New Book Highlights the Unseen Side of World War II

New Book Highlights the Unseen Side of World War II MIAMI (April 17, 2017) - Jerry Blanton has been writing since he learned what letters stood for. Now, known for his vast experience writing books, Blanton was approached with a novel suggestion. With an interest in the idea and upon spending a significant amount of time researching the history of World War II, the author penned a powerful historical novel.

"Nightmare Enemy, Dream Friend" chronicles the life of a German medical student who becomes a U-boat captain during World War II. Readers will be captivated as the book begins in a POW camp in Texas where the main character, Luther Weitgucker, has been incarcerated until World War II ends. Questions are answered and drama is heightened as the book flashes back to the beginning of the war.

The author shares a different perspective on the amply documented war, reflecting on what it means to serve and do good during times of trouble, as the book portrays a man who does his best to keep his faith while waging a war he does not believe in.

"Nightmare Enemy, Dream Friend" will appeal to a variety of readers as it capitalizes on action scenes, love interests and unique viewpoints of the Nazi era, while weaving biblical quotes and Christian references into the narrative.
