Knight (A Tank Destroyer Story) Paperback
by Commander US
Navy Retired Victor "Tory" Failmezger (Author) , US Army Retired LTC Tim
to go to the
|This book is the story of a young
Lieutenant, Thomas Peter Welch, in the 601st Tank Destroyer Battalion
during World War II. The story of the 601st TD BN is told in Tommy's
more than 150 letters from the front and the unpublished memoirs and
diaries of the men who were there. The book follows the Battalion from
stateside training to North Africa, the withdrawal at the Kasserine
Pass, and on to victory over Rommel at El Guetter. The Battalion was
part of the invasion of Italy at Salerno and crossed the Volturno on the
road to Cassino. Landing at Anzio, they became trapped on the beachhead
for four months until the breakout and the liberation of Rome. They were
first ashore for the "Forgotten D-Day" in Southern France and were there
for the resultant battles against winter and the SS in the Vosges
Mountains, and smashing the Colmar Pocket. At the end, they crossed the
Siegfried Line and raced across Germany to Hitler's Eagle Nest. "An
American Knight" contains period maps and hundreds of illustrations,
many from private collections and never before published. It is 480
pages, with hundreds of footnotes, 12 appendices and a twenty-plus page
bibliography. Signed copies of this special unabridged author's edition
are available from the author.
Infantry Division developed an outstanding reputation for aggressiveness
and combat effectiveness in World War II.
In its 10 campaigns in North Africa, the
Mediterranean Theater, and in Europe the Rock of the Marne spent 531
days in combat, incurred 25,977 casualties, had 41 Medal of Honor
recipients (the most of any division in WWII), and was decorated with
the highest unit awards by the United States (the Presidential Unit
Citation) and by France (the Croix-de-Guerre).
Combat units of World War II were comprised
It is the men of the 3rd
Infantry Division and its attached units who earned that outstanding
reputation, with their blood, their sweat, and their courage through
innumerable fights in all conditions of weather and terrain.
The most famous of those men are the division’s
Medal of Honor recipients – their stories were told in the press and
have been kept alive in books which are still sold today.
However, countless other brave men fought in
this war, many died with their heroism unseen and thus unremarked,
others received lesser awards for heroism which fellow soldiers would
know to respect but which do not carry the caché the Medal of Honor
does, while all who survived the war worked hard to establish a sense of
normalcy after the trauma they experienced.
Their stories also deserve to be told.
Tory Failmezger does this with his book on
his uncle, 1 LT Peter “Tommy” Welch.
Reading the chapters on his combat service Tommy
Welch fit right in in this aggressive combat division.
He was the kind of soldier that 3rd
Infantry Division Commander Major General John Wilson “Iron Mike”
O’Daniel wanted, the kind who would take the fight to the enemy, who
would accept risk in order to bring the war to an end more quickly.
It was kill or be killed, and Tommy Welch was
good at it and lucky.
Tory has brought his uncle back to life, using
his war time letters he paints a clear picture of a confident, maybe
even cocky, young American fighting man.
Tory also takes us back in time, with his
extensive use of period materials, to provide us a better understanding
of the Army of WWII, and the America of those times.
Almost 70 years have passed since the war ended,
very few of the Greatest Generation are still among us, and few younger
Americans have had the privilege of knowing a WWII veteran.
The America of the 1940s doesn’t exist anymore,
and it is difficult to put ourselves into the shoes of the men and women
who rose to the occasion to defeat Nazism in Europe and preserved
American freedom while aiding the Nations of Europe to regain their
Tommy’s post-war years show a restless man
who appears to have been unable to come to closure with the sudden end
to his part in the war.
He seems to have been a man who found himself
while mastering the challenges and the risks of combat.
After the intense combat he experienced it is
clear little in a peaceful world, in a tidy civilian existence, could
provide him the adrenaline rush he needed and only experienced in
In today’s America it is probable many young men
returning to civilian life after time in Iraq and/or Afghanistan face
the same challenge.
Tory is extremely fortunate to have spent
time with Tommy – what college kid would not love an uncle who would
show him the ropes in the necessary, if not always openly discussed,
social skills of young men?
And we are extremely fortunate that Tory has
chosen to share his deep affection for his uncle with us through this
lovingly written and well-researched book.
highly recommend this book to our members as it accurately pictures what
life was like in the tank destroyers in WWII.
|My book on Captain Michael J. Daly
of A Company, 15th Infantry Regiment, who received the Medal of
Honor for his actions on April 18, 1945, in Nuremberg will be
released on September 1. It is published by Texas A&M University
Press and is entitled A Cause Greater Than Self: The Journey of
Michael J. Daly, WWII Medal of Honor Recipient. It is available
at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com As you know, I had the
privilege of interviewing Mike Daly many times. He and I became good
friends and we spoke three or four times a week over the course of a
six year period. He was one of the best men I have ever known. In
eleven months of combat from Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944, to April
19, 1945 in Nuremberg where he was severely wounded, Mike's
gallantry resulted in two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star with "V" for
valor, three Silver Stars, the Medal of Honor and went from private
to captain and company commander. And all before reaching the age of
twenty-one! A Company became known as "Daly Company" in his honor. I
hope that you enjoy the book and that I do justice to Mike's memory.
Thank you for all of your help on this project.

