"Will you stop that!"

 As I said before, today and Friday I will be talking about characters from two separate books. Title reveals will come later, for now they shall be known as the POW book and the Airmen book.

 Today I am doing the characters from the POW book. This is just an overview. No real detail. Not yet.I'm also just doing the three who have view points in the book.

 Starting with Tommy.

 Petty Officer 1st Class Thomas Haines.
 Tommy is serving in the Navy before he is "picked" to serve the war at a POW camp. Tommy isn't wild about the idea, but he is given little choice in the matter.
 Tommy is a pick pocket, but also one of the best officers in the Navy. He keeps to himself a lot but is well liked by the men under him. When not fighting battles he will pick their pockets just to keep things interesting and keep them on their feet.
 Somewhat blunt, and with little sense of humor, Tommy isn't prepared for his time at the POW camp. But he's more than willing to annoy the Nazis and disrupt their operations.

 Zachary (Zack) Parker.
 A Squadron Leader in the British Air Force before he was sent to the camp, Zack is a Canadian with a sense of humor and a dislike of the cold. Few things get to Zack. He's easy going and enjoys his work in the camp. He enjoys it so much he not only goes out of his way to make life difficult for the Nazis, he goes through the same amount of work for the men in his unit.

 Rudy Fritz
 I'm very fond of Rudy, and the best way to explain him is to use a line from the book.
 But if I had to use one word it would be "Done." He's done with the war, the Nazis, Zack...humans in general. Rudy isn't a people person. But he's loyal, you know, to the side he's not supposed to be loyal to.
Rudy Fritz, Oberleutant. Former pilot in the Luftwaffe. Moved to POW guard as part of his “promotion”. Traitor to Hitler, code name Hook,

 Rudy works for the men who came up with the POW camp operation.

 And there you have them. The three main characters.

 And now I leave you with this, so you have an idea of what the book is about.

 The camp is not a typical POW camp. Built to hold the best officers in the allied armies, it is escape proof. Once in, there is no way out.
At least that is what the POW's let the Germans believe.
 TADA! This will possibly be the next book I get ready for publication.

 I leave you with a Tangled quote.

  1. Oh my goodness, this sounds like a great story. It sounds funny, but since it's a WWII story, I'm sure it will be painful, too. (Like The Great Escape.)

  2. Oooh, intriguing! You're very good at getting me to want to read outside my "normal" genre, Jack. :) Definitely getting a "Great Escape" vibe... but possibly with more sneaky-humor to it?

  3. This sounds so good, makes me think of a 'Great Escape" too. Which I love immensely.
