Very exciting! I am a collector of self published books by veterans. My focus is mainly Europe (ETO) but also have some on the MTO and PTO.

 

A selection of my collection can be found here www.basher82.nl/selfpublishedindex.htm

 

If anyone has some pointers where I could get other, PLEASE let me know!!! It is very much appreciated.

Hey Stevin,

 

Herbert Schemmerling self publishes his book "Born on a Sunday", he served in both German and American armies. It's around $22 or $23.

 

I have his email address, if you're interested.

The Young Liberators - by Kenneth C. Thayer with Allan D. Foote - Price $14.95

http://www.oneidacountyhistory.org/Bookstore/BookStore2.asp

 

This is the documented record of a solitary combat soldier. It is the factual saga of a United States infantry company of 200 GI's, a regiment of four thousand, one division of fifteen thousand. Brave men: forgotten to many except their families and comrades. This book is an archival reconstruction of discarded units of organization deactivated from military service fifty-six years ago.

 

Between June 1944 and May 1945, the men of the United States 301"' Infantry Division participated in every major western European campaign, from Normandy to the Elbe River, earning them the, sobriquet, "Workhorse of the Western Front". The official United States Army Historian for the Western Front, S. L. A. Marshall, would proclaim the 30th as "The finest infantry division in the European Theater of Operations."

 

Except for a period of convalescence, PFC Kenneth C. Thayer was with them almost every step of the way. This is the beginning of his story: Volume One: From Civilian to Soldier. It is a privilege to share it with you.

Rocky, the 34th's book is already mentioned in our BOOK SECTION. This post is covering other books which have never been mentioned on our site before. We are trying to give everyone exposure.
