Trivia (5)

Was a war correspondent for "Harper's" magazine during World War II covering the fighting against German forces in Italy when he was hit by shrapnel, and later died of his wounds. Fighting was so fierce at the time of his death that the people around him didn't keep track of the date of his death. The 12 May date was a "best guess" date that is unconfirmed but considered official by the U.S. Army.
"Max Brand" was the most famous of his five pseudonyms.
Estimated that he wrote 25 million words in his career, mostly in novels, short stories and screenplays
He had a weak heart and suffered a heart attack at the early age of 29. Despite this heart condition and already being into middle age, he volunteered for war correspondent duty in WWII. Hit by shrapnel, he asked medics to attend to the younger men first.
Faust's father was a lawyer, land speculator, bank president, and lumber-mill owner in Seattle and in California.
