This book contains over 350 pages of World War II information with approximately 300 pages of which are declassified National Archives war diaries, unit reports, and After Action Reports. It was compiled from a range of sources including my family's collection of records awarded to and collected by my late Grandfather S/SGT Paul M. Esterle and his War Bride Elsie M. Esterle.
Captured German pay records from Normandy, France and a brief history of my Grandmother's memoirs of the War and her time in the National Fire Service are documented.
With a mix of historic and sentimental information, this book is not only a tribute to my Grandparent's WWII contributions, but also the Octofoil 9th Infantry Division 60th Infantry Regiment.
