Canadian officer Lt. Colonel Gerald Levenston wrote over 160 wonderfully descriptive letters home to his widowed mother in Toronto during World War 2. Gerald describes setting up the largest hamburger stand in Europe for the Canadian troops, fighting Rommel's men at the Battle of the Kasserine with the 17th/21st Lancers, giving ‘marching orders’ to surrendering Nazi armies in May 1945, and returning 261 priceless Van Gogh paintings to the Kroller-Muller State Museum from an underground vault in Holland. Includes video interviews with Gerald.
