Hi Mr. Hiatt,

I read your page "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa" and at the bottom is a link for the 6 part interview of E.B. Sledge by Studs Terkel. However, the link is dead.

I did find the link and thought you may want to have your link redirected: http://studsterkel.matrix.msu.edu/results.php?keywords=E.+B.+Sledge&startdate=&enddate=&title=&summary=&nameI=&gallery=

I just finished the book and I found it most interesting. I have been interested in WWII and over the years have learned a lot about it but reading Mr. Sledge's own written words makes it more real. I look forward to listening to the interviews.
