Playing With the Enemy by Gary W. Moore is a book about Gene Moore, the author's father, whose professional baseball career was interrupted by World War II. The title comes from the elder Moore's time as a guard in a top-secret prisoner of war camp that was holding the crew of a U-boat 505, a captured German submarine.[3] The book was the winner of the 2006 Military Writer's Society of America Book of the Year.[4] Playing with the Enemy is planned to be made into a major motion picture by Academy Award winning producer, Gerald Molen.
