This is the story of Ira “Teen” Palm, a soldier in World War II, from Mount Vernon, NY, through the European Theater of World War II, to his acquisition of a pistol engraved with Hitler’s initials as he stormed Hitler’s Munich apartment in a covert operation. The story of the man and the pistol has never been told—and might just write a new chapter in history.
