Here's what people are saying about Alamo Doughboy:

"Very much enjoyed your informative presentation at the Ruth Culver Library. Just finished reading Alamo Doughboy and couldn’t put it down. Very well done. As I mentioned to you last Saturday, I’ve read a lot of WWII biographies, but only a few of The Great War. Your talk and book is the incentive I need to read more on WW I. I regret that Judge is not able to hear your excellent presentation and read your well written book. How proud he would be."