|Making John a
A Nebraskan Goes to War [Paperback]
John Malloy Sr (Author)
The author, born in Nebraska in 1923 after struggling through the
depression years of the Desperate Thirties volunteered for military
service in 1942. I subsequently fought in the Ardennes, Rhineland, and
Central Europe campaigns and earned the Combat Infantry Badge and was
honored with the Bronze Star with the V for Valor emblem.
Publication Date: November 13, 2011
"Making John a Soldier A Nebraskan Goes to War" describes the life and
trials of some of the 16,000,000 Americans who fought freedom's battle
in World War II- the group Tom Brocaw dubbed " The Greatest Generation."
The book describes how World War II engulfed the author's life from
his enlistment in 1942 until his discharge three years later. It
includes highlights of life changing experiences the author encountered
as an infantry rookie training in California's desert in 1943 to the
role he later played helping crush Hitler's minions.
The book is
more than a history of one person or one infantry division. Rather it
describes key battle actions of Army units in both the Pacific and
European theaters, as well as pivotal Marine and Naval engagements in
the Pacific. It examines the titanic Russian and German struggles from
Germany's invasion of Russia in June 1941 to the Soviet's final conquest
of Berlin in 1945. Thirty maps depict settings where crucial battles
were fought in both the European and Pacific theaters.
often focuses on the individual warrior who fought alone against a
determined and brutal enemy. The book delineates strategy dictated by
the most senior command, guiding battle action of friend and foe alike.
"Making John A Soldier" provides a view of the uncelebrated sacrifices
and bravery of the ordinary American GI during World War II. It recounts
the heroic exploits of a special group-seven Nebraskans awarded the
Medal of Honor.
The exploits of the 3d Infantry Division are well
documented in this book . These include its part in the Torch invasion
in North Africa in November 1942,the invasion of Sicily, and the battle
at the Anzio Beachhead. There follows a review of the invasion of
Southern France, followed by the bloody fight in Colmar driving the last
Germans back across the Rhine River.
The book, however, is more
than a history of one person or one infantry division. It describes key
battle actions in both the Pacific and European theaters. It also
examines selected Russian and German battles from Germany’s invasion of
Russia in June 1941 to the Soviet’s conquest of Berlin in 1945. Thirty
maps depict settings where crucial battles were fought in both Europe
and the Pacific.
Many of the 3d infantry Division Veterans and
their children and grandchildren will enjoy learning more about the
exploits of the 3d Division in World War II while also learning how this
division's brave warriors overcame a determined and ruthless enemy.

