A captivating look at a unique moment in time. This is one person's fascinating story of life that most of us can never imagine. Over 140 photographs, most from that era, add to the authenticy. Lbecker! started out as a simple history of my Army Security Agency detachment, but I soon found I wasn't an historian. All I know for sure is what happened to me. Well, at least reasonably sure. I vividly recall that the nasty edginess of the Cold War was still in full bloom, and so were a multitude of eager young frauleinin seeking to earn their way to the promised land - the United States. The romances begun in Lbeck between former foes ended in a multitude of happy marriages - and a few disasters. That's what this book is all about - plus anecdotes and tales from other Lbeckers who were more frisky and fearless than I. It all makes for a good read - and a little history lesson as an added bonus. Lbeck was, and still is, a special place on this planet; don't miss a chance to visit this city.
