PostSubject: Farewell to Hamburg   15/11/2012, 14:41

Many months ago I visited this site and asked a few questions and for some guidance regarding the period 1945 onwards and particularly about Hamburg. This for the book I was writing at that time, called Farewell to Hamburg.

I was contacted by many helpful members and have been grateful ever since, thank you once again for your interest.

My book has now been published and is freely available at Amazon, Authorhouse UK and Waterstones Book Store in London.

Why not look at what I have written, using the ISBN Number only to search:

9781477242018

This will locate the book for you and you will see that it will surely be of interest to anyone who served in WW2 or was part of the occupation forces from 1945 onward, particularly in Hamburg.

I wish you a good read.

Hi Dieter Rudolph,
Have read the portion of your book on line, very interesting; a good memory
I was a child during WWII close to London; but you had it 100 times tougher than we did. At our age boys there was plenty to keep us occuppied, with much collecting of souvenirs and exchanging of live ammunition at school. The official figures for our area states we had 1072 air raid warnings during 1939-1945; if you could hear a bomb whistling down it has missed you
Those eastern counties manufactured incendenary bombs for "Hitler" did not explode in soft ground, picked up a few one morning
Very surprised you could get into any kaserne even as children; also you were lucky to get permission to travel to Cosweg and back, travels controls very strict from what I hear; trains also wanted for military
Important to record history, especially for future generalations
Lucky to have survived the war, regards Tony

Thank's for your comments Tony. We are all lucky to have lived through that period, many were not.

Glad you like the book, it is now also available as an e book for Kinle and is very much cheaper, look at Amazon e books ISBN 9781477242025.

Personally I feel a book held in the hand is much more rewarding and having seen my book on Kindle (borrowed a friends) it looses a lot of impact is my view. Perhaps I am too old for all this modern stuff.

Yes, I believe that we were fortunate in being able to travel as we did, also the escapades we got up to as kid's.

Why not get someone to buy the book for you for X-mas. Will help them also perhaps as wondering what to get people has for me always been a bloody headache.

I sincerely hope that if you have purchased my book "Farewell to Hamburg" first published 2012, that you found it interesting, reading how a German family lived through and was affected by WWII. At the time of writing all that is documented regarding our father and the fact that he was reported missing presumed dead at Stalingrad in 1943 was as far as our family knew correct.

However, after the death of our fathers second wife, when clearing out the apartment in Cologne for selling off, we discovered documents in 2014 that had never been mentioned by him before he died in 1975 or later by his second wife, perhaps she did not know they existed.

My book of 2012 was then altered to include what we had discovered and published again this time using Amazon and WWW.Createspace.com and Amazon company for independent authors, such as myself.

For us to discover what really happened to our Wehrmacht Father was amazing!

Never read the book? Then visit https://www.amazon.com/author/dieterrudolph and see books published by me. If you purchase FAREWELL TO HAMBURG do ensure you purchase the November 7 2015 version, the one listed in paperback at $13.53 NOT the 2012 version stupidly offered at $760.00 over which I have no control.

HAVE PURCHASED AND READ THE BOOK published in 2012?

No need to be without the information we discovered, just drop me a line dieter.rudolphs.books@gmail.com and I will send you the pages that illustrate the complete details written by our father as an mail attachment. No charge, just want you to also know the true story.
