Looking to the Past Through the Eyes of a Veteran

You can learn a great deal about WWII through the eyes of a man who was there.

J. Ted Hartman is the author of a just-released memoir of his experiences as an army tank driver in WWII. On Saturday, he held a book signing at Barnes and Noble Bookstore.

It's the story of Hartman as a young man, who was just at 19 years of age when he drove a tank into combat for the 11th Armored Division. He faced fierce attacks against the Germans in the Battle of the Bulge.

Hartman gives riveting accounts of the shifting tides of battle, concentration camps, and the final allied breakout. Hartman retired a few years ago as Dean of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine.
