My latest, "1961, Sliding Toward Armageddon", is the prequel to "The Allemagne Deception" and the two should be read together as a set. From the first glimmering light of 1961 to its last flickering flame, the fulcrum upon which all the tumult of the Cold War seemed to rotate was Berlin. This historical novel, "1961 - Sliding Toward Armageddon" gave me the opportunity to travel back in time to that city of intrigue, the Berlin of 1961, which to the free peoples of the world symbolized an island of freedom in a sea of tyranny. A year before the Cuban Missile Crisis began, President Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev viewed Berlin as the major battleground of the Cold War --- their Gettysburg, Stalingrad and Waterloo all wrapped into one.
