Webmaster note: Joachim Lenk, a German journalist and author, has written a book on the US Army Garrison Ulm/Neu Ulm that includes the air base at Leipheim, the Schweighofen Airfield, the local training areas and the ammo dump at Merklingen. I have not had a chance to review the book yet, but will provide some feedback as soon as I have a copy.

In the meantime, you can review Joachim's website at USGarrison.com (link).
