***NOW AVAILABLE ON SALE FOR 30% OFF***My grandfather, Frank Carollo, was a prisoner of war in the infamous POW camp Stalag 17 B during World War II. During these dark days, he managed to keep a diary of his experiences, depicting everyday life within, through beautiful short stories, poetry, and drawings. Now years later, I've taken his accounts, adding background details from friends and family, to create a memoir of hope, love, and survival; a story of one man's life before, during, and after being confined within one of the most notorious of Nazi camps.

Words can not express how sorry I am for what your grandfather went through. The pain, suffering, misery and hopelessness he must have felt. To me, he is a true hero as are all the others who lived through the horrors of that Stalag - not to mention the others. I am glad you are telling your grandfather's story, because it needs to be told.
