Historical Characters in FALL EAGLE ONE

A number of real people appear in FALL EAGLE ONE: Churchill, FDR, Hermann Goering, Hitler, George Marshall, and many others. I have portrayed them all as accurately as exhaustive research allowed. Goering actually had a genius IQ and amassed a vast fortune by appropriating state owned industries. He was lazy and became addicted to morphine after being shot in the groin in Munich. Hitler was given to fits of rage, which some historians lay to the massive doses of meth administered by his doctor. The story of FDR's bout of congestive heart failure in the spring of 1944 is documented in many books about the wartime President. I was fortunate to be able to visit the British Cabinet War Rooms in London , allowing me to accurately describe them when Evan Thompson briefed Churchill. Even Siegfried von Rall is based on an actual person: Colonel Siegfried Knemeyer, Goering's Technical Advisor late in the war.

I made good progress this week on my new historical novel, HOLD BACK THE SUN. This story follows two newly activated USN Lieutenants, one a gunnery officer on a 4-stacker destroyer and the other a floatplane pilot on the cruiser U.S.S. MARBLEHEAD. The time is the opening months of the Pacific War in the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies. The heroic battles of the U.S. Asiatic Fleet against overwhelming odds are chronicled. The story has naval surface combat, aerial combat, land battles, intrigue, and romance with English and Dutch women. Target date for publication is October 2012.

My current novel, Fall Eagle One, is available at in paperback or for Kindle at:

Fall Eagle One is available for purchase at for Kindle at $2.99, or in paperback for $14.99.  
The time is 1943, and Nazi Germany is reeling from nightly battering of her cities by the RAF. Catastrophe looms at Stalingrad. Siegfried von Rall, Hermann Göring’s technical advisor, hatches strategic missions to buy time for his country to refine cutting-edge technology into “Victory” weapons.

Two targets galvanize Siegfried’s attention: Soviet hydro plants in the Urals and killing FDR. He chooses aircraft and a team of experts for the missions. Göring fast-tracks detailed planning and training.

In Britain, codebreaker Evan Thompson reads Siegfried’s radio messages but can’t detect his objective. The chilling truth emerges only after an Amerika-Bomber bearing “smart bombs” leaves Norway for the U.S.

Fall Eagle One has aerial combat, trans-Atlantic assassination flights, Eastern Front action, codebreaking at Bletchley Park, intrigue at the highest levels of the German High Command, and fast-paced war-time romance.
