    1. If ever there was a book that should be made into a movie, this is it! The story of Paul F. Schmidt's family background, life, and times is very fascinating. It will appeal to readers interested in Eastern European history, Chess, and World War II (from an angle I've never seen before), and is a book that I found hard to put down once I started reading it.
