The historical novel "Eagles Over Berlin - Flight for Love and Freedom" attired the attention of Deepa Kandaswamy, award-winning writer, columnist and author in India. Her review of the book was published in Windows and Aisles, the inflight magazine of Paramount Airways.
The year is 1989. The cold war is over and the political future of Eastern Europe is uncertain. Will there be chaos, bloodshed or a smooth transition to democracy? John Carpenter, a world war veteran is sent as an observer to Germany. As John flies from the US into Germany, the reader is transported back in time, forty years to be exact, to the Germany of 1949. Through the eyes of John Carpenter, then a young fighter pilot and Esther Kohlberg, a Russian Jew who survived the concentration camp at Treblinka, we are shown how in post war Germany, the people of West Berlin played a crucial role in determining the borders of the Soviet Union. John and Esther fall in love but are they able to marry?
The author, Kati Fabian is a Hungarian refugee whose family escaped to the US during the Cold War. She writes with passion and knowledge that stems from personal experience. This gives her book a sense of authenticity.
From the White House to Stalin's study at the Kremlin, from the ravages of post war Germany to the streets of Paris, Fabian spins a story of intrigue, highlighting a very important period in world history, which determined the border of the Soviet Union. While most of us may be familiar with the events and drama when the Berlin wall came down, not many of us are aware of the politics and events that led up to the division of Germany into East Germany and West Germany. This is a notable book in the genre of historical romance.
"It is a great distinction for me and my book," said the author, Kati Fabian. "The novel dedicated to a glorious period in aviation history found its place in the skies. Thank you Deepa!"
