I just discovered that people want to know about the rights to this book.

My father wrote this book and only a few copies were made. He was going to write more books but died and left everything to my mother who left everything to me. He died in l976 and all of his WWII possessions are in large trunks and he took a lot of pictures.

He always kept the rights to this book but gave a few copies to people he knew when it was published because he wanted to get together with some other army buddies and write more books before he suddenly died.

I have the original. My address is 99 Fountainhead Ct. Martinez, California, 94553 and address mail to Kerry Pay and I will try to look thru all his stuff.

He told me a lot of stories when I was growing up and since he was a photographer in the war he took a lot of pictures. He particularly told me about his having to take pictures to document the concentration camps when they were liberated because General Eisenhower and Patton did not ever want this to be forgotten and wanted a record.
