“One Marine’s deeply personal account of the cold realities of combat.” —John H. Briggs, Major, United States Army, Retired

“I felt informed, moved and, ultimately, encouraged.” — David J. Hogan, editor-in-chief and contributing writer, The Holocaust Chronicle

“We cannot possibly comprehend the battlefield terror that changed their inner being forever. ‘War is Personal’ helps us to better understand” — Lt. Col. Jaime Parent, USAF, author of Moving Past PTSD

The Invasion of Okinawa was one of the bloodiest battles of WWII Pacific. Roy Wilkes, Private, USMC was unfortunate enough to have a front-row seat. True, gripping stories and pictures reveal the mind, heart, and soul of a fighting WWII Marine.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK:
“The grim reaper missed me. The dumb bastard had a close-up swing at me on six different occasions—and missed.”

“The casualties were monumental. Trucks were coming down the lines with Marines piled like cordwood. They put ponchos over ’em, but you could see all these feet dangling out. It was like a conveyor belt. We were going up and they were coming back. The only difference is we were alive—and they were dead.”

“Continuous rain dampened the soul. The low, thick dark clouds made sure God didn’t see. What happened here was a secret from Him. God was busy someplace else. So this part of His Universe went insane.”

One man’s tale of escape from Communism in WWII to his new and successful life and family in the United States.

“From Hell to Iowa” is a true story of a journey in life that very few have taken. Through incredible circumstances Charlie Notis and his mother were separated from the rest of the family and stuck inside communist Albania under the ruthless dictatorship of Enver Hoxha  when Charlie was a baby at the end of the second World War. He and his mother made a harrowing escape when he was 10 years old and joined the rest of the family in Brockton, MA. He eventually ended up in Iowa where he earned a Master of Science degree in meteorology from Iowa State University and co-founded a weather consulting company called Freese-Notis Weather in Des Moines, got married, and raised a family. The twists and turns in Charlie’s life are nothing short of miraculous.

Memoir – Lamb of Legacy

Lamb of Legacy: A Child’s Survival in Hitler’s BerlinLamb of Legacy
By Edeltraud F. Fellendorf
Publisher: Tate Publishing
ISBN: 978-1620248355
Published: January 2013
Pages: 284
Genre: Memoir

Lamb of Legacy: A Child’s Survival in Hitler’s Berlin is the beautifully honest and haunting true story of Edeltraud Fellendorf’s childhood in Silesia and adolescent years in Berlin, Germany, where she was raised in the shadow of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich, the madness of World War 2, and the years that followed. She survives today through the grace of God, and is determined to finally share her story before everything is forgotten—before the past is buried and no one remembers the ugliness of a world at war and what it means to be a German girl, a sacrificial Lamb that innocently carried on Hitler’s Legacy.
