Description

Glendon Swarthout was the only child of Fred and Lila (Chubb) Swarthout, a banker and a homemaker.

Glendon Swarthout was the only child of Fred and Lila (Chubb) Swarthout, a banker and a homemaker. Swarthout is a Dutch name; his mother's maiden name was from Yorkshire. Swarthout generally did well in school, especially in English. He was a Michigan high school debate champion. Several other works were sold for films which were never made; these include The Eagle and the Iron Cross (Sam Spiegel, 1968) and The Tin Lizzie Troop (Paul Newman, 1977), as well as a number of movie options, now lapsed, on his many stories.

Condition: Used: Acceptable. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text.

I found the entire premise of the story to be totally ridiculous and unbelievable. I would tell anyone thinking of reading this book to do so only if you don't have anything else to read. Of course with the large selection of Kindle books I'm certain you could find a better book than this.

That wasn't the best title for this unusual story told from the POV of some German soldiers in a desert POW camp The Eagle and the Iron Cross is another forgotten masterpiece by the late Arizona novelist Glendon Swarthout. Its film rights have been gathering dust in late producer's Sam Spiegel's company, now part of Sony/Columbia Pictures.

THE SHOOTIST is John Bernard Books, a man of principle and the only surviving gunfighter in a vanishing American West.

The nail biters, thumb suckers and teeth grinders at the Box Canyon Boys Camp were called the Bedwetters. They were the cast-away offspring of parents who were busy traveling, being divorced, remarrying and garnering fortunes. THE SHOOTIST is John Bernard Books, a man of principle and the only surviving gunfighter in a vanishing American West. He rides into El Paso in the year 1901, on the day Queen Victoria died, there to be told by a doctor that he must soon confront the greatest shootist of all: Death himself. In such a showdown, against such an antagonist, he cannot win.

All of the white men are invariable ugly (and the . Army personnel are morally stunted). After one of the Nazi youths is murdered by the vigilantes, the other is saved not by the cavalry but the Indians who come riding up. However, the remaining Nazi goes on a vendetta after the vigilantes and the novel's climax is both spectacular and fiery. In a final irony, the last Nazi makes his way back to the prison camp because he can't stand the prejudice he encounters everywhere, and the story ends in bloody tragedy triggered by a psychotic .

Good premise but turned out shallow and boring. When I first saw the summary of this book I thought "wow what a great idea. A POW book written about German POWs in America. Now that's a subject you don't read about every day." I hoped to gain some real insight to the life of a German POW in Arizona...but not much and what was there appears as pure speculation. A missed opportunity I thought.. If you want to read about the plight of the Indians in '40s America or about a group of racist bigoted white men, then go ahead. If you want some insight into German POWs and some real historical remembrance...keep looking, and let me know what you find.

Strong, thoughtful, with glints of comedy and tragedy, this is a novel full of unexpected encounters, the story of some German POWs, interned in Arizona at the end of WWII, who try to escape with the help of nearby Indians and their own fantasies of western adventure from their childhood devotion to Karl May's stories. A ripe subject for a story well told.

Although fiction, it is based on factual history. Extremely interesting that German prisoners were kept in the United States during World War II. Gave an interesting history of a camp in Arizona. The prisoners were lightly guarded as they had no where to go in the desert. An interesting history of Native Americans also.

Read only if you're out of books on your Kindle and the entire Amazon website is down preventing you from downloading something better. Even then I'd go looking for a paperback. I found the entire premise of the story to be totally ridiculous and unbelievable. I would tell anyone thinking of reading this book to do so only if you don't have anything else to read.

Of course with the large selection of Kindle books I'm certain you could find a better book than this.
