Publisher's Description

This is the story of Ira “Teen” Palm, a soldier in World War II, from Mount Vernon, NY, through the European Theater of World War II, to his acquisition of a pistol engraved with Hitler’s initials as he stormed Hitler’s Munich apartment in a covert operation. The story of the man and the pistol has never been told—and might just write a new chapter in history.

Publisher's Weekly

When young Ira "Teen" Palm goes off to fight against Hitler and the invading German armies, he has little to shore up his courage apart from his faith in God and his intense patriotism. Both would play an enormous role in his lengthy career in the armed forces, but they would particularly direct his actions as he fights in a foreign land against a brutal and determined dictator. After the war, Palm's mentor, the Rev. Charles Woodbridge, is the recipient of an unusual gift -- a "golden pistol given to Hitler by the Walther family" -- taken by Palm as a grisly souvenir of the Fuehrer's armory. John Woodbridge, son of Charles, knows there's a fascinating story to be told. He and Pulitzer Prize-wining journalist Possley (The Brown's Chicken Massacre) lead readers through a tale brimming with exciting accounts of people risking all in the name of God and freedom. Taking us through the wartime challenges Palm and his wife, Helen, face, this fast-paced story reminds us that ordinary people can do extraordinary things, even under great pressure, when fueled by God's amazing grace.
