Jun 15, 2017 - LCGS Program - The Tank Commander with Karen Schutte at 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM - PRPLD OLD TOWN LIBRARY
Karen Schutte will give a Power Point Presentation of the final part in her four-book series, TANK COMMANDER. “Arnold Korell (Kessel) leaves home, fresh out of high school. After a short wait in England in 1943, the 81st Tank Battalion, Third Army led by generals Patton and Hodges is baptized by fire in Normandy. Schutte describes her writing, “this is a book about war, about one boy who left home and after two years in the daily hell of war, returned as a haunted, internally damaged man. This novel contains some profanity as used by the soldiers in WWII. I didn’t think it would be authentic or real if the tankers, looking through their periscopes and spotting 3 German Tiger tanks approaching their inadequate Sherman tank, said, “Golly gee, here come 3 Tigers!” I knew this man, my uncle and I remember how tormented by memories he was, esp. after serving in the Korean War as well as WWII. It was a very difficult book for me to write, but I was blessed have his ‘daily log’ as my footprint. The pictures I selected for this PPP will visually demonstrate what Arnold did and saw.” Thank you.
