Where the Birds Never Sing:

The True Story of the 92nd Signal Battalion and the Liberation of Dachau

By Jack Sacco ’78 (Regan).


The author offers the story of his soldier father, Joe Sacco, who was drafted in 1941 at age 18 and learned firsthand the horrible realities of war when his unit landed on the beaches of Normandy. The World War II chronicle, which has won praise for its “compelling recreation of the G.I. experience,” also contains black-and-white photographs from battalion members’ personal collections.

“Just as our cause was worth fighting for, so too are our stories worth remembering,” writes Senator Bob Dole in his foreword.
