Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The original "Tanks for the Memories" was published in 1994. It was a learning experience in that it was a debut work for both the author and the publisher. The production left a great deal to be desired. Perhaps the oddest thing about the book was that it had legs. People were always contacting us saying that their copy had walked on over to a friend's house and the friend gave it to somebody else to read, and now they need another copy. Because so many of those copies just walked away, the first edition has sold out. Because the author continued to record the oral histories of battalion members after the book came out, he chose to write an expanded edition, incorporating all of the original material. The result is a book that is twice as long, twice as good, and only a little more expensive.

From the Author

My father served with the 712th Tank Battalion in World War II. When I first attended one of their reunions, in 1987, I found myself riveted as I would listen in on story after story, many of which which I soon realized these veterans didn't share with their children, and even their wives. I thought these stories would make a great book. At the time, I didn't know that I would write that book. But I think you'll find "Tanks for the Memories" to be in the greatest tradition of authors such as Studs Terkel and Stephen Ambrose.
