Synopsis: "Good Morning--But the Nightmares Never End" is one combat soldier's experience as an infantryman on the front lines of World War II Europe, as a prisoner of war in a German work camp, then as a prisoner of another sort in a Russian detention camp and as a displaced, disillusioned veteran after the war's end. This is author Charlie Dukes' own story of his perilous, horrific and heart-breaking journey, but one that was also, ultimately, triumphant.
About the Author: Charlie Dukes (Co. L, 413th Inf., 104th Timberwolf Div.) was one of the last documented World War II prisoners of war (POW) to be repatriated at the end of the war. He reached Allied lines at the Elbe River on May 27, 1945, some 20 days after the official end of the war and after escaping from a Russian-controlled POW camp at Luckenwalde, Germany. After his discharge from the Army, Dukes finished college and married his college sweetheart, Gracie Schwab, and helped raise their family of two boys and two girls in his native Georgetown, Illinois. Now retired from banking and his own business ventures, this combat veteran and former POW spends his time carrying his message to students in area schools as a "living link to history." Emphasizing freedom and self-discipline, he speaks about his experiences, beliefs and convictions, cautioning young people to guard their freedoms zealously.
