2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 69th arrived in Europe in December 1944 and fought in the Battle of the Bulge, then moved across the Siegfried Line and into Germany. Lipsius was one of the regiment's officers and was behind the rest of the troops planning their movements. While moving through Germany, he encountered one labor camp with Hungarian Jewish women, which a sergeant found and called to his attention. The women were not starving but wanted to be let out of the camp, which was against Lipsius's orders. Lipsius maintains a website about the 69th Division and its activity during World War II

The division had a small firefight to get into the camp, and when they came through the gate, Straba was immediately struck by how emaciated the prisoners were. His captain ordered the cooks to make pancakes for the prisoners, not realizing that they could not handle such rich food. Straba's unit left the next morning, and he did not see the entire camp, although he did encounter one airman who had only been a prisoner for two weeks and was eager to go with them and continue fighting. Straba also saw a number of small slave labor camps and went to Dachau after the war ended
