The fifth chapter of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 has been posted on the website in the German-language serialization section. We are serializing the novel chapter by chapter as it is translated. When we get to the last chapter, we will publish a special German edition of part 1 on amazon.com and amazon.de. It will be the first thriller that Cheops Books LLC has ever translated into a foreign language.
We thought it was appropriate. After all the Edward Ware Thrillers at War series of historical thrillers concerns itself mostly with World War 1 and World War 2 and with the British and Americans fighting the Germans first under the Kaiser and then under Hitler. It is a particularly “German” topic about the “German question”. Also the author, Linda Cargill, worked for a German publisher, Cora Verlag, for years turning out thrillers. So it seemed like the novel to pick.
Hitler has found out about Colonel Sir Edward Ware’s secret undercover activities for Winston Churchill, and he’s playing hardball. He kidnaps Thomasina, Edward’s daughter, and won’t give the child back unless Edward and his wife, Dora, hand over the key to world domination – the Lawrence maps. They’d better do something fast before Thomasina truly becomes Hitler’s daughter.
In the future Cheops Books LLC plans to translate the Cherusci Plot into German also. That historical thriller about the Roman era takes place in 9 AD when the Cherusci tribe massacred Caesar Augustus’s best three legions and stopped the progress of the Roman Empire at the Rhine River. They could not progress towards the Elbe River and what is now Hamburg. It is a topic of strong German interest that changed the course of Western Civilization for the past two thousand years.

The German translation of Chapter 4 of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 has been posted today on the appropriate section of the Cheops Books website. It is the next installment in a chapter by chapter publication of the work in the style of such nineteenth century novelists as Charles Dickens. By the end of 2016 we have translated almost half of the historical thriller about the lead up to World War 2 into German. Hitler threatens Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora, Lady Ware, that if they don’t hand over the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, he will kidnap their daughter. When we finish translating all the chapters the suspense novel will be published in German in a separate edition of the work. It will be the first book in a foreign language printed by Cheops Books, LLC. We will feature it on the amazon.de website with a lead in on the author’s page in German.
