News from Joe Balkoski
12 August 2013

Author Joe Balkoski sends this info:

"A French translation of my first book, Beyond the Beachhead—written in 1987—has been released in Europe by Histoire et Collections under the title Le 29e Division Americaine en Normandie.

"Meanwhile, I'm about halfway done with my fifth and final book in the 29th Division series. The primary focus of this book, entitled They Who Have Borne the Battle, is the 29th's assault crossing of the flood-swollen Roer River on February 23, 1945, and the division's subsequent blitzkrieg across the Cologne Plain toward the Rhine."
