More About Jerry

“Jerry Borrowman is a best selling author of historical fiction and co-authored biography. His “Three Against Hitler” with Rudi Wobbe is a George Washington National Award Winner from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for promoting the cause of freedom. Jerry has given voice to true heroes — Rudi Wobbe, a German boy who stood up against the Third Reich, Joe Banks in “A Distant Prayer” who served on 49 combat missions deep into German territory in a B-17 bomber, only to be shot down and taken prisoner of war, and Colonel Bernard Fisher, USAF, a career Air Force pilot who was awarded the Medal of Honor for Valor Above and Beyond the Call of Duty in Vietnam.”

“Borrowman does a superb job of portraying life, including the values and prejudices of the early twentieth century. He brings a realism to that period that is slower and more innocent than teens experience today, yet the reader is led to an awareness of and learns to care about the hopes and dreams of these soon-to-be-men, who live in a time when automobiles are still new and airplanes are little more than toys…

Jerry’s books are for readers of all ages, men and women. They will inspire you by the great sacrifices made by those who have fought for American freedom.”

Jennie Hansen, Reviewer for Meridian Magazine
