F.A.Q.

With World War II veterans dying by the thousands each day, Adam and his research team are currently hard at work creating future books to tell their stories.

 

Due to this race against time, it is impossible for Adam to reply to the hundreds of messages that he receives.

 

Please look over the following "Frequently Asked Questions" as the answer to your question may be found within.

to reveal the answer.

  • How can I meet Adam to get my book signed?

    Adam’s appearance schedule can be found on the events page.

  • Can I send him my book to sign and mail back?

    Because Adam writes from locations all over the world, he is unable to handle the logistics of receiving, signing, and shipping books sent to him. In place of this, he’s made special autographed bookplates available.

     

    Autographed copies of "Spearhead" are available from Premiere Collectibles & the Midtown Scholar Bookstore.

  • I’m from the media/film industry, can I talk with Adam about an interview/film rights?

    Please send any media inquiries to: staff@adammakos.com

    Please send any film inquiries to Will Watkins at ICM.

  • I know a veteran with a great story, can Adam interview him?

    Unfortunately, Adam has his next books in production and a decade’s work ahead of him,
    so he’s unable to conduct new interviews.

  • What is Adam's next book about?

    Adam's latest book Spearhead is now available everywhere books are sold.

     

    Spearhead goes inside an American tank with a gentle giant-turned-tank gunner who’s leading the U.S. Army into Cologne. And it puts you into the boots of the teenage German gunner sent to stop him.

  • Can Adam help me learn more about the veteran in my family?

    To learn more about a veteran in your family, Adam recommends that you access that veteran's personnel file from the National Archives in St. Louis, provided it survived the 1973 fire. Researcher Jackie Ostrowski can help with this task at a reasonable price. She can be reached by email at: stlarchivesaccess@gmail.com

  • Where can I see the Stigler/Brown or Cologne 1945 bonus film?

    The film of Charlie & Franz during their first reunion together is found on the "A Higher Call" book page, under the label "bonus video."

    It appears in the official trailer and in the first of the bonus videos.
