author Paul Hoesl will share information from his new book Amazing
Journey: One Man's Adventure from Nazi Germany to America. Walter
Zehl's story provides a rare, firsthand glimpse into a German soldier's
life during World War II. This autobiographical narrative is much more
than a war story. It describes Walter's early life in pre-war
Germany and tells of his daring escape over the border to West Germany,
immigration to America and his struggles in pursuit of the American
Dream---from the book cover. Friendswood resident
and subject of the book, Walter Zehl, will be on hand to share his story
and answer questions.
