Your research and detail is fascinating. Your good heart and compassion for human struggles is so moving. Your books are a form of therapy for me. Because of them I understand both my history and childhood so much better. Tank Commander was a tough read for me. My father was killed in August of 1944 in France–infantry with tank battalion. I needed to understand what he went through. I have idealized him and I know he died for a great cause. I have read everything you have written and don’t want to miss any of your work. Please notify me of any and all publications you release. Janice Young Charlotte, North Carolina
