Biographical Sketch

Theodore Reed Fehrenbach was born January 12, 1925, in San Benito, TX. He received a B. A. from Princeton University in 1947 and married Lillian Breetz in 1951. At the early age of seven or eight he wanted to write, and he was an avid reader of everything from Edgar Rice Burroughs in pulp to historical novels. He served in both World War II and Korea. His war books recorded and tried to explain events in which he took some part. Even though he wrote for civilians, the books had a greater impact on soldiers. In addition to being a free-lance writer, he worked as a columnist and editorial writer for SanAntonio newspapers. Fehrenbach died in 2013.
