Captain Roger M. Baty, USA (ret.) retired from the “University of Redlands in 2002; and, is dedicating himself to two causes: one is compiling oral histories of WW2 veterans; the other is performing Echo Taps with Bertrand Trottier at services for our departed veterans. Dr. Baty, is a former reservist with fourteen years in the National Guard and Army Reserves and member of the American Legion.” Captain Roger M. Baty is the author of Return of the Heroes Part 3 - The Dash to Berlin and Return of the Heroes: A Photo Essay.  He is also the editor of Where Heroes Trained: 736th Medium Tank Battalion.

 

According to the book description of Where Heroes Trained: 736th Medium Tank Battalion, “Where Heroes Trained deals with a secretive and highly unusual Army project in World War II. Not a Manhattan Project, but taken nearly as seriously, this was a most interesting sidelight of armored warfare. Caught up in the project were many unwitting GIs who found themselves whisked off to mysterious training bases, introduced to the most powerful tank in the American arsenal, and drilled in one of the war’s most imaginative battle tactics. This is oral history as it ought to be done: a truly unusual project with lots of photos, maps and illustrations and—best of all—interviews that have been well edited. Baty and Maddox make even the most commonplace memories of home and camp into absorbing reading. The result is a fascinating look at ordinary American GIs caught up in a strange environment, enmeshed in events they barely understand, and determined to carry it through. Best of all, this is no BS!”

According to the book description of Return of the Heroes Part 3 - The Dash to Berlin, “Part 3, The Dash To Berlin-covers our tour through Germany. There are images and commentary beginning in Aachen. In three days our tour took us to Remagen and a cruise ship up the Rhine River, to Weimer and the Buchenwald Memorial, on to Leipzig, Dresden and Berlin. This part includes some of the personal "war stories" veterans shared on the bus. The conclusion of this part is a group of personal narratives with photos which tour participants mailed to me after our return to the U.S.”
