Using a Tommy Gun?[edit]

Please provide a citation for the assertion that Steinbeck captured ‘German and Italian prisoners using a Tommy Gun.’

Steinbeck’s ‘Once Upon a War’ says categorically that ‘I certainly did not fight.’ War Correspondents in WWII had no military training, were not armed, and took no part in action except to observe.

It seems that this refers to the capture of the Luftwaffe radar station on the island of Ventotene, which Steinbeck describes in a series of articles in ‘Once Upon a War.’ He says nothing about his own participation, although his description of the action seems first hand. 220.253.18.193 (talk) 07:28, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

Not done You haven't said what you want content you want to add to the page. Note that we don't add what we know - we add what we could verify by referencing reliable sources. GirthSummit (blether) 15:47, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Needs citation[edit]

A trivial element of the article, maybe, but is there a citation for "The family farm in Heiligenhaus, Mettmann, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, is still named "Großsteinbeck."?
