Illinois Connection

My family has always lived in Chicago since they emigrated from Europe. I was born in the Chicago suburbs and spent many years growing up in Missouri. I graduated with a BA in History from the Missouri University of Science and Technology and then returned to the Chicago area. My military books have focused on my Chicago relatives who served in World War I and World War II.
