To Whom It May Concern:
My book, Never Give Up, which is my Uncle Drolan Chandler’s personal story of combat in the jungles of the Philippines, during WWII, his subsequent capture, internment in Bilibid Prison, O’Donnell and Cabanatuan prisoner of war camps, then transfer to Japan to serve in forced labor in the coal mines, is scheduled to be published this month by BookBaby.
I am, hereby, requesting permission to use your copyright map, entitled Operations in WWII – Western Pacific Operations, Philippine Islands, www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USMC/IV/maps/USMC-IV-16.jpg
This map would be informative for readers in locating the war events I describe in his story. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to include it as a reference source, if you will grant permission.
I appreciate your consideration of my request, as soon as possible, due to planned publication for this month.
