The story is told in my memoir, DEAR CAPTAIN, ET AL.: the Agonies and the Ecstasies of War and Memory." (Xlibris 2000). There is a lot of information about him in that book. Suggest you read it first and then pose whatever questions you may have. He was an excellent officer that I greatly admired.
Also available at most internet booksellers.
This board is dedicated to the memory of CAPTAIN LEONARD REED CARPENTER, Company Commander, November 19, 1944 - March 27, 1945.
