Retired Board Certified podiatric (foot & ankle) surgeon. This is the author's second book. The first book was written about his father who commanded a MASH hospital in WWII which liberated a concentration camp in Austria. This camp was ordered built by Hitler for an American hero, Nazi SS Officer Wernher von Braun, so that von Braun could build missiles to attach England and eventually the USA. INSIDE THE GATES, THE NAZI CONCENTRATION CAMP AT EBENSEE AUSTRIA is about the liberators who freed almost 17,000 Nazi prisoners in May 1945.
