The Hodges Bridge - Walt's Daughter - 12-01-2014

I bought this book on Ebay. Won it last night. Of course I will scan and share when it arrives. Great acquisition.

I am so happy you got the book!


I never knew it existed!


It will be exciting to hear what you think of it.


My Dad was debriefed somewhere in that Remagen area in what had been possibly a brewery. Gen. Collins told Gen. Hodges about my Dad and Guidry and their escape, and that conversation is recorded in Hodges' published diary on March 21st, 1945.

Another fascinating facet!


It's just a small pamphlet, but nonetheless a rare and great one. I had never seen one before.

I often wonder what will be a neat ebay item from the Iraq war that I just threw away. "That's a boring pamphlet!!" >toss!< But someone will find it interesting ages and ages hence (as Robert Frost Put it).

Okay, here's the scanned booklet. It's in excellent condition. Was printed in 1945. Looks brand new.
