Love story as Casablanca, but in the Cold War, Eagles Over Berlin is taking place during the blockade of Berlin. In 1945, the Americans arrived as enemies in Berlin, but three years later, they became the hope of two and half million Berliners by stopping the Soviet expansionism with the implementation of a large scale airlift. In war-torn Germany, John - American pilot and Esther - holocaust survivor meet and fall in love in the turmoil of history. From the Oval Office, to Stalin's study, through plane crashes in Soviet territory we follow the events of the airlift. Soviet spies and secret negotiations lead to the lifting of the blockade, but the victory tragically separates John and Esther. By a twist of destiny, they will meet again forty years later, in 1989. When the Berlin Wall comes down, they will understand the purpose of their lives.

    "A fascinating and entertaining story" John and Esther fall in love. It sounds like a simple story line but it is not. John, American pilot during the Second World War, and Esther, survivor of the holocaust, meet at a volatile time in history, and their love supports and carries them through difficult times beyond their control. But this is not just a love story. It is a look into a time in history that few people understand. The Second World War was officially over but the Cold War was in its infancy, during which time, the Soviet Army blockaded West Berlin, an attempt to force communism on over two million people. Esther refused John's offer to escape the difficulties of this time and insisted on making the one decision that she could make on her own. Up until that time, everything that had happened to her was out of her control.

Author, Kati Fabian's life had been affected by the Cold War years and her interest in finding the truth about a little talked about subject led her to write Eagles Over Berlin. She has filled the pages of this well written novel with facts that few would know, but softens the pain and fear with a love story that transcends the horror. This is a story of love, devastation, optimism and grief. But in many ways, it is an education. This reviewer better understands the workings of the Cold War and highly recommends Eagles Over Berlin to all those interested in learning more about this period of history. We must again make a stand against terrorism and it is heartening to be reminded that with perseverance, teamwork and love, there will be success.
