9781438974293: Lt. Jack Taylor: An American Hero

The story is based on a true story. I worked with Lt. Taylor's cousin on the story line. Jack Taylor joined the ROTC while in college--he became a dentist after graduation and when WW II started he asked to be called up. He went into the OSS (the forrunner of the CIA) and served in Europe, parachuting behind enemy lines and gathering information about German and Italian troop movements and aircraft count. He was captured by the NAZIs towards the end of the war and was placed in Mauthausen Concentration Camp. He was set free by an Army Staff Sergeant just two days before he was due to be shot. This story takes the reader along with Lt. Tayler behind enemy lines. At times you feel as if you were part of his team.

About the Author:

F. Eugene Barber was born on a sharecrop farm in the Midwest at the start of the Great Depression and first attended a rural school with ten other students ranging from the first to the eighth grade. He worked on farms and ranches until joining the Air Force at age seventeen just after graduating from high school. During the Korean War, he was an engine mechanic and Crew Chief on the B-36 atomic bomber. Later, former Staff Sergeant Barber used the GI Bill to earn an AS in Engineering, a BA, and an MBA. Mr. Barber has worked and traveled all around the world-North, South, and Central America, the UK, Europe, French Polynesia, Russia and Russian Siberia, Finland, South Africa, mainland China, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. He and his wife, Yvonne, lived for a time in Yorkshire, England as part of Status of Forces. He was a consultant contractor on a Joint Ops Base. Mr. Barber also worked for two years at the Birk Flight Test Center, Edwards AFB, on the Airborne Laser Program. Soon afterwards, he worked as a consultant contractor for a large defense company in Minnesota on a Navy gun program. He is now with a company at a test site in the Nevada Desert. He and his wife live in Nevada.
