Former Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole talked about his book One Soldier’s Story: A Memoir, published by HarperCollins. The book was about his experience joining the Army in 1940's, and becoming a platoon leader at the age of 21. He was stationed with the 10th Mountain Division and was part of an attack on the Nazi army in the Alps of Northern Italy. During the battle he was hit in the upper back by enemy fire, which damaged his spinal cord. He is interviewed on his wartime experience, and his rehabilitation by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author, Rick Atkinson.
