Lt. Allen G. Wilson served as a Forward Observer with Cannon Company, 362nd Infantry Regiment, 91st Infantry Division in Italy during WWII. As such, his eyes witnessed some of the most bitter fought Infantry combat that we experienced in the war against a difficult and determined enemy. His book, "Answering the Call" addresses those days.
