9781425969509: I Kept My Word: The Personal Promise Between a World War II Army Private and His Captain About What Really Happened to Glenn Miller

Click this link to read a review of I Kept My Word. Many people have stepped into the spotlight, claiming they knew where and how Glenn Miller died, but none of those people were in Clarence Wolfe's shoes. He was there, manning the computer that tracked enemy aircraft off the coast of England. So was his captain, who ordered that the secret of Miller's demise remain between them. In the 62 years since that fateful day in 1944, the secret indeed remained between the private and his commander. Now that the captain is no longer alive, however, Clarence Wolfe believes it is his responsibility to history to let the secret be known. He has done so through personal pain and rivers of tears, tears that flow easily whenever he listens to the great hits of the bandleader whose special sound swept across radio airwaves around the world and softened the blows of a deadly war.

About the Author:

Clarence B. Wolfe grew up the youngest of 11 children, living dirt poor on a farm in southern Indiana. Whoever said, "you can take the man out of the small town, but you can't take the small town out of the man" must have known Clarence Wolfe. Whether he was living in Detroit, Michigan or Folkestone, England or Liège, Belgium, he was just an Indiana farm boy. Mr. Wolfe not only survived the most intense and costly military battle of all times - the Battle of the Bulge - he also survived harrowing days trapped behind enemy lines and a treacherous rescue. His many brushes with death during the war made him conclude that he survived for a purpose - to tell the true story about what really happened to Glenn Miller. That he kept this secret for 62 years bears great testimony to his personal integrity. A resident of Bloomington, Indiana, I Kept My Word is Mr. Wolfe's first book. Susan Goodrich Giffin, a freelance writer/editor and author of several books, resides in Dearborn, Michigan. For more information about books written or edited by Susan Giffin, check out her AuthorHouse web site, www.authorsusangiffin.com.
