“Unearthing Soldier Stories”


This website is dedicated to preserving soldier stories from the European Theater of Operations in World War II. As an award-winning author and historian, I have spent thirty years investigating the Battle of the Bulge, although other areas have also drawn my attention.


This website delves into my books and articles plus the research behind them. You’ll find untold stories and rare primary-source material from libraries, government archives, and private collections around the world.

By joining this site, you’ll gain unlimited access to my online archive with free, downloadable files. You’ll also receive email updates when I post additional documents, including new discoveries and records digitized from my personal archive. Sign up now!
