William F. Brown about this book: Set in the closing months of WWII and then the early 1950s, Amongst My Enemies is a story of perseverance, redemption and revenge, and of three very different men set against each other in the closing days of WW II. The first is Mike Randall, a young American aviator whose B-17 crash lands in eastern Germany and finds himself in the frozen hell of a German forced labor battalion. Second is Kapitan Eric Bruckner, a gentleman, an officer, and one of Germany's last surviving U-boat commanders who is trying to keep his crew alive and do what is right despite the insane people he works for. And third, SS Major Heinz Kruger, a stone-cold SS killer. In this WW II spy versus spy action adventure novel, inside an old German U-Boat rusting on the bottom of the Baltic are millions in gold bars, stolen art, and a secret that could tear NATO apart. Mike Randall knows the truth, and when he does speak up, he puts a target on his own forehead, one which the Russians, the West Germans, the U-boat's former Nazi owners, the Israeli Mossad, and even the US government quickly take aim at. In this KGB CIA spy thriller, some want the gold, some want Randall dead, and some want proof that there is a high-ranking spy inside NATO itself. Randall's wants are much simpler in this military political thriller novel. Caught between the Kremlin, spies, killers, and a new, deadly, 4th Reich, he wants his revenge and to satisfy some old debts with a steel-jacketed bullet.
