This isn’t a diary, and it isn’t a history. It does not pretend to be literary. The purpose of it is to help you remember the places you’ve been, the things you’ve seen and sweated out, and the guys you’ve shared the time with. Just about everybody is mentioned somewhere, but of course I couldn’t tell everything about everything. If this booklet enables you better to recontruct your experiences in France, Germany and Austria, and thereby gives you pleasure, it will fulfill all its purpose. Good luck, gentlemen.
