I would like to buy a copy of the history of the 23rd tank battalion. As i am interested in the battles and history at Herrshlisheim and a battle near the town of Althausen and Nuenkaerchen. As my father told and wrote the story of when Lt. Vickless Died.

Dear Ms Kruse, Please contact Bill Lenches,
at this email address to obtain a copy of
the History of the 23d Tank Battalion.
As you know, this history is on this website
under BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES.
I noticed that the book was copied poorly
and the scale has to be adjusted under
Zoom to 30 percent scale. Then you can
print the page. But it is long, and maybe
Bill Lenches can help you out.
Also, there is a new book on Herrlisheim that is being sold at the Museum.
CROSSING THE ZORN. This book describes the
heroism of Lt. Vickless at Herrlisheim.
Did the author of this book use your father's memoir as a source?
Do you think your father's memoir might be
included in BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES?
Please contact Bill Lenches on this.
Your father's memoir may have important
information for the current effort to build
a display about Herrlisheim at the Museum.
Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

The museum can have a copy of the History of the 23rd Tank Battalion printed and comb bound at Kinkos at a cost of about $27.00 plus shipping. Please advise me or Bill Lenches if you wish us to have this done.
