After her grandparents, Harold W. and Ellen Dwyer, received a telegram stating that their son-2nd Lt. Stanley Dwyer-had become MIA over Austria on May 10, 1944, they began a relentless search. Left with only unanswered, nagging questions, they endured a lifelong private grief. Years later, one question would rekindle the search which, in turn, led Kay and her father, Harold E.

In their quest to understand Stanley's fate, Kay and Harold developed friendships, visited with eyewitnesses, stood on hallowed ground, and observed the dedicated work of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command. In her poignant narrative, Kay details how clues salvaged in the charred rubble of a fi re revealed the essence of Stanley- almost forgotten World War II hero.

Holocaust survivor, Anita Dittman, was just a little girl when the winds of Nazism and Hitler's coming Holocaust began to blow through Germany. Raised by her Jewish mother, she came to believe that Jesus was her Messiah at 8 years of age. By the time she was 10, the war had begun. In this episode, Anita Dittman sits down with Brother Craig and shares her testimony and her new book, Trapped in Hitler’s Hell; the true account of Holocaust horror but also of God's miraculous mercy on a young girl who spent her teenage years desperately fighting for survival yet learning to trust in the One she had come to love. A Jewish believer since the age of seven, today Anita speaks to many churches and groups about her experiences during World War II in Germany. Anita states “Since my arrival in America in 1946, it has been my dream and prayer to share with others the glorious miracles the Lord performed during my twelve and a half years of persecution under the Nazi regime.” You can learn more about Anita at http://hitlershell.com/. Trapped in Hitler’s Hell is a powerful story of hope, survival and God's miracles! So, join the conversation and share it with a friend.
Agathe von Kampen talks about her non-fiction book "The Chocolate Bar." About "The Chocolate Bar": With no point of reference for a life of "normalcy," seeking acceptance and security in a country not accommodating to immigrants, the author relied only on survival instincts, leading to her years of co-dependency, self-doubt, and utter despondency. She finds herself seeking refuge in controlling religious factions and abusive relationships. This life struggle reminds her constantly of her experiences in WWII where she spent her first six years on the front lines in Russia and as a refugee in Hitler's Germany. Her lullabies were the sounds of gunfire and exploding bombs. Her arrival at Ellis Island was promised to be the beginning of freedom; instead, it was only the continuation of abuse and control—intimate and personal relationships of psychological warfare. This is a compelling account of life as it was back "then" and how this child of war endured as she did, blossoming into a young woman, in a new land called America. A life's journey, as told by the author with such honesty, innocence, joy, humor, lessons and revealing horrors and sins; is it any wonder how this broken soul did in fact, survive.
Following the success of Ian Vernon's second feature, the award-winning comedy "Best Little Whorehouse in Rochdale," he followed up with a drama, a story about World War II called "The War I Knew." This character driven piece set in the midst of war involves an 18-year-old solider finding himself the lone survivor of one battle before running into a ragtag group of fellow soldiers. they end up capturing an SS officer that further tests the relationship between the new comrades as they slowly find their way toward home.
The aces of Germany's Luftwaffe were the highest scoring fighter pilots of World War II. Despite flying and fighting in support of one of the most evil and despotic governments to darken the face of planet Earth, the "Experten" of the Luftwaffe had over 100 pilots who each shot down over 100 enemy aircraft in combat. Two actually scored more than 300 kills, a record which will never be matched. By comparison, the top aces of the Western Allies and Soviet Union only had a handful of pilots with more than 30 kills. And despite the evil and toxic leadership of Adolph Hitler and Herman Goring, these were men who retained their personal honor and the respect of their enemy peers.These were men who truly did fight from the first day of World War II, to the last one in Europe on VE Day.
To learn moe about the fighter aces of the Luftwaffe, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) writer Colin Heaton, who has spent the last three decades personally interviewing many of the top surviving German aces of World War II.

Listeners are encouraged to call in to offer questions and opinions, on what will be a fine hour talking about some of the finest pilots that have ever lived.
