Humphrey's book hits the streets

Robert E. Humphrey’s book, “Once Upon a Time in War,” is now available. Veterans of the 99th Infantry Division have been eagerly awaiting the book’s publication.

Humphrey presented a program in August at the 59th annual convention. He told of his experiences interviewing and writing the book as well as some of the issues he encountered during the publication process.

Humphrey then read excerpts of the book to the standing-room-only crowd and answered questions.

Additional information about the book, Humphrey’s bio, and reviews are printed in this edition of the Checkerboard.

The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press and is available until Dec. 31 at the discounted price of $17.47 plus shipping. Call 1-800-627-7344 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday, to place an order.

The book also is available from online booksellers and bookstores.

Readers wanting an inscription should contact Humphrey and he will send one to be pasted inside the book. His address is 2244 Swarthmore Dr., Sacramento CA 95825, or e-mail
