Overview:

Playing with the Enemy: A Baseball Prodigy, World War II, and the Long Journey Home : Gene Moore was a country boy who could hit a baseball a country mile. He was so good that the Brooklyn Dodgers came calling. When Gene's baseball career was interrupted by World War II, he joined the U.S. Navy, and in 1944, he found himself on a top-secret mission: to guard German sailors captured from U-505, a submarine carrying an Enigma decoding machine. Stuck with guard duty, Gene taught the enemy how to play baseball. It would be a decision that irrevocably changed his life . . . and maybe our national pastime. Inspired by true events, Playing with the Enemy is the story of a young man's brush with destiny during an extraordinary time in our country's history.
