Shifty's War
By Marcus Brotherton

A tale of heroism and adventure - a memoir about Sergeant Darrell "Shifty" Powers, a highly respected Band of Brothers soldier.

When he was a boy growing up in the remote mining town of Clinchco, Virginia, Shifty Powers's goal was to become the best rifle shot he could be. His father trained him to listen to the woods, to "see" without his eyes. Little did Shifty know his finely-tuned skills would one day save his life-and the lives of many of his friends.

Shifty's War is a tale of a soldier's blood-filled days fighting his way from the shores of France to the heartland of Germany, and the epic story of how one man's abilities as a sharpshooter, along with an engagingly unassuming personality, propelled him to a life greater than he could have ever imagined.

“Marcus has completely captured the essence of my father in this book. We are truly in awe of his genius. Throughout this book, you'll get to know ‘Shifty’ as a quiet, humble man who loved his family above anything else, served his country with pride, and did not seek the limelight. It sought him—much to his amazement.” — Margo (Powers) Johnson, Shifty’s daughter
