In this startling candid and poignant memoir, the legendary
Emmy Award-winning star of The Young and The
Restless, America's #1 soap opera, chronicles his
amazing life, from his birth in World War II Germany to his
arrival in America to his rise to humanitarian and daytime
superstar for the past thirty-five years.
For nearly four decades, fans have welcomed the star of
television’s number-one daytime show, The Young and the
Restless, into their living rooms. While they’ve come
to know and love the suave Victor Newman, few truly know the
man behind the character, the supremely talented Eric
Braeden. I'll Be Damned is his story—a startling
and uplifting true tale of war, deprivation, determination,
fame, and social commitment that spans from Nazi Germany to
Braeden’s journey from a hospital basement in Kiel to the
soundstages of Los Angeles has taught him more about joy,
heartbreak, fear, dignity, loss, love, loneliness,
exhilaration, courage, persecution, and profound
responsibility to the global community than he could have
hoped to learn in several lifetimes. Growing up in the years
after Germany’s defeat, Braeden knew very little about the
atrocities of his parents’ generation, until he arrived in
America as a teenager—a discovery that horrified and
transformed him. Trying to redress the wrongs of his
homeland, he has dedicated his life to humanitarian
work—even forming the German American Culture
Society—working for decades to show the world that what we
share as humans is far more important than what separates us
from one another.
Told with openness, candor, humor, heart, and occasional raw
vulnerability, I’ll Be Damned reveals a man
committed to making the world a better, more loving place.
Filled with sixteen pages of photos from his decorated life
and career, I’ll Be Damned will be a treasured
keepsake for Y&R fans, and is an inspiring
testament to the goodness within us all.
