German-language edition of an account by a fellow US serviceman of Elvis's military service in Germany. Has some rarely seen photos, both black and white and colour. Interesting read.
Operation Elvis; Levy, Alan; Henry Holt and Company; 1960; 1960; n/a; English; Hardback; ; Search abe.com (Wednesday, 16 May 2001)
Original US edition (first published, February 1960, and already at the third printing in March 1960!). Excellent, if all too brief, contemporary account, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, of Elvis's induction and time in the US army. Dust-jacket carries amusing colour cartoon by Dedini, who also provides numerous b/w cartoons throughout the book. One of the few contemporary books about Elvis, and more accurate than most. A must for the collector!
Operation Elvis; Levy, Alan; André Deutsch Limited; 1960; 1960; ; English; Hardback; ; Search abe.com (Wednesday, 1 January 1997)
This is the UK edition of the title. How did Uncle Sam get Elvis into the army? Includes a brief piece on UK pop idol, Terry Dene, whose own national service stint was far less successful. Some amusing cartoons for the time!
Operation Elvis; Levy, Alan; Consul Books; 1960; 1962; none; English; Paperback; ; Search abe.com (Wednesday, 1 January 1997)
How did Uncle Sam get Elvis into the army. Includes some amusing cartoons for the time! Unlike the hardback editions of the book, this UK paperback edition contains eight full-page b/w photos, none of which shows Elvis in uniform!
Private Elvis; Cortez, Diego; FEY Verlags GmbH; 1978; 1978; 3-88361-101-8; English; Paperback; ; Search abe.com (Wednesday, 1 January 1997)
Largely a picture book of Elvis in army and visiting the Munich nightclub, the "Moulin Rouge" (where the photos get really weird), but also includes press-cuttings and some texts in both German and English.

Elvis's life during service. Some unusual photos. Book came with a CD.
Sergeant Presley; Mansfield, Rex and Elisabeth (with Marshal Terrill); ECW Press; 2002; 2002; 1-55022-555-3; English; Paperback; Online Review; Amazon.com Find Elvis Presley book at Amazon.co.uk Search abe.com (Monday, 2 September 2002)
Fair and honest account of Elvis's two "missing" years as a US soldier. Rex Mansfield was inducted on the same day as Elvis, became a friend and spent most of his free time with Elvis, even accompanying him on his visit to Paris. Elisabeth Mansfield was Elisabeth Stefaniak, Elvis's secretary during his stay in Germany. Sometimes amusing, sometimes disturbing, almost always interesting. A useful addition.
The Ultimate Elvis In Munich Book; Roth, Andreas; Andreas Roth; 2004; 2004; 3-00-014671-7; English; Hardback; Online Review; Amazon.com Find Elvis Presley book at Amazon.co.uk Search abe.com (Monday, 10 January 2005)
Beautifully produced book, giving information about the few visits that Elvis made to the German town of Munich during his army service and especially about his "relationship" with actress Vera Tschechowa. Excellently illustrated in black-and-white and colour, including numerous previously unpublished photos (and, for a change in the world of Elvis books, that's a claim that stands up!). Also shows contemporary press cuttings. Very good indeed.