"On July 11, 1943,
General Lucian Truscott received the Army’s second-highest
decoration, the Distinguished Service Cross, for valor in action in
Sicily. During his career he also received the Army Distinguished
Service Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Navy Distinguished Service
Medal, the Legion of Merit, and the Purple Heart. Truscott was one
of the most significant of all U.S. Army generals in World War II,
pioneering new combat training methods, including the famous
“Truscott Trot," and excelling as a combat commander, who turned the
3d Infantry Division into one of the finest divisions in the U.S.
Army. He was instrumental in winning many of the most important
battles of the war, participating in the invasions of North Africa,
Sicily, Anzio, and southern France. Both peers and 'dogfaces,' i.e.,
common soldiers, respected Truscott, and General Eisenhower ranked
him second only to George S. Patton Jr. as a field army commander.
"Yet no definitive
history of his life has been compiled. Wilson Heefner corrects that
with the first authoritative biography of this distinguished
American military leader. Heefner has undertaken impressive research
in primary sources—as well as interviews with family members and
former associates—to shed new light on this overlooked hero. He
presents Truscott as a soldier who was shaped by his upbringing,
civilian and military education, family life, friendships, and
evolving experiences as a commander both in and out of combat.

his roles in key operations. It also examines Truscott’s postwar
service as military governor of Bavaria, particularly his role in
improving living conditions for Jewish displaced persons, removing
Nazis from civil government, and assisting in the trials of German
war criminals. And it offers the first comprehensive examination of
his subsequent career in the Central Intelligence Agency, where he
served as senior CIA representative in West Germany during the early
days of the Cold War, and later as CIA Director Allen Dulles’s
deputy director for coordination in Washington.

forthright, fearless, and aggressive, both as a military officer and
in his personal life—a man who, at the dedication ceremony for the
Anzio–Nettuno American cemetery in 1945, turned away from the crowd
and faced the thousands of crosses stretching before him to address
those buried there. Heefner has written a definitive biography of a
great soldier and patriot."

A Kid from Pittsburgh by Marion Rosen
With Morris Rosen
I first conceived the
idea for a biography about my husband’s early years from age 13 to20
while touring Europe in 1994 for the 50th anniversary of D-Day. For
this journey, World War II veterans from the U.S. Army’s Third
Division traveled over the same paths they’d covered 50 years
earlier in 1944 while struggling to take back territory seized by
By witnessing the incredible obstacles our troops had to overcome
first-hand, I instinctively understood that these men had gone
through much more than the history books have reported. My husband,
Morris Rosen, usually chose to talk about only a few incidents that
were, at times, hilariously funny, but I wanted to delve deeper. I
talked to the veterans and chronicled their stories. I especially
wanted to know more about the almost-unbelievable events that still
caused my husband and the rest of the men to grow teary-eyed so many
As I learned the unadulterated story of the war from a private’s
perspective, I also came to understand the heartbreak of a mere boy
who’d run away from a wretched home life to go off to war at 17.
War is never an easy topic to grasp, but A KID FROM PITTSBURGH is
sensitive yet out-spoken. Rowdy, yet gentle. Brutal circumstances
are made comprehensible. War is interpreted by a kid who grew up
without even realizing it.
Comments about A KID FROM PITTSBURGH:

A KID FROM PITTSBURGH is a story that no Hollywood screenwriter

Takedown: The 3rd Infantry Division's Twenty-One
Day Assault on Baghdad (Hardcover)
by Jim Lacey (Author)
This is easily the most interesting account of the invasion of Iraq
yet written and it covers not only the American perspective on the
fighting, but also the Iraqi's viewpoint (based on interviews with
Iraqi generals). Virtually every other history I have read has
totally overlooks the contribution the 3rd Infantry Division made to
the fight and until now they were in danger of being the forgotten
piece of the war. This is a bit surprising since the 3rd ID did most
of the fighting on the march up - far surpassing the amount of
contact the Marines faced (though their performance was also
No matter what you may think of the right or wrong of our
involvement in Iraq or what has happened since the invasion, there
is no doubt that the actual assault from Kuwait to Baghdad was
brilliantly executed and deserves to be recorded as one of the
greatest military operations in American history. Takedown tell this
story in magnificent fashion and captures this often harrowing fight
in incredible detail. I walked away from it with a new respect for
the American soldier and our Army.... A great read that I recommend

