Jack Sacco’s telling of his father’s World War II service is a story replete with honor and horror. In “Where the Birds Never Sing,” Sacco details Joe Sacco’s time with the 92nd Signal Battalion and General George Patton’s Third Army as Allied forces pushed through France and Germany. But it was Joe’s arrival at Dachau in 1945 that left an indelible mark on both father and son.
