Escape from Berlin: The Diane Jacobs Story
by Frank J. Zanca
The year was 1936 when she first saw Adolf Hitler face to face. His attempt at genocide would ultimately lead to the destruction of a nation and bring about the greatest war the world had ever seen. Young Daisy Gronowski had little choice but to change her identity and leave her family behind, fleeing to England. This is the story of her long and dangerous journey to freedom.
(For the books above right, Tammy Barley provided planning, editorial, and/or ghostwriting assistance. These authors did not participate in the new Soldier Story Program.)
"This is our family's story from a civilian life to an active military life. Keeping the marriage and family together is the best defense in maintaining a strong military. Every family is unique as they begin this "new normal," learning to survive the deployment and aftermath of a life that is hardly recognizable anymore. As much as this is our story, it's also our rehabilitation back into civilian life, returning to a community that has little understanding of what faces the civilian soldier and their family."
“If I can’t be a soldier,
I’ll help soldiers.”
