Armin's exodus from the tyranny and destruction of war-tom Germany to the liberating shores of America is a quintessential story of the 20th century. He regales the reader with riveting recounts of living through the Allied fire bombings that defeated fascist Germany and the dramatic fight for survival in post-apocalyptic Europe. This is an enthralling, entertaining read about an immigrant's first impressions of America, told with a self-effacing and deprecating sense of humor. I heartily recommend the jaunty travails extolled in: From Lederhosen to Jeans: A Sweet and Sour Kraut's Journey to America.John Large, Ph.D.Asst. Professor, University of South FloridaFrom his childhood in war-ravaged Hamburg to success in America, Armin Wendt takes us along on many journeys - including eluding Russian guards behind the Iron Curtain and encountering banditos in Central-America.Anything but the stereotypical "staid German," Wendt describes his adventures lovingly and compassionately, often in a humorous way. Anecdotes abound throughout, making this book a delightful read.Gene Cropsey, Award-Winning Author
