New website in the making!
Sorry for the lack of updates on this website. These last months I have been very busy doing research for my book about the 9th Infantry Division’s actions in the Hurtgen Forest. I have spend many hours gathering documents, studying them, writing with veterans, interviewing them, and writing texts for my book. I also visited the Hurtgen Forest in Germany last May for field research. A report about that trip will be online soon as well. Right now, I am still working on the pages. Thank you for the support, and the patience!
