As an amateur historian, thanks for sharing this information.

Sounds like a good book and it would make a heck of a movie.

Fact is stranger than fiction, as is evidenced by the lunacy that has taken hold of our great nation.

Part of the reason I love this site so much is the diverse information that is to be found.

Thanks again for posting this story. Sent the story onto my father, an 88 year-old WWII veteran.
