    Overview

    Summary
    Herman's carefree young life came to an abrupt end in the spring of May 1937 when Herman's father along with five other German/American engineers from Ford Motor Co. in Detroit, Michigan accepted Dr. Ferdinand Porsche's offer for a two year contract to help build and furnish what is now the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany. "This could be a once in a lifetime and a golden opportunity for us," Herman's father explained. Shortly after his family moves to Germany, Herman is coerced at age ten under Hitler's regime into the Jungvolk and Hitler Youth. He becomes a German soldier toward the end of WWII, fighting for his life on the deadly Eastern Russian front. Six long years of broken promises, mis-trust, betrayal, brutality, and questions of loyalty face Herman and his family daily. Never has Herman forgotten the sacrifices they made to stay alive.-- Cover.
