World War II The 103rd Cactus Division Story

During the research phase for the book "Bunker Treasures" [screenplay "Amber Room Treasures"], the author made an appointment with the Director of the Innsbruck, Austria's main library.  I was most interested in finding information about the surrender of the German Army at the conclusion of WWII which took place in Innsbruck.   In meeting with the Director, an inquiry was made if the Library might have any material or information about the final days of the war. She thought for a moment and then asked me to wait while she went back into the archives.

 When she returned she handed a tattered and dust-covered book to me.  This 8 x 11-inch hand-typed story was written by a couple of GI's tracing the "Cactus Route" of the U.S. Army.  The book was entitled "Report After Action The Story of The 103D Infantry Division." 

The World War II The 103d Cactus Division book is the true story based on side notes from the original text, which was written in 1945 by Ralph Mueller, a former assistant city editor of the Minneapolis Star-Journal and Jerry Turk, a reporter for the Cleveland News. 

The original story highlighted the experiences of the 103D from their landing in Marseille in October 1944 to their last push  through Germany and on into Innsbruck in May 1945.  Special credit to the two authors and to the men and women who made the many sacrifices to finally end the scourge of the Nazis and WWII.

Daughter of Odysseus: Ithaka Calling

Daughter of Odysseus is a trilogy journeying the adventures of Christine. 

Ithaka Calling is the first in the Daughter of Odysseus trilogy. 

Teenage Christine stands at the threshold of adulthood.   A first-generation Australian of Greek descent, Christine has always been indifferent to her heritage: Greek school is a bore; her father’s patriotism is uninspiring; and the people around her deride Greeks as subhuman.

Then Christine is betrayed by those closest to her, and she plunges into deep depression.  From the abyss of despair and nihilism, something stirs within her: a deep desire to reclaim her heritage and find meaning and fulfillment through the tradition and spirituality of her ancestors.

Paralleling the great Odysseus’ journey home, Daughter of Odysseus is not merely a story of homecoming; it is a story of hope over despair, of adventure and love, of needing to belong and a yearning to escape from mundanity; of deep spiritual yearning in a post-Christian world.

Christine learns and grows with every step in her journey. And she can’t help but wonder: Is it the destination that is the goal or the journey and what one learns along the way that truly matters in life?
