  • Unpublished WWII in Europe, from Finding Granddad's War

    These are from my recently published book www.FindingGranddadsWar.com.
    1. The Roer River Crossing in Julich, Germany. The Allies had to build foot-bridges across the swollen Roer River. The Germans were within artillery range and as soon as the Allies had completed the bridge and started sending troops and supplies over, the Germans would blow it up. The Allies would then start again. Some bridges were built several times.
    2. Map of the Roer bridge sites.
    3. A bar in Germany. Finding liquor was a favorite pastime for the GIs I spoke to.
    4. Heil Hitler? Taking time out in Germany to mock The Fuhrer.
    5. Leon, a friend in Germany who helped me find Dutch civilians. His hobby is digging in German battlefields. Here with one of his finds.


    If you’d like more photos let me know. Or buy my book.

      Wow, that looks exactly like my brother-in-law!
      Thanks for sharing these pic's and the info. about your
      publication. I have recently come across an entire file box
      filled with pic's of my dad and his "brothers" as they
      endured WWII from the perspective of a 17thAirborne soldier.
      From Belgium, to Tennessee to Berlin and everything in-between.

      For me it was dad's war although it was Uncle's, Father-in-law's
      etc, etc. as well.

      Thanks again,

      Robert
