MoPo tells the HITCH story on WBEZ (NPR) in Chicago

 

June 6, 2011 marks the 67th anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Normandy. The fighting that ensued took many twists and turns. Those who survived came home with battle scars, memories good and bad and in some cases souvenirs. One was a gun believed to have belonged to Adolf Hitler himself.

When local history professor John Woodbridge saw a TV story detailing the gun’s auction he had a flashback of sorts-his father had shown him the gun as a child.

In Hitler in the Crosshairs: A GI’s Story of Courage and Faith, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Maurice Possley and Woodbridge tell the story behind the gun. Woodbridge and Possley recently spoke to Eight Forty-Eight’s Alison Cuddy about the book.
