reader to decide if it will be the story of our children. War is War, no matter when it is fought, the experiences are the same.
