Biographical notes:

Paul Deutschman was a foreign correspondent for Life, Newsweek, and The Nation. During World War II, he was stationed in North Africa and kept a diary about the war. Life magazine later published it and it became the first eye witness account of the effects of Allied bombing on civilians. In addition, he wrote for YANK, the U.S. Army Weekly. Deutschman also wrote for popular magazines such as Collier's, Esquire, Harper, and Sports Illustrated. In 1950, he went to Paris to be the Head of Magazine Information for the Marshall Plan, and covered several European countries. In the 1960s, he worked for the Secretary of State as a liaison between the department and national magazines. He wrote one fiction novel titled The Adipose Complex, and was working on a novel about World War II at the time of his death in 2002.
