Raiber enlisted in the Marine Corps at age 17, and saw action at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, and Saipan with the Second Marine Division. His lifelong interest in the events of WWII led him to investigate a mystery that has perplexed historians for decades: inconsistent historical accounts about German Field Marshall Albert Kesselring and his role in the execution of American prisoners of war. Raiber's research shows that Kesselring's subordinates perjured themselves at Nuremberg to support the field marshal's testimony at his 1947 trial. A few b&w historical photos are included. The book is distributed in the US by Associated University Press.
