My name is Lisa Frei and I have just written my first book. It’s about my childhood growing up during WW2 in Ismaning, a small village near Munich, in Bavaria, Germany. Well, it was a small village when I was born. Now it is huge. Every time I go there I get lost more often than not. It also tells the stories of my 2 brothers, Shorsh and Toni, fighting on the Russian front and in Northern Finland. A few years ago, when I was a real internet novice, while researching some details for my book, I happened upon a forum where a Mr Weber (Yes, I still remember his name) was asking for information about the German soldiers in Finland, known as the Mountaineers Company. I could have easily answered his question, if only I had known how to join the forum to reply! So here I am a few years later with my own blog. I hope you enjoy looking through it and browsing through the photo galleries (I have only just started, so please be patient, I promise there is more to come) and I have gone to great lengths to ensure that all the information in my book and on this blog are historically accurate. And Mr Weber if you are still out there – their name was Gebirgsjägerregiment 139, 13 Kompanie (Mountaineer Regiment 139, 13th Company). To leave me a comment click on comments just below.
