Awesome! Just think of the educational impact if more people did that. I'm currently reading a book, "On the Wings of Dawn", written by Laura A.Edge, a local author. She writes about her father's experiences as a POW in Germany and the German version of a death march.
It is very well written and has drawn me into each situation as if I'm standing there observing. I'm about 2/3 through it.
I've met the author twice through a friend (how I happened to get the book) while we worked the "Thunder Over Michigan" airshow at Willow Run Airport, Ypsilanti, Michigan, home of the Ford built B-24 Liberator and the Yankee Air Museum.
Laura had some real personal experiences while gathering her information including visiting Germany, talking with an individual who saw her father's plane shot down and he gave her a piece of that aircraft that he had picked up as a souvenir.
