The Margraten Boys: How a European Village Kept America's Liberators Alive
Palgrave Macmillan, 23.02.2012 - 319 Seiten

For generations, local families, grateful for the sacrifice of their liberators from Nazi occupation, have cared for not only the graves, but the memories, of over 10,000 US soldiers in the cemetery of Margraten in the Netherlands.
