Diamond In The Rough: A memoir Of The 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment
“Diamond in the Rough” is the autobiography of James Costa, a young immigrant from southern Italy who survives on poverty, war, amputation, corporate corruption and the lure of the Mafia in his journey to achieving the “American Dream”. It is a gritty– sometimes graphic and brutal– story that includes gentleness, kindness, and a deep love of family where perseverance and integrity are the shepherds to his success.