The Fuhrer, the Obersalzberg And the American Occupation of
by Arthur H. Mitchell (Author)
Adolf Hitler owed his success to his remarkable
ability to capture the hearts of the German people. That ability was
largely due to his skill at creating a public persona, not only as a
man of determination and effectiveness, but as a visionary and
prophet. To develop the latter image he associated himself with the
Bavarian Alps, where his retreat in Obersalzberg became almost a
magical cave from which he was able, with a wave of his wand, to
manipulate public opinion. This work examines the political events
that took place in Obersalzberg from the 1920s until the U.S. Army
returned control of the area to the German government in 1995.
Concentrating primarily on the years during which Hitler was in
residence, it discusses the geography, history and climate of
Berchtesgaden (a town located in the Bavarian Alps and home to
Obersalzberg) as well as Hitler's original acquaintance with the
area. In a wider scope, however, the work focuses on the symbolism
of identity and public perception as it relates to the place,
setting and lifestyle of political figures. Such symbolism was
especially important for Hitler as he deliberately and ruthlessly
perfected his public image in his quest for control of the German
government. The closing chapter follows Berchtesgaden through its
military occupation after the Nazi defeat in 1945.

This is not a chronicle of a brave and heroic soldier who
rose several ranks to Captain or Colonel or Major, although he received a
simple PFC to T-5 promotion along the way with a bunch of ‘other ‘guys’.
This was an ordinary American boy, raised in a devout Catholic family by
parents with strict principles, who was caught up in the conditions of a
U.S. World War into which he was hurled as a teenager.
All at once, he was clad in khaki and sent here and there on the
European battlefields. He was taking orders alongside his Army comrades,
and serving his time as prescribed by U.S. Army guidelines. It is not a
profound look at the lofty pursuits of a hero, but the necessary obligations

primarily this volume reflects ‘Art’s’ personal ‘spin’ on this memorable
period in history - 2 Years - 2 Months and 29 Days with A Company, 86th
Chemical Mortar Battalion.
The 86th CMB was an integral part of the war across Europe. The
battalion's role with the 4.2. Mortar included being attached to a few dozen
INFANTRY Regiments and Divisions across Europe - through Normandy, Northern
France - Belgium “Battle of the Bulge - Hurtgen Forest,” points in Germany -
winding up in Czechoslovakia in 1945 leaving all this drama behind at Camp
Campbell Kentucky to return to civilian life on November 6, 1945. This work

The 6th Army Group in World War II (Hardcover)
by Harry Yeide (Author), Mark Stout (Author)
This is the story of the Allied forces--the
U.S. 6th Army Group and French 1st Army--that landed in southern France on
August 15th, 1944.
The book follows the action from the French beaches to the Vosges Mountains,
where the first Allied penetration along the entire Western front reached
the Rhine River. First to the Rhine covers the vicious fighting during the
German Nordwind counteroffensive in January 1945
and the French-American offensive to clear the Colmar Pocket. It then
pursues the forces of the Third Reich across the Rhine to their ultimate
Unlike the forces landing in Normandy, these American divisions were
hard-bitten veterans of the war in Italy, and, in the case of the 3d
Infantry Division, North Africa. The French units included many veterans of
the Italian campaign and comprised Frenchmen and Africans in almost equal
numbers. As the campaign went on, the French ranks were swelled by tens of
thousands of Free French Forces of the Interior, the famous maquis. The
German forces arrayed against the Allies included the famed 11th Panzer
Division, an Eastern front veteran known as the “Ghost Division,” which
would hit the Allied advance time and again only to slip away before it
could be pinned and destroyed.
This is the harrowing story First to the Rhine tells, from the strategic
plane-down through the corps, division, and regimental levels to the
personal experience of the men in combat, including the likes of Audie
Murphy, America’s most decorated infantryman of the war. The book features
little-known battles, including one at Montelimar, when an ad hoc American
armored command and the 36th Infantry Division came within a hair’s breadth
and several days of hard fighting of cutting off the entire German 19th
Army. This is the first popular work in
English to explore the French role in the fighting and the relationship
between the U.S. Army and the French forces fighting under American command.
"First to the Rhine draws heavily on official American and French
after-action reports, other contemporary combat records such as highly
detailed S-3 and G-3 journals, and interviews conducted by the Army with
soldiers shortly after the actions occurred. It also features personal
recollections written by key commanders in American, French, and German
ranks, as well as illustrations from official U.S. Army photographers and

