Modest proposals

July 18, 2013

I’ve thought of some new directions for my book:  describing our visit to the “grand blockhouse” at St. Nazarre, France, the Nazi concrete bunker that was an observation post for the huge guns inland.  This subject was explored in my friend’s book, “Hitler’s U-Boat Fortresses.” Another would be describing my experiences with 96-year-old Gordon Weber, WW II staff sergeant, as he lay dying (or sat, more often than not) during his final year.  I kept extensive notes the entire time.  A third would be more details about our childhood WW II games in the aftermath of the actual war.  After all, war veterans were ubiquitous.

  1. I like the idea of the Gordon Weber Talks

  2. I don’t think you should do it too much but the WW II games might also be interesting, if you could find a way to make them relevant to a post WW II America
