Feather Merchant by Bernard Duane Enarson I: lovingly presented by his daughter Cheri Lea Duffy ($15.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7851-3, paperback
In the fall of 1941, while the engines of war are being stoked, a young man from Iowa joins the U.S. Marine Corps and enters boot camp. While he is in training, the United States is attacked at Pearl Harbor. The young man is swept up into worldwide events, traveling throughout the Pacific theater as the Americans engage and proceed against the Japanese.
A vivid, firsthand account of war at the ground level, Feather Merchant describes in detail the combat experiences of a young Marine in World War II. From the aftermath of the destruction in Pearl Harbor, to the gruesome carnage and suffering of the Battle of Guadalcanal, the young man deals with the brutality and struggles to maintain his sense of reality and identity. Filled with gorgeous, amazing settings such as Hawaii, New Hebrides, New Zealand, and the Solomon Islands, Feather Merchant delights and horrifies with its detailed accounts of the daily life of a regular U.S. Marine at war.

A lone heroine, the beautiful and courageous Chen Jin-ling, pet-named Silk Tiger, rises up and attempts to bring peace to her country. Assisting her is Captain James Lansing, winner of the Distinguished Service Cross, whose love for Silk Tiger is all-consuming. The two convince Lansing's group commander, Colonel Thompson, to go with them on a dangerous journey to see Chou En-lai and Mao Tse-tung.

"The oldest son of the oldest son," Serge fully expected to take his place eventually as the family patriarch, from his carefully guided youth in East Prussia to the family's prudent immigration to America. But world events were to change his destiny completely.
At the time of World War II, Serge enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps and learns the rudiments of military undercover work. By the late 30's, he's an aeronautical engineer and ready for the real thing--military-industrial espionage at the highest level, in Nazi Germany.
At first the darling of the German High Command, Serge runs afoul of the Gestapo and is forced into perilous escape. But then he has to go back into occupied Europe, because the woman he loves is trapped in a ghetto in Belgium and he cannot let her die.
