I'd like to be surprised but can't imagine that there can be enough new material to justify a book. I know how sensitive one can feel about losing control over research findings but have also found that, in reality, there are few people who are ready for the time consuming and usually unremunerative discipline of writing a serious book, even if they have all sources on a plate.
I see that, having just typed this, that the original poster has already told his story to the Daily Mail (Historian discovered his grandfather captured Nazi Heinrich Himmler | Daily Mail Online)
Is the OP Mr Mannion ?? Would be interesting if you confirm .
If it is Mr Mannion I find the way hes been treated on here rather disappointing actually....
It makes me laugh when people "look" for "new" facts making sure first all the eyewitnesses are dead, and then try to rubbish official contemporary documents and evidence .....
All that needs to be known is there in black and white, ... all the statements are there from the people who were there ...
How can a theory hold water against contemporary information/ documemtation/ photographs ?
If so , ... ALL history is fiction.
Next we will be lead to believe that Himmler was Jesus reborn and was misunderstood .......
When i was living in the latin american Barrio/slums for a decade we had amateur tailors coming the door to take your measurements using nothing more than a piece of rope, or what they had handy that day. So for me i would say this reminds me of the times i had my measurements taken.
No no no smartass I didnt used a skirt....

If that makes us, in the words of Mr. Mac 66, "smart Arses", so be it.
I have been called worse.
I cant see what all the fuss is about really, the guy just asked if anyone had more information, he's not a professional, hes an amateur with a personal connection to Himmler's capture
Its not a secret is it, the story regarding Himmler's capture and death ?
It seems it is a secret and only Mr dubman has the answer...to which we mortals must pay $19.95 (or whatever Amazon charges these days) for a glimpse of.
