Overview

Personal History of Richard Heinemann (as told to his son, Richard T. Heinemann)

From the book's Foreword:

The following narrative, written in the first person, is the autobiography of my father, Richard Heinemann. As a boy I was fascinated by the stories he would tell about his childhood in Germany, the circumstances of his coming to the United States and the subsequent events in his life. To me, they were as exciting and interesting as any novel. The big difference was that Dad was relating facts, not fiction.

… My hope is that readers in general, and his descendants in particular, will enjoy this retelling of my father’s story, and come to appreciate the events that made up his life—the joys, sorrows, hardships, dangers and triumphs.

—Richard T. Heinemann
