Home Front to Battlefront · An Ohio Teenager in World War II
By Frank Lavin · Foreword by Henry Kissinger

Carl Lavin was a high school senior in Canton, Ohio, when Pearl Harbor was attacked. The Canton, Ohio, native was eighteen when he enlisted, a decision that would take him with the US Army from training across the United States and Britain to combat with the 84th Infantry Division in the Battle of the Bulge.
