This is the story of one soldier's last fight at the Belgium town of Noville, an outpost of Bastogne. Orders were to hold this crossroads at any cost until the defenses of Bastogne could be strengthened. This book is an infantryman's memory of this terrible battle, including his close calls with death and the story of how he and his partner destroyed a Tiger tank from just a few feet away. It is a bloody tale of a bloody fight. Some of that blood came form PFC Addor when he was hit twice in just a couple of minutes.

Mr. Addor describes his struggle to stay alive while all alone on the foggy battle field, including how he invented a new type of tournequet to keep from bleeding to death, and his unbelievable rescue and escape from surrounded Bastogne. The book also tells of his Army medical treatment and rehabilitation, which included extensive therapy to help him learn to walk on an artifical leg. Mr. Addor also relates several other combat experiences against the Germans during World War II.

Praise for Noville Outpost to Bastogne

Your book Noville Outpost to Bastogne is a gem and was a joy to read. Your recall of events was amazing in the depiction of the episodes during your period with the 20th Armored Infantry Battalion. World War II veterans and students of that great period in our history would all benefit from a reading of your story. The detailed descriptions of your injury and the recuperative procedures reveal an inner courage and will serve as a model for other injured GIs, whatever the war, to emulate. As a former high school colleague from the good old days, I admire you for putting your story together and wish you all the best with book sales. Malcolm Lawrence, WWII Veteran, 8th Air Force, 94th Bomb Group

We have a talented author among us. I purchased a book entitled Noville Outpost to Bastogne: My Last Battle, at our club picnic and have had difficulty putting it down as soon as I started reading it. It is written by our own, long-term member, Don Addor. He can be very proud of his fine work. It is about his many battles including the Battle of the Bulge, with the 20th Armored Infantry Battalion, 10th Division, General Patton's Third Army. The book is well written, extremely interesting and well worth the $20.00 purchase price. I sincerely hope each of you will buy this outstanding book for an added bonus to your personal library. Thanks Don for this very rewarding personal pleasure of reading your fine book. I hope you enjoyed writing it as much as I enjoyed reading it.
