Tom Morrow’s Nebraska Doppelganger wraps an intriguing work of fiction around true events during World War II.
When the U.S. entered the war in 1941, hundreds of American expatriates, as well as students, tourists, and those visiting relatives were pressed into military service up by Germany, Italy, and Japan. They were forced to fight against the Allies. The alternative was imprisonment.
“Doppelganger" tells the story of John Krauss, a Nebraska teenager who accompanies his German-immigrant father back to Germany for the 1936 Olympics. The Nebraska farm boy remains and enters medical school in Berlin. A few years later, John is drafted into the German army after refusing to join the Nazi party and spy on America.
John is befriended by an officer who gets assigned to the famed Afrika Korps. John becomes a valet to Field Marshall Erwin Rommel. In 1943, when the Germans surrendered to the Allies in North Africa, John and more than 125,000 Germans are sent to the U.S. to be interned in POW camps.
As luck would have it, John is sent to a camp in Clarinda, Iowa, some 150 miles from his family's Nebraska farm. He escapes, and when John finally returns home, there is a surprise waiting for him. John's odyssey is only beginning.
I found the novel engrossing, and was fascinated by the level of little-known World War II history provided.
