Part Tuesdays with Morrie, part Field of Dreams?a true American story of World War II and redemption

Driven by word of mouth and the author's heroic efforts to tell the world his father's story, Playing with the Enemy was a surprise hardcover hit for its independent publisher. Gary Moore's book about his father?a baseball phenom whose future in the majors was cut short by World War II and a fateful occurrence during a top secret mission for the U.S. Navy?is a warm-hearted memoir of faded dreams and new hope that is destined for the bestseller lists. Filled with memorable characters from an extraordinary time in our country's history, it is a truly redemptive story that will be read and reread for generations to come.

    This book was recommended to me by a friend on FaceBook. Don't be put off by the baseball theme. It is a wonderful book combining the Second World War and a small town America thread. Don't hesitate, go out and buy it !!
