Commemorate The End Of World War 1 Next Year:
Cheops Books LLC two years ago published a special edition of Key to Lawrence to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania on May 7, 1915, one of the events that was to bring America into the war two years later on April 6, 1917. Key to Lawrence Special Edition starts out with the sinking of the ship, the seminal event that made the heroine, Dora Benley, want her revenge on the Germans for killing so many of her friends on the ship. Now next year at the end of 2018 Cheops Books LLC will be bringing out two special editions to commemorate the end of the Great War, or World War 1, one hundred years ago. The first will be Map Plot: the Armistice Edition that recounts the Battle of Damascus, the battle that Lawrence of Arabia and General Allenby won against the Turks to topple the Ottoman Empire and bring on the Armistice in Mesopotamia. The second will be still another edition of Key to Lawrence. It will be called Key to Lawrence Paris Edition to commemorate the Paris Peace Conference that ended the war in which Dora Benley and Lieutenant Edward Ware, not to mention Lawrence of Arabia, were intimately involved.
As Edward peers into the tent at midnight he sees a dark-robed intruder brushing past the figurine of an ancient Hittite king that he and T.E.Lawrence excavated at Carchemish this summer in 1914. Is this a spy sent by the Germans to steal the maps Lawrence is sketching for the British military? Edward can’t foresee that the encounter he will have tonight will draw him into a contest to the death first with the German Kaiser and then with Hitler himself. It will determine the woman he will marry and the woman he will not. It will drive him to the brink of madness in a century gone insane in Map Plot, soon to be brought to you to Cheops Books LLC.
Water rushed into the four, great smoke stacks of the ship as they, too, hit the waves. Tremendous, churning whirlpools sucked victims inside. A few were ejected, blackened with soot. Propellers rose above the maelstrom. The rudder lifted higher than the smoke stacks. The ship’s prow pointed down toward the deep. It looked as if the ship’s nose would hit the sea bed hundreds of feet below. The Lusitania sank in only 18 minutes after being torpedoed on May 7, 1915. Dora Benley vowed revenge on the enemy. Key to Lawrence tracks the beginning of her quest for justice in this special edition of the first volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers At War Series. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Great War, World War 1, and will be brought to you in still another special edition next year. Watch for it on http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org.
