Pattern of Circles is a success story, for its author and his country.

Pattern of Circles is a success story, for its author and his country.  John E. Dolibois was born December 4, 1918, in Luxembourg.  His mother died weeks later, and he was raised by an older sister until she left for Akron, Ohio, with her American husband.  In 1931 John came to Akron with his father and thus began a fascinating life journey.

He graduated from Miami University in 1942, in time for service as an Armored Force officer and then in Military Intelligence.  In this latter station he assisted in the interrogation of the Nazi war criminals prior to the Nuremberg trials.  His descriptions of Goering, Doenitz, Ribbentrop, et al. are perceptive, penetrating, and flavored with earthy humor.  These chapters are set against the backdrop of war, the Holocaust, and attendant horrors.

In 1981, after retirement from Miami University as Vice President for University Relations, Dolibois was called by President Ronald Reagan to become U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg.  His appointment came fifty years to the day from his arrival in Akron.  His four years as ambassador are an appropriate chapter of life given to the service of his adopted country.

Mr. Dolibois is the last person still alive (2014) who personally knew the top Nazi leaders like Goering, Schach, and Ley, among many others who were kept in a secret processing center (Project Ashcan) at Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxembourg right after WW2. They were flown to Nuernberg for trial and execution shortly afterward. Mr. Dolibois was a young U.S. Army lieutenant with a command of both German and Luxembourgish (in addition to his adopted English). This is only part of this remarkable man's frank, honest, often shocking, always relevant story. He became a major benefactor of the University of Miami (Ohio) and its university center in Luxembourg (named after him), and served as U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg in the 1980s. My family lived in the same neighborhoods of downtown Luxembourg in the last century, and probably knew his family. His account of Luxembourg is authentic and vibrant. This is a book I plan to keep as a reference, and to re-read more than once.

I knew Mr. Dolibois when I worked at his retirement community in Cincinnati, OH. He was a fascinating conversationalist, and it was always a pleasure talking with him. Always the gentleman, he was highly intelligent and very charming. I bought his book because I was sincerely interested in his life, and he told me it was available cheap on Amazon! A great read about a most unusual and rewarding life. I feel honored to have met him.

Incredible story! Why we want immigrants!

This book is a must read for a Mimi University of Ohio
Student or Alumni. There is a section of the
book that talks about the authour's association
with the captured German High Commmand after WWII. That
is very good reading for any History Buff.

Love this book. I keep giving my copy away. Met John when he spoke to a group of us at the J.W in D.C. years ago and I have known some of the folks he mentioned in this book. What a remarkable story. I asked John if he knew Wild Bill Donovan. He said he had shared a meal with Donovan once.
Very interesting bit of history. Well written too. Felt like an autobiography, but was written by the son. Wonder how that was achieved.
