I found the author section of this forum quite by accident, and then found some amazing books by Doug Nash, Stephan Hamilton, and Jason Mark, to name a few. These books were pretty much out of the so-called mainstream, ones you would never find normally in a bookstore such as Borders or Barnes and Nobles. You might run across some in an extensive college library. If not for the internet, I probably would never have known about the authors, let alone their amazing books.
I decided to explore some more authors, and read the section set up for corresponding with you. Moments later I was in Amazon.com, looking for your titles. Despite the cost, I managed to convince my fiscal department (the wife) that I really needed your book Totenkopf. This was mainly due to the posted comments by others on this forum. I was so pleased with your book.
I just finished reading it, and was sorry it ended. The photographs and narratives are great. I enjoyed it so much. The quality of the photographs is first rate. While there are some grammatical errors, this in no way detracts from the content. You really get your money's worth with this book. I couldn't be more pleased.
I was sorry there wasn't any record of the fate of the photographer whose photos were included as the album of SS-Infanterie-Regiment 9 "Thule," in the back of the book. It would have been nice to know if he survived the war, and also survived the aftermath in Russia. As we know, very few did.
Thanks for a really first rate book. I couldn't have been more pleased with your research, photographs, and efforts.
