Whatever happened to SS General Kammler after WWII?

In 2016, I wrote my first historical novel. This was available online as a blog and then published as a paperback.  More recently, I renewed this book called The Seeds and the updated version is now available on Amazon.

What is this book about?    A brief summary is below:

The Seeds asks the question: “Whatever happened to SS General Hans Kammler?”

After World War II, a number of high-ranking officers fled to places like Argentina. This question seemed to be of great interest to my blog readers. Some readers wrote emails that they knew where General Kammler had lived. One even said the General was an uncle who was elderly and had escaped prosecution.

General Kammler, as portrayed in this book, is entirely fiction. However, the accounts of him, are based on historical facts.   From 1944, General Kammler was head of advanced weapons development in Nazi Germany, including the Me-262 jets, the V-2 rockets and perhaps even the exotic Bell Project. The enormous interest in General Kammler led me to explore the thoughts of where he might be hiding and exciting portrayal of him in The Seeds novel evolved.

Locations as described in this novel, such as the World Seed Vault in Norway…sometimes referred to as the “Doomsday Seed Vault”… are actual places that are active today.  For many readers, other locations, people and culture of the Middle East are generally not understood by people around the world. The story involvement in the Middle East only increases the mystery behind the writing of this historical fiction.    Link to The Seeds 


N.W. Boyer…A Year of Writing in 2017

This year has been an exciting one for me.  I have had the opportunity to interview many people for my books and actually seeing the books go to print.  Today I would like to share with you my 2017 books that followed my books for children in previous years.

(The links are in blue.)

One of my most recent books, SPENCER’S MILL, is fiction set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  It is a cast of characters with an exciting plot that incorporates the history of the decline and failure of mill industries in North Carolina and Virginia when those businesses went to other countries around the world, leaving people without jobs.  It is the story of their strength to carry on and find enriched lives for themselves.

OLD TIMERS OF THE BLUE RIDGE

Old Timers of the Blue Ridge is a series of interviews with people who have relatives that go back to the Civil War.  The stories they shared are interesting reading and gives insight into the cultures of the mountain people.  They tell of what it was like to grow up in the Blue Ridge…their joys and sorrows.

CIVIL WAR RE-ENACTMENTS   This book, North and South at the Blue Ridge Mountains, gives a short overview of the Civil War and the leaders from both sides. It explains the Reenactment that takes place yearly in October in the mountains of Virginia, near Ararat, VA.  I included a large selection of photographs of the reenactment which gives a beautiful description of this event. Men and women dress the part of the period. The main goal of the Civil War Reenactors is to not forget the history of our country.

THE SEEDS       This novel originated from a post on my blog that I wrote in 2010 on Boyer Writes  It was on SS General Hans Kammler and asked the question: “Whatever happened to Gen.Kammler?”  After World War II, a number of high-ranking officers fled to places like Argentina. This question seemed to be of great interest to my readers. Some readers wrote emails that they knew where General Kammler had lived. One even said the General was an uncle who was elderly and had escaped prosecution. General Kammler, as portrayed in this book is entirely fiction. The accounts of him, however, are based on historical facts. General Kammler, was in fact from 1944, head of advanced weapons development in Nazi Germany, including the Me-262 jets, the V-2 rockets and perhaps even the exotic Bell Project. The enormous interest in General Kammler led me to explore the thoughts of where he might be hiding and thus, this novel evolved. All characters are fictional, but many of the places described in the novel, as the World Seed Vault in Norway, sometimes referred to as the “Doomsday Seed Vault” are actual places.

I look forward to 2018 when I plan to complete a Memoirs Book called MY STORY.  I will begin with as early as I can remember in my childhood.nancy as a babybw 6x9

My remembrances of my days in boarding school and the courage that I found in my faith in Christ during years of adult hardship will be an honest and open account.  My family history and doors that opened for me to travel the world as a Christian teacher and missionary will also be part of the story.  The joy that I found when God brought into my life the husband I have loved for over 35 years is a part of “waiting for God” to do wondrous things that we know not of.  Looking back I know that the things that happened to me and around me were often most extraordinary.

It is obvious to me that everyone has a story to tell about their life.  As I have had the opportunity in the books mentioned above to share many stories told to me by others, it is time to write about my own life.

Merry Christmas to all my readers and to all a wonderful NEW YEAR!

THE SEEDS, a historical fiction novel by N.W.Boyer

 THE SEEDS  originated from a blog that I have written for a number of years called Boyer Writes. One post on World War II and the Nazis, who fled to Argentina and other places, seemed to be of great interest to my readers. I was amazed that one particular post called What Happened to General Hans Kammler? received hits every day for years. Some readers wrote me that they knew where General Kammler had lived or that he was an uncle who was elderly and had escaped prosecution. Readers even started to make comments back and forth to one another because they were certain that they knew the answer to the question of the General’s whereabouts.
Who was General Hans Kammler?
General Kammler, as portrayed in this book is entirely fiction. The accounts of him, based on historical facts is that Kammler, from 1944, was head of advanced weapons development in Nazi Germany, including the Me-262 jets, the V-2 rockets and perhaps even the exotic Bell Project.
This fascination about General Kammler also led me to explore the thoughts of where he might be hiding and thus, this novel evolved.
First, I gave it birth online with the help of pictures and videos found on the web. Many of the places described in the novel, as the World Seed Vault in Norway, sometimes referred to as the “Doomsday Seed Vault” or the people, places and cultures of the Middle East, are generally not known or understood by other parts of the world. This only increased the mystery behind the writing.

I hope you will follow or return often to this blog site to see what other books  I have written.   Thank you for reading.
