Only 3 weeks until the WWII book about my dad’s heroism and exploits releases

Over 15 years in the research and writing, the WWII book about my father and his exploits, “At First Light: A True World War II Story of a Hero, His Bravery, and an Amazing Horse,” is at the printer. The book will be released on April 19 but is gathering more and more amazing endorsements.

I’m so blessed to have nearly 40 amazing endorsements for “At First Light.” Here are a few more of the favorites that I hope will pique your interest:

“It would be so easy for a tale with so much true horror and heartbreak to be a heavy, depressing experience, and to leave the reader saddened. What Walt Larimore has managed to achieve is a story that doesn’t shy away from the true facts of war but manages to deliver them in such a way that the result is ultimately hopeful, uplifting, and serves as a reminder that soldiers are ultimately people, not numbers. I found myself hurrying onward through the pages whenever Phil was injured, sighing deeply at his setbacks, and tearing up with joy at the end.” 

—Mal Windsor, copyeditor of At First Light

“A captivating and compelling story of a true American hero. As the son of a World War II veteran, At First Light made me reflect on the great dedication and sacrifice embodied in Phil Larimore, who fought to protect everything that is great about America. His courage and leadership in the face of intense combat shows what is deep in the heart of every soldier. Thanks, Walt Larimore, for sharing your amazing father with us!”

Lt. General R.L. VanAntwerp, U.S. Army (Ret) three-star general and former Chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

At First Light is an astonishing story. As a former infantry officer, I appreciate the grit, ingenuity, and tenacity of the front-line U.S. Army Lieutenants in World War II. Phil Larimore, as an eighteen-year-old platoon leader and company commander on the front lines, demonstrated remarkable leadership while facing horrifying odds of his own mortality and that of his soldiers. But Phil’s story doesn’t end there, as what he accomplished after the war is even more compelling. At First Light is a superb story of courage, honor, and sacrifice.”

—Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen, U.S. Army (Ret.) three-star general, formerly the 29th President of the University of South Carolina and the 59th Superintendent of West Point

“All wars are full of tragedies, and World War II was no exception. The list of those maimed and killed, and whose lives were interrupted through no fault of their own, was in the millions. Such a magnitude of despair can easily overshadow the good in humans. Phil Larimore made the world a better place, and his son Walt has made World War II literature better as well with his labor of love, At First Light.”

Col. French L. MacLean, U.S. Army (Ret.) and author of Custer’s Best and The Fifth Field
