Can anyone tell me about Paul Swank. His huge tomb and memorial is at Quillan ( west of Perpignan in the Pyrenees. He was an American who fough with the French during the war. The tomb is erected on the spot where he was killed by the Germans. I would love to know more and why his tomb was built there 50 years after his death.
