Sworn To Secrecy - For Life by Charles Joseph Fickey

Sworn to Secrecy - For Life.
This story is reminiscent of both Disney and Kafka, with elements of wonder, surprise improbability, and the bizarre. The hero, a seventeen-year old lad from West Virginia, enters World War II as a clandestine agent, known to only President Roosevelt and his intelligence advisor. He is thoroughly trained in military procedures and German history, geography and language, and almost immediately thrust deep into enemy territory on a secret mission. Within days, he finds himself in the midst of the Battle of Pripet Marsh and, a few weeks later, he comes into close contact with the leaders of both Germany and Russia, as well as their most trusted military advisors. All of these dignitaries see the young man as a hero; they trust him with powerful secrets and send him on missions of increasing complexity, always leading farther away from completion of his first, and most important, mission. Somehow, he evades discovery, collects numerous medals and honors, finally accomplishes his mission, and then lives out the rest of the War performing comparably mundane duties. That%u2019s not the whole story. Read this exciting book to find out the rest!

Very well written, entertaining, and page-turning. This would make a great TV show or miniseries. Fantastic work!