The Adventures of Bruce Monkman
A sheltered, naive, and undereducated young man,
with few prospects and from a sleepy small town in southern
California, had eye opening experiences entering the U.S. Army at
the age of 20 in 1941. He served as a Battalion supply technician in
the 3rd Infantry Division through the war until the ripe old age of
24 in 1945.
This adventure took him from California across
the United States, to North Africa and into Europe, including the
Anzio landing. He wasn't on the front lines thus this is not a war
story of battles and generals although there are battles to recount
and Patton does make an appearance. This is the story of a regular
guy in a most irregular situation, whose tales clearly illustrate
the daily reality of wartime in World War Two.
Bruce Monkman lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife,
Nancy. Since retiring from the Union Pacific Railroad, he spends his
time gardening, visiting with friends, attending Army reunions, and
writing his memoirs.

Legendary Escape Artist and "Cooler King"
by William Ash, Brendan Foley
I'm a London-based author and spent the last few years
helping one of North America's greatest unsung heroes of WWII, William
Ash, put together his wartime autobiography UNDER THE WIRE, which has just
been published in USA and Canada.
Bill, who just celebrated his 88th birthday, is probably the greatest
living US prisoner of war escape-artist of WWII. Born in Texas, he joined
the RCAF in 1940 and flew Spitfires until shot down in 1942. He then
became a serial escape artist, attempting 13 PoW-camp escapes - cutting
through the barbed wire, climbing over it, or tunneling under it before
finally escaping for good.
When the book came out in the UK a few months ago, it became an instant
best-seller, but somehow it has been almost completely ignored so far by
the media in North America. The only thing we can do to get Bill and his
book the recognition they deserve in the US and Canada is to turn to the
internet and people who care about WWII and the people who fought it for
us. So I would be very grateful if you would forward this note to anyone
who you think might like the book or help to spread the word that it is
out there, available at most good bookshops or online at Amazon.

A heroic and heretofore untold story of the men of the
87th Chemical Mortar Battalion and their 326 days of combat in Europe
during World War II.
I thought you might find this of interest. I have
written a book, that has recently been released, about my father's WW II
unit, the 87th Chemical Mortar Battalion. One of the Chapters, "The Final
Push" deals with the battalion's support of the 3rd ID in March of 1945 as
the division attacked toward the Siegfried line.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
"During the Iraq War, Capt. Jason Conroy commanded the tankers of Charlie
Company. Charlie Company was part of Task Force 1-64 of the 2nd Brigade
Combat Team, an element of the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Division. Equipped
with mammoth M1A1 Abrams tanks, Conroy's company was at the tip of the
U.S. Army's spear and one of the first elements into Baghdad." "Veteran
journalist Ron Martz was embedded in Charlie Company. Together, from the
unique perspective of an armor unit that was in nearly continuous combat
for four straight weeks, Conroy and coauthor Martz tell the unvarnished
story of what went right in Iraq - and what went deadly wrong. Conroy and
his soldiers were able to overcome supply shortages, intelligence
failures, and miserable weather to battle their way into downtown Baghdad,
a place where they had been told they would never have to fight. Heavy
Metal evaluates the Army's performance, including its use of tactics for
which the soldiers had never trained." Through the personal stories of the
young troopers of Charlie Company - who experienced a very different war
from what was seen back home on TV - Heavy Metal tells us much about the
qualities of today's American soldier, about twenty-first-century desert
and urban warfare, and about how the Army should prepare to fight. Not
simply a day-to-day memoir, it teaches vital lessons for future combat.
Christopher Freeman ( email@example.com
), A reviewer, February 14, 2005,
The Real Deal
My company commander, CPT Jason Conroy, and our embedded reporter Ron
Martz have put together an outstanding narrative of the Iraq War from the
point of view of the soldier. This is so much more interesting to me than
another book written by some general. If you want to know what it was
really like serving as a tanker in combat, read this book. I was one of
the Cobras during the war and this book really tells it like it happened.
A great read!

