Fred Missal has published his latest book “And Yes, We Paid in Full”: an autobiographical reflection on his family’s experience during one of the most difficult chapters of modern human history.

Every man has his own story to tell, yet Fred Missal’s is an extraordinary one. As a young German boy, he experiences his share of relatively normal growing pains, such as bullying and scarlet fever, but his life is dramatically turned around as the war begins. Fred is drafted at the tender age of sixteen and becomes a prisoner of war. Yet he manages to survive the stark conditions, being separated from family, and all the other horrors of war, guided by perhaps the only constant in his life: prayer.

As the war comes to a close, Fred finally finds his freedom, and the family is reunited. Another chapter in his life unfolds, and along with it are new tribulations yet also a trove of new blessings. Finding his place in the workforce. The challenges of navigating the construction industry. Finding the love of his life. The loss of people dear to him. The miracle of birth. Illness and health. Raising his children and welcoming grandchildren. Life continues to be a roller coaster for Fred Missal, but his faith in God gives him the strength to endure it all with a giving heart.

Now in the twilight of his life, Fred shares his compelling story with the world.

Published by Page Publishing, Fred Missal’s engrossing book is a vivid portrait of a German family during the Second World War.
