Captured by the Enemy is a book that retraces the steps of WWII POW Carl Leroy Good. It was written so that his amazing story could be shared along with the WWII history that went with it. Through interviews, memoirs, division reports, WWII records and books, and lots of research, this book takes you for a ride in Carl’s jeep as they move across North Africa and into Sicily. When Carl is captured in Sicily, his life is changed forever and the first two chapters deal with that change as he tries to readjust to normal life. Unfortunately, life can never be the same as he returns to the war in his dreams.
Author, Crystal Aceves, is currently looking for teachers (3rd grade to post high school) who would be interested in reading a free Kindle version of Captured by the Enemy. Carl would have been 96 years old on July 3, 2015. Therefore, in his honor, this book can be downloaded FREE from Amazon Kindle for these three days only–July 3, 2015-July 5, 2015!
