That's The Way The Ball Bounces is a mmoir of a teenage soldier's somewhat unusual service as a Military Policemen in the Army Air Force during WWII. After basic training in Miami Beach, the MP Company was stationed for over two years at the headquarters of a Replacement Depot in the English Midlands. The company was billeted in a dormitory-like barrack with two men per room. After the war, what remained of the company spent two months in Germany. This is both a personal and a social history of the then Army life and Military Police duties.
