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
I noticed that the book was copied poorly
and the scale has to be adjusted under
Zoom to 30 percent scale. Then you can

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.

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.
