Ankündigung des Autors:
"March 1960, almost 2 years before, Elvis was drafted. At the peak of his professional career, he faced two uncertain

The doubts were etched on his face, in the days of March 1958. His easy smiles were now forced. They would disappear
for a long while after his beloved mother's untimely death in August 1958.

However, in the days of March 1960, his smiles could not have been more genuine. His army days over amidst a flurry of

A photo record of Elvis' journey through 7 days in March 1960 over more than 190 pages."
