These soldiers answered President Roosevelts call to battle by leaving their homes and loved ones in the cities of America and the farmlands of the Midwest. They were young, well-trained, courageous soldiers who fought their way from Utah Beach to the Elbe River. In the process, these combat engineers would build hundreds of bridges under fire, lay thousands of land mines, liberate Aachen, fight at the Remagen Bridge, discover the Nazi baby factories in the Harz Mountains, survive the onslaught of the Ardennes and liberate the Dora-Mittlebau concentration camp shortly before the destruction of the Third Reich. In short, Cornfield Soldiers tells a fictionalized version of one of Americas most highly-decorated combat engineer units in WWII. This is the story of those Cornfield Soldiers.
