The majority of Americans know of the fifty eight thousand who died in the Vietnam War, but very few have heard of the hundreds of thousands who have died since its end. They are the forgotten victims of a war fought by politicians instead of generals with no real plan for victory. Vietnam Veterans by the thousands have died since the war because of their exposure to Agent Orange, but so many more have taken their own lives to forget the Hell on Earth which they endured. In my book, I try to take the reader back in time so they can understand the real story behind the Vietnam War as seen thru the eyes of those of us who fought it. My story tells of the struggles of day to day life as I and my brothers faced the enemy in battle in Vietnam, and it also tells of their bravery and sacrifice for each other. I have tried to explain to the reader how combat affects those of us burdened with pain, loss and guilt for those who could not return. I hope my story becomes a lasting tribute to those men and women lost in a war in which America seemed to have forgotten so many years ago. I also hope and pray that it will save the life of just one veteran before he or she gives up their struggle to find peace.

This book not only encompasses events in Europe with the American GI, it takes you to my talks with Richard Nixon, Robert Kennedy, Frank Sinatra and top music people; and with the former Chancellor of Germany, the King of Hungary, and German generals who helped us win World War II. I include my meeting Otto Scorzeny, the dashing Errol Flynn-like hero who rescued Mussolini from captivity, who later received retribution from his own people. Many dangers for our country lurk in the shadows waiting to happen. This book takes you there to caution and alert you.

This book is about truth and regard for important issues that face our nation. These concerns should not be taken lightly. My wish is to get the public involved in finding a way to make a difference by making informed choices. This book is about my life and how people placed ambition and pride over all other values, it is about the hatred that cost this country many lives. There are people who stand out in my mind because they went beyond ordinary weaknesses to stand up for what they felt was right. They showed courage in the face of fear and carried on bravely for their fellow man in the name of justice and freedom.

I ask that each reader seriously consider the evidence I present and form his or her own opinion on some controversial issues. As I present my thoughts and experiences, you will come to know that I place a high value on empathy and compassion for people. My hope is that this book will help remind you of the injustices all around us. My mission is to keep the heroes of the last century fresh in our minds so that their humanitarian efforts will be passed down to our next generation.
World War II Letters <BR>A Boy's Memories of Hitler-Germany <Br>By: Harro Lapinski

In the year 1966, while our family prepared to emigrate to Canada, we found a bundle of 110 letters in our attic in Hamburg, Germany. They were written in 1942 and 1943 between my mother in Hamburg and my father in various war-time locations in Poland, Russia and the Southern Ukraine.

These “World War II - Letters” turned out to be a treasure chest of history, and an example of my parents’ eloquence, wisdom, insight and love. They triggered a tidal wave of long suppressed and ignored memories in me that compelled me to write about my experiences as a 6 to 12 year old “Boy in Hitler-Germany” from 1941 to 1945 and the post-war time from 1945 to 1948.

The story line will take the reader from a tranquil pre-war scenario to ABSOLUTE HELL. Eventually “Hell” was overcome. Overcome by the resiliency of the people and how well they adapted to adverse situations with optimism and resourcefulness. I am sure this ability holds true for many war-besieged people in the world.

Two people who grew up in the mountains of Kentucky in the carefree days of the fifties have now grown old. One day while reminiscing about those wonderful days, they decided to go back there one more time. On their journey to the place they once called home, they would visit many familiar places, and occasionally a tear would make its way down the cheek as their mind went back to yesterday and the good times of the fifties.

The First Time I Saw Her is a book of short stories. I compiled nearly a year’s blogs about my life and my experiences that everyday life blessed me with. It is by no means a diary as these experiences are little glimpses into my past. In no particular chronological order, they are written with the hope that others will ponder the different subjects and perhaps write a little about their own lives.
