Harry C. Butcher Birthday

Today is the birthday of Harry C Butcher, the Naval Aide to the Supreme Commander of the Allies, General Dwight D. Eisenhower. The memoir Butcher wrote after the war, My Three Years with Eisenhower, provided the inspiration for my novel, The Torch Betrayal.

In the image above, Butcher is pictured standing behind General Eisenhower as he accepts the German’s unconditional surrender.
