During the Cold War, a more monumental effort was made by America and her allies to intercept and exploit Russian and communist countries communications. In the mid-1950s a tunnel was built by British MI-6 and the CIA which tapped into a buried communications cable in East Berlin. They successfully intercepted and exploited East European and Russian communist communications for over a year. Suddenly, in 1956 the tunnel was “discovered” by the Russians, denying the allies this exceptionally valuable intelligence source.

His task—build a TOP SECRET tunnel under the River Spree into East Berlin—tap into highly classified communications links between civilian and military leaders in Russia and the Warsaw Pact countries. The knowledge gained from this source will help Amer ...

There is a search for a "homeland" and to find a place where we belong- whether land as in ancestral or land as a piece of this earth that is ours. It gives us "roots" no matter how far away we may be such as on the "mainland" It reads like a noir novel- well researched and well written and filled with the foibles of us humans insisting on doing things our own way. But there is also a quest for something bigger than ourselves here; a search for redemption/salvation however unattainable it may seem to be. There is still a wish, a cry, and a hope to believe that it may be possible.”