Cold Ground's Been My Bed : A Korean
by Daniel Wolfe (Outpost 52)
List Price: $22.95
Available at amazon.com
|Dan Wolfe was a Bronx, New York, teenager whose
passions were baseball, fooling around in school, and hanging out at the
candy store in the 1940s. Three years out of high school, he was drafted
and sent to Korea. Cold Ground’s Been My Bed is his no-holds-barred memoir
of the experience, from his physical to deployment into a frontline
Dan tells the story with unflinching honesty and humor amid the tragedies
that befell his company.
|Feeling inadequate about handling the Browning
Automatic Rifle in basic training, he expressed his doubts to a cadre man,
who assured him, “You don’t have to worry about it, kid. It’s given to the
biggest men in the squad.” The day he arrived on the front line, Dan,
five-foot-seven and 133 pounds, was assigned the twenty-pound BAR.
When his platoon was ambushed, Dan crawled over fire-swept terrain to
retrieve the body of his sergeant. Decades later he learned that he’d been
cited for the Silver Star, but the Jeep carrying the papers was blown up
by mortar rounds.
When a GI was killed by negligent “friendly fire,” the victim’s buddy
carried out a revenge murder.
In recounting his story, Dan never pretends to be more than he was, a
young man being shocked and shaped by the reality of war.

Body of Brave Men
The U.S. Regular Infantry and The Civil War In
Mark W. Johnson
Published by Da Capo Press
Using old regimental records from the Civil War, as well as diaries
and letters, Mark W. Johnson has unearthed a wealth of new material
about this long-neglected topic: he covers every unit and every
battle in compelling narrative and exhaustive detail and reaches
some surprising conclusions about the significant role these troops
played in the Union's eventual victory.
This book covers the full history of the four Regular Army Regiments
that fought in the Civil War's Western Theater, the 15th, 16th, 18th
and 19th U.S. Infantry Regiments.
"An absorbing true-life story...Fascinating reading...This biography
is just pure reading pleasure."
"This book is for the general reader, the enthusiast, and the
scholar. Johnson has succeeded in creating an illustrative history."

Available for immediate shipment
Taking up its position astride the Peking-Mukden [Beijing-Shenyang] railway
beginning in January, 1912, the United States Fifteenth Infantry Regiment
was engaged in protecting American interests in China. The 1000 man force
was especially challenged during the 1920s, those tumultuous years when
warlords struggled to gain ascendancy in the Chinese Republic. Although
Chiang Kai-shek established a measure of control in China by 1928, the
regiment remained in China—partially to counter Japan’s increasingly
aggressive actions—despite considerable misgivings within and outside of the
United States Army as to the feasibility, desirability, and ethical
appropriateness of the policy retaining it there. The success of the
Japanese in conquering much of eastern China finally compelled Washington to
withdraw the regiment on March 2, 1938.
This work recounts and assesses some aspects of the involvement and service
of the Fifteenth Infantry Regiment during its fateful quarter of a century
in the Orient between the World Wars. Also detailed is the Army’s service in
those years in general. Many insights are provided regarding the
self-perceptions of a key generation of U.S. military personnel deployed

THE NOT FORGOTTEN WAR chronicles the experiences of Private
Nicholas Dick who served in a machine gun crew during the last few
months of the Korean conflict. Those last months were among some
of the bloodiest as both sides fought to claim as much territory
as possible prior to reaching a cease-fire agreement. For years
after his discharge, Nick was never able to talk about his
horrific experiences and never mentioned the frequent nightmares
he suffered. After a job injury forced him to take early
retirement, he suddenly found himself becoming a victim of Post
Traumatic Stress syndrome. Here is one GI's story of war and its

Letters Home could be any family's war story. There are thousands of
families deeply affected, some with more compelling stories some
with less, all with fears they never dreamed existed. There are some
thoughts that are never far from your heart and mind. This is one
family's journey as told through the words of a soldier's mother and
her son's letters home.
Ward's son, Sean, enlisted in the infantry after the attacks on
9/11. He was driven to take up arms for his country and has not
looked back since. Sean's letters home from basic training to the
last letter home from Iraq range from joy to intensely reflective.
He serves with the 3rd Infantry Division (mechanized) and was
machine gunner on a Bradley during the first phase of Operation
Ward shares with the reader how it felt to read his letters and the
life challenges they faced while her son was in the most dangerous
place in the world.
"Mary Ward takes us on an amazing journey, from the
terrors of the battlefield to the tenderness of a mother's heart.
Her "Letters Home" should inspire us all to be brave in adversity,
and 'choose the harder right over the easier wrong'."

