One of my most treasured childhood possessions (note the worn state of it...) was the book pictured above, a classic work on American Indians by Edwin Tunis filled with his insightful writings and wonderful pen and ink drawings

Note the mixture of stug crew men wearing field grey panzer uniforms and maintenance personnel wearing denim fatigues.
(unfortunately) Also my people
(regrettably) Also my war

I'm reading my own copy right now, which I got when my local library gave it away. A really wonderful collection of factual info, unblemished with the sort of prejudice you might expect from a book published in 1959. Mine is a first edition but in the shape you would expect to see in a used library book. It has a permanent place now on my bookshelf! On the search for other works by Edwin Tunis. ��
