Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author, Rick Atkinson (An Army at Dawn, The Day of Battle) offers another “sneak peek” in our series of videos for the final book in his epic “Liberation Trilogy,” The Guns at Last Light.

Speaking from the Museum’s own Guests of the Third Reich: American POWs in Europe exhibit, Atkinson tells the story of John K. Waters and his connection to General George Patton’s ill-advised raid on the Hammelburg prison camp.

Don’t miss your exclusive opportunity to get The Guns at Last Light on May 8, V-E Day, at The National WWII Museum’s pre-release event, a week before the May 14 public release. This free event includes a book signing and presentation by the author. RSVP now to ensure your spot.

If you cannot join us here for the event, you can still pre-order a signed copy of The Guns at Last Light from the Museum Store. All purchases fund the Museum’s educational mission.
