Hello HaEn!

Glad to see that your book will be published soon. You talked about it before on another thread and I remember about the style that you chose to write the book in, you said on how you wrote it as more of a story than as an autobiography. I am curious as to why this format? Was it easier to write in a story-format than as an autobiography-format?

I am curious because most WWII Veterans have always written about their experiences in an autobiography-format or as a memoir-format or something along those lines. Having your book as a story-format is indeed interesting. Is it explained in your book that you are indeed a veteran or do you choose to not reveal that fact?

Cheers,

Wolfkin

I am curious as to if the publisher, Aberjona, has approved it. The reason is that you talked about it before on another thread. I remember about the style that you chose to write the book in, you said on how you wrote it as more of a story than as an autobiography.

Aberjona states in their Author Guidelines that they prefer Unit Histories, Memoirs, Battle and Campaign Histories, Significant Subjects and Reference Studies on Units, Equipment and Personalities. It does not seem that they would like a story-format book. See here for the guidleines:

Panzerbrigade 105

Post by Timm Haasler » 17 Jul 2005 06:45

Hi all,

I just published my first book. The book is about Panzerbrigade 105 which was raised in July/August 1944 on the Mielau training ground. On Sept. 1st it was transfered to the West, reaching the area between Liege and Brussels after three days. For almost one week it fought a delaying action between Louvain and Verviers. On Sept. 11th it was trapped to the west of Eupen by 3rd US Arm.Div. and only small groups managed to escape. These small groups fought on for 12 days together with elements of 9. Pz.Div. between the German border and the town of Stolberg. By Sept. 23rd what was left of Pz.Brig. 105 and 9. Pz.Div. were withdrawn from the front and the brigade was integrated into 9. Pz.Div. As the brigade was attached to many other units during this period the book also covers the liberation of Eastern Belgium and the first battle of Aachen seen from German and American side.

The book is mainly based on German and American documents from the NARA and BAMA. Wherever available I integrated eye-witness reports of veterans. I gathered over 140 pictures which had been taken in this area of operation in September 1944, I also added numerous maps to show how the battle was fought. Over 20 attachments will provide additional information's; for instance a complete overview of losses in men and material for the brigade or an OoB's of all German units involved in this area. In all the book has 368 pages and is written in German. An English edition should be out by the end of this year or early next year.

Best regards
Timm Haasler

My first ever attempt is not even on the presses yet, but will post details here when known. It will be called "On A Sailor's Grave, (No Roses Grow)" which was sung by the survivors of the Scharnhorst as they were waiting to be rescued by the Royal Navy.

Now that sounds like an interesting book, is it factual or fictional story.

It's fiction, Red Devil. You can download a couple of pages from the site to get a flavour of it.

It follows some fictional characters in 24 Pz.Div, and a group of their Russian opponents, through the approach to Stalingrad and the battle that follows. There are a few historical characters - von Lenski, commander of 24 Pz.Div, makes a brief appearance, for example.

Congrats Mike on your success. I'm also writing a book, and look forward to getting it published one day as well (probably on my own). :D
