PREFACE, INTRODUCTION OR WHAT- NOT
This isnt a diary, and it isnt a history. It does not pretend to be literary. The purpose of it is to help you remember the places youve been, the things youve seen and sweated out, and the guys youve shared the time with. Just about everybody is mentioned somewhere, but of course I couldnt tell everything about everything. If this booklet enables you better to recontruct your experiences in France, Germany and Austria, and thereby gives you pleasure, it will fulfill all its purpose. Good luck, gentlemen.
