This new book by auther Richard Lucas sounds like a good read. I will try to review it when it's available:



Quote from: Casemate Press Release
AXIS SALLY: THE AMERICAN VOICE OF NAZI GERMANY
By Richard Lucas
 
Casemate publishes the first fully-documented biography of the Ohio native and notorious World War II radio propagandist on October 19, 2010.  Now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Borders, Axis Sally: the American Voice of Nazi Germany is based on government documents and ‘lost’ trial transcripts that reveal the complex life of this tragic figure. 
 
( Havertown , PA -- August 13, 2010) – Axis Sally: The American Voice of Nazi Germany by Richard Lucas, the first fully-documented biography of the notorious World War II broadcaster, will be published on October 19, 2010.   One of the most notorious Americans of the twentieth century was a failed Broadway actress turned radio announcer named Mildred Gillars (1900–1988), better known to American GIs as “Axis Sally.” Despite the richness of her life story, there has never been a full-length biography of the ambitious, star-struck Ohio girl who evolved into a reviled disseminator of Nazi propaganda.
 
Her 1949 trial for treason captured the attention and raw emotion of a nation fresh from the horrors of the Second World War. Her 12-year imprisonment and life on parole is a remarkable story of a woman who attempts to rebuild her life in the country she betrayed. 
 
Author Richard Lucas is a graduate of Hamilton College , Clinton , NY and Binghamton University , Binghamton NY .  He is a freelance writer and lifelong shortwave radio enthusiast.  He is a native of Johnson City , NY and currently resides in Short Hills, NJ.
 
The book is published by Casemate, a leading publisher and distributor of history and military books.
