The Liberator by Alex Kershaw
General Felix Sparks:
"They lay beneath perfect rows of white graves that lined lush green lawns. He knew where they were buried. He had their names."
"Often he had questioned what kept his men going. The American Army was on the attack all the time in Europe. He had kept thinking, Why do they go? It was hard to explain why his men had not hesitated. Many times he had said: 'Let's go!' Every time they had gone."
"The graves of his men stretched across Europe, over two thousand miles. They had died in Sicily, in France, at the dark heart of Nazi Germany."
"...General Felix Sparks wandered through towns he had set free, across battlefields and through several graveyards. The white crosses were silent. The men who had died for him could not be resurrected."
