Column on General Devers

20150807__726402-s300-p1_500The regional history section of the York Daily Record (Pennsylvania) has posted a column about  local researcher Rich Robinson, working on a biography of General Jacob Devers.  Devers, also a resident of York PA, was head of the US Armor force during WW2, Robinson is quoted in the article saying “I would very much like to do him (Devers) justice in view of the way he has been maligned over the years but without making him some kind of one dimensional figure.”   Robinson will serve on a panel of Devers experts as part of a two -day event: “Quiet Streak of Lightning: York’s World War II General Jacob L. Devers.” That program is set for Nov. 6-7 at the York County Heritage Trust.  Renowned World War II historian Dr. Scott Wheeler will lead off the conference, presenting on his book: “Jacob L. Devers: A General’s Life.”  The full column can be read here.
