Skip to main content Daniel James Brown. Something went wrong. Please try your request again later. He taught writing at San Jose State University and Stanford before becoming a technical writer and editor. He now writes narrative nonfiction books full time. His primary interest as a writer is in bringing compelling historical events to life vividly and accurately. He and his wife live in the country outside of Seattle, Washington, with an assortment of cats, dogs, chickens, and honeybees.
The races those young men competed in put them in the international spotlight and entangled them in the ideological conflicts that fomented World War II. They raced the Nazi rowers in Berlin in the Olympics and beat them, winning the gold medal as Adolf Hitler watched in frustration. A: The idea for the book walked into this very room, in the form of Judy [Willman], my neighbor. She was reading one of my earlier books to her father, [Joe Rantz] who was under hospice care at her house, in the last couple months of his life. He was interested in that book and he wanted to meet me. So I went down and chatted with him.

I knew I wanted to write this book the day I met Joe Rantz. She invited me down to meet him, and almost from the moment I first sat down next to him and began to listen to his life story I was hooked. The story he told about his experience on the Washington crew was extraordinary, of course, ending as it did with an Olympic gold medal race against a German boat in Nazi Germany, with Hitler looking on. But it was much more than his Olympic experience that drew me in. The things he had overcome in life, the way he had conducted himself in hard times, the way he had developed relationships with his coaches and crewmates were all so astonishing, and all so very admirable, that I knew right away that this was a story that needed to be told. Once you decided you wanted to tell this story, how did you go about researching and writing it? The research for this book took about four years.
