|About the Book|
Children is a warm and inspiring true story about a young Air
Force Navigator who completed twenty-nine bombing missions over enemy
territory in World War II. His B-17 Bomber was shot down during his 29th
mission over Innsbruck, Austria. He and his crew had to bail out of their
firey casket and were captured. His early background as an immigrant
family member is briefly illustrated through the patriotic behaviour and
experiences of his parents and siblings.
The story begins as the Author's B-17 Bomber, ABLE ONE, takes off for the last time to lead an airborne armada of sixty-four bombers to destroy a high priority target. From there, the story graphically relates his parachute jump, his capture, interrogation, solitary confinement, and narrow escape during delivery to Stalag Luft III, a German POW camp, for the 'duration'. Here he describes the trials and tribulations of POW life, the physical and psychological hardships endured, and a brutal forced march across the icy Silesian tundra east of Berlin.
The book is an easy reading, page turning, inspirational adventure written for posterity who must value the elusive American Dream by protecting it and insuring its existence for all generations to come. Most of the narrative is gripping and thought provoking, but the Author did find some pages where he relieved the tension with heart-warming and amusing anecdotes.
Listen My Children is a six month chronical that details the Author's last bombing raid over Nazi Germany. It seats the reader right next to the Author as they fly down the bomb run over the snow covered Alps. It continues to hand guide the reader through a number of emotional knot holes such as a parachute drop, the drama of capture, the psychological effects of interrogation and solitary confinement, prison life, a forced march through the worst blizzard in German history, the revitalization of lost hope, the daring rescue by General George Patton and his Third Army, and finally a well deserved "dream come true" weekend in Paris.
But, best of all, you will smile as you turn to the last page
of this gripping novel.

|More About the Author|
An Open Letter To Posterity * * * * From the Author: Listen My Children is a warm and true narative that lifts the reader to loftier levels of consciousness with regard to understanding the basic concepts of The American Dream.
Every dreamer may sow a different garden, but all the dreams are harvested within a common framework of Freedom, Liberty, and Brotherly Love.
Each generation has a duty to preserve this inheritance, and must promise to pass it on as an Irreplaceable Treasure. I felt this obligation early in life, when I was just a kid. My fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Schoonover, had read a very famous poem to the class, Flanders Field, by John McCrae. I love every word of that poem, especially the re-arranged phrases: "We are the dead. To you we throw the torch. Be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die we shall not sleep."
Read my book and see if I kept my promise.
