Gerold Frank - book author
Gerold Frank was an American author and ghostwriter. He wrote several celebrity memoirs and was considered a pioneer of the "as told to" form of (auto)biography. His two best-known books, however, are The Boston Strangler (1966), which was adapted as the 1968 movie starring Tony Curtis and Henry Fonda, and An American Death (1972), about the assassination of Martin Luther King.
Gerold Frank is the author of books: U.S.S. Seawolf: Submarine Raider of the Pacific, The Boston Strangler, Judy, The Deed, Zsa Zsa Gabor: My Story, An American Death, Judy: Judy Garland, War in the South Pacific: Out in the Boondocks, U.S. Marines Tell Their Stories, I'll Cry Tomorrow, War in the South Pacific: Out in the Boondocks Marines in Action in the Pacific
The most bizarre series of murders since Jack the Ripper triggered the greatest man-hunt in the annals of modern crime for Albert deSalvo, brutal sexual psychopath, who murdered thirteen women and held a city in the icy grip of terror for eighteen months.
The stories provide the reader with an intimate view of war at the frontlines (on the ground or in the sky as a Marine aviator), with the Marines facing a determined enemy who would die rather than surrender.
The stories of these brave young men vividly portray the horrors of war as well as serve as a lasting reminder of the heroism displayed by these men.
