In the new year Edward Ware Thrillers At War, an imprint of Cheops Books LLC, will publish Hitler’s Agent by Dora Benley. The villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly across the cover of this book with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head. As far as she is concerned it isn’t Hitler’s Reich. It is Helga’s Reich. She will wrap Edward around her little finger to prove it.

Dora isn’t sure she is cut out for this life of intrigue against Hitler and his chiefest spy, Helga von Wessel, who turns out to be Edward’s mistress and the mother of his bastard son, Leopold. After all, as the only daughter of a Robber Baron from Pittsburgh, she is used to having things her own way. The conflict heats up between Dora and her husband, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, and they are headed for a splashy divorce that makes headlines around the world just at the moment when the globe is poised on the brink of war.

No Third International Third Reich THIRD TERM

The Third International was an organization sponsored by the Soviet Union to promote international revolution. The Third Reich was ruled by Hitler. The Third Term was what FDR was seeking in 1940. It was a pretty powerful protest and pretty serious too all for one little political pin worn by those who supported Republican candidate Wendell Willkie. He was the “Dark Horse Candidate” who gave his name to the political thriller, the alternative history thriller, being published by Cheops Books LLC tomorrow on Election Day 2016.

Oddly enough Election 2016 has odd parallels to the election in 1940. The Clintons are also seeking a third term just as FDR did. The only difference is that in 1940 it was permitted by law and left up to the judgement of the candidate. Since World War 2 it has been outlawed.

Other odd parallels include the fact that the Republican delegation in Philadelphia that nominated Willkie at first wanted to nominate a woman named Dorothy Detzer from Pittsburgh for President. She was a female Dewey who wanted peace at any cost. (She may have been the inspiration for the famous Star Trek episode). In addition Wendell Willkie was a businessman with no previous political experience, just like Donald Trump.

At 1PM Pacific tomorrow or 2PM Mountain time we will hold the final debate between the two candidates for President of the United States during the election of 1940, FDR and Wendell Willkie. The election of 1940 forms the backdrop of the alternative history thriller, Dark Horse, which is being published on Amazon Kindle on Election Day, November 8. Attend to the debate and vote for the winner yourself:

1)If Chancellor Adolf Hitler asked you as President of the United States would you send troops to help him invade Russia?
2)Would you give former British PM Winston Churchill asylum in the United States? How about the British Navy?
3)What would you do if Adolf Hitler offered you a trade deal with Nazi Germany that was too good to refuse?
4)What do you think of the popular 1940 election pin: No Third International Third Reich Third Term?
5)Mr. President, do you think that running for a third term might set a dangerous precedent for the future?

On November 8 vote for President on the Cheops Books Events Page. But instead of Trump or Clinton your choice will be FDR or Wendell Willkie, the candidates in the 1940 election at the beginning of World War 2.
 
Here is one of the questions that will be asked of the candidates in a last minute fourth debate before the voting takes place. Remember that in 1940 America was still neutral: What would you do if Adolf Hitler offered you a trade deal with Nazi Germany that was too good to refuse?
