WAR VICTIMS A GERMAN FAMILY’S STORY OF CONFRONTING SOCIAL NORMALCY

by Anna Haman

“Post-war recollections are colorfully and realistically described in WAR VICTIMS.  Anna’s strong character served her well in her life’s struggles.  Through her words the reader can easily visualize the people and place she writes.”- FROM MY HOME, NEVER TO RETURN: A Polish Child’s WWII Memoir.

“The protagonist was a great lady with a splendid soul.  May she rest in peace.  I read every word (of chapter 3)- it was that interesting and extremely well written.  PS I opened Camp Lance, Las Vegas, New Mexico 10/19/42”- Raymond Haber, DEVOUT JEWISH MAN of 89 years old, retired taxicab owner New York City.

“Having read all of Anna’s writing I know more about her than is in this book.  Anna begins this book background details on her parents’ lives, before she was born.  The book then traces her life from birth to her teen years, verbally fascinating, take us on a journey about her growing up, learning about life and secret moments while sharing  her thoughts, fears and perceptions about the world she lived in.

“H prose makes her alive and admired.  It is as if the reader was a next-door neighbor or one of her best friends.  Her manner of storytelling and her descriptions of her adventures are neither boring nor dull.  Reading her words about growing up in post war Germany easily places you by her side, observing silently what she does and what she thinks.  You, the reader, are on a journey you do not want to end.  You want more.”- Dr. Bob Worthington, President of United States Pilots Association

Gary W. Metz Author- THE LAST OF THE RANDOLPH BLUES

THE LAST OF THE RANDOLPH BLUES

by Gary W. Metz

This book began with the author’s search for information about his uncle, Virgil Radclife, a WWII pilot.  The quest for details of his uncle’s life in the military began with a letter to St. Louis Military Records Center in 1988 and culminated in this in-depth and compelling story of the lives of ten men and their service to their country, all of whom trained to be fighter pilots at the West Point of the Air, Randolph Field in San Antonio, Texas.  They were part of the class of men who were dubbed The Last of the Randolph Blues.

Through years of tenacious searching, author Gary Metz gathered military and personal records, tracked the pilots and/or their families, read all material he could find on the subject, and built a history of these ten men (all assigned to the 60th Fighter Squadron of the 33rd Fighter Group) and their years during WWII.  The book is rich in details of military life including personal diary entries, letters, and military historical records during their assignment in the U.S., North Africa, and Italy.

In addition to the historic contents are entries that humanize the intensely dehumanizing elements of war: HISTORY OF 60TH FIGHTER SQUADRON SUPPLEMENT FEB. 2, 1943

Gary W. Metz has had a life-long interest in aircraft and also studied history in college.  Gary Metz is a member of the P-38 National Association and the 1st Fighter Group Association, and has written articles for their newsletters.  Metz has a story in the compilation work P-38 LIGHTNING UNFORGETTABLE MISSIONS OF SKILL, LUCK, AND COURAGE and has had articles published in LOGBOOK, an aviation history magazine.  In addition Gary Metz is acknowledged as a contributing source for P-40s OF THE MEDITERRANEAN by Tomasz Szlagor and was interviewed for the documentary SURVIVORS’ STORIES by Michael Fraicelli.