WWII Memoirs-3rd Infantry Division
One of 3rd Division’s Own, Authors Book
Memoirs of Terry Lloyd Tennant
At last someone has written about the long overlooked story,
of the critical part played (in December 1950) by the 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd
Division, in the vicious battle fought at Huksu-ri and Sachang-ni, southwest of
the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. The book contains 329 pages of real life
adventure, humor, suspense, excitement, worry, disappointment, heartbreak,
death, sadness, depression, recovery, happiness, and a multitude of historic
facts. His life beginning in an upstairs flat in Detroit, Michigan, this is the
story of Terry Lloyd Tennant, born into poverty during the great depression in
the 1930’s, his experiences growing up in the inner city; then (at age 18)
leaving home and enlisting in the United States Army. Known intimately only by
those who were there and survived, it is the authors hope this book will be read
by many of the 3rd Division men, so they will know and perhaps appreciate why we
who were their are so proud of this special chapter in the long and glorious
history of the -

A Biographical Novel
George Thomas Clark
Here" is a well researched and carefully written biographical novel offering
firstperson stories by the Fuehrer and a variety of other characters. This
invites the reader to peer into Hitler’s mind, talk to Eva Braun, joust with
Goebbels, and Himmler, debate with the generals, fight on land and at sea
and in the air,
and huddle in the death camps as, everywhere, civilization is consumed.
Please check out
http://www.georgethomasclark.com/ -- the author's
official web page - which features information about his biographical novel
HITLER HERE. This work is unique because all the characters have bylines and
thus the opportunity to reveal what they did and how they felt during an era
of unprecedented destruction.
The online excerpts are from the points-of-view of Hitler and six other
Generals Guderian, Halder, Rudnstedt, Rommel, Manstein, Zhukov, and Patton
also have numerous entries, and so do soldiers from a variety of countries.
At the recent Frankfurt Book Fair, HITLER HERE generated reading copy
requests from several foreign publishers, and the English language rights in
India have just been sold to Mastermind Books.

"Thunder Run: The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad"
at Amazon.com by David Zucchino
Read an interview with the author at:
Every war has images that are burned into the public's mind.
Operation Iraqi Freedom has several....the blinding sandstorms, or the photos of
Iraqis and GIs tearing down statues and paintings of Saddam. The other
memorable event of the war for many was the sight of American armor racing into
the heart of Baghdad, despite the daily assurances from Iraq's Information
Minister that the Allies were nowhere near the city.
The armor was from the US Army's 3rd Infantry Division
(Mechanized), and Los Angeles Times reporter David Zucchino was embedded with
them for their drive up into Iraq, and then on their daring "Thunder Runs" into
the city. A year later, he has released a book about the division's remarkable
armor thrusts into Baghdad and the savage fights on a major highway to the west
of the city as the division sought to re-supply the armored force. "Thunder
Run: The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad" promises to cement this amazing
story into the annals of American military accomplishments with hundreds of
first-hand accounts of what happened in the first week of
April 2003, so far from Fort Stewart, Georgia.

AUTOBAHN TO BERCHTESGADEN
by Lt Col( Sgt in WWII) Sherman W. Pratt
This book written by a WWII
member of the Army’s Third Infantry Division that led the attack into Iraq in
mid-March 2003 provides the most or only detailed and reliable account available
of the remarkable record of the Division in World War II as witnessed and
experienced by an actual participant.
The Third began its almost three years of fighting in
Africa, Italy, France and Germany with landings near Casablanca in French
Morocco. It had 34,000 casualties, in almost three years of combat, more than
any other Division in either the European or Pacific theaters. 39 members
of the Division were awarded Medals of Honor. It was the Division of Lt Audie
Murphy the war’s most decorated soldier.
The Third was also the Division that arrived first and
captured Hitler’s Bavarian retreat at Berchtesgaden in the closing hours of the
War - not the 101stAiborne Division as incorrectly reported by
Stephen Ambrose and Stephen Spielberg respectively in the book and HBO film
Band of Brothers,
