Two letters are shown written by American soldiers on Adolf Hitler's stationery that historian Andrew Carroll has in Washington. The letters, recently given to Chapman University, include one with a bullet hole in it and one written home by a U.S. soldier on Adolf Hitler's personal stationery. The collection stretches from letters written home by fighters in the French and Indian War to modern-day wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and those by people who are now quite famous, including Sen. John McCain, Gary Trudeau and Kurt Vonnegut.
