June 1944. The Allies deliver a staggering blow to Hitler's Atlantic fortress, leaving the beaches of Normandy strewn with corpses. The Germans have only one chance to stop the immense invasion - by bottling up the Americans on the Cotentin Peninsula. Caught up in the battles are two very different men, each with his own demons to fight. Joe Amos Biggs is a black driver in the unheralded convoy of trucks that serves as a precious lifeline to the front. Joe Amos finds himself propelled into battle among those who don't see him as an equal - but will need him to be a hero. A chaplain in the demoralized 90th Infantry, Rabbi Ben Kahn is a veteran of the first great war and old enough to be the father of the GIs he tends. Searching for the truth about his own son, missing in action, Kahn finds himself duelling with God, wading into combat without a gun, and becoming a leader among men in need of someone - anyone - to follow. The fates of these men will collide, hurtling toward an uncommon destiny in which people commit deeds they can neither foresee nor explain. From the screams of German .8 8 cannons to the last whispers of dying young soldiers, Robbins captures war in all its awful fullness and leaves us with a memorable vision of humanity in the face of inhumanity itself.
