Greetings to my donors, friends and well-wishers. Once again I must apologize for my neglect of this website. Much of that neglect has had to do with personal and unavoidable issues in my life—some good, some bad, some simply neutral. Most of the neglect, however, has had to do with working day-in, day-out on my next book, Summer, 1945—Germany, Japan and the Harvest of Hate. I am happy to announce that the days, weeks, months, and years of effort are paying off and the book is quickly nearing completion. My hope, my goal, is to see the book published and available no later than March 1. Given the current circumstances, that date may be a bit optimistic but I think I can safely guarantee that the book will be out no later than April, 2018.
Although there is still some intense writing, re-writing and research yet to be done, and although there are still some physical issues with the book yet to be resolved, my sense is that when once finished Summer, 1945 will deliver the same power and carry the same impact as my previous book, Hellstorm—The Death of Nazi Germany, 1944-1945. And for those of you who have had the courage to begin that latter book, and for those of you who have had the grit and guts to actually finish it, I don’t think I need to add anything more about Summer, 1945.
And so, to those of you who like your history honest, accurate and politically-incorrect, I again ask that you give what you can. Your generous financial help will insure that I continue with this very important project to its final conclusion.
1. To those of you who donate $50 or more, I will, upon publication, send a signed copy of the book, Summer, 1945.
2. Additionally, to those of you who give, or who have already given, $100 or more, i will also, upon publication, send you another book that should be published later in 2018.
3. Also, in the event a film is made based on Summer, 1945—and that seems more than likely at this point—I will also see that all of you receive the DVD.
