Cheops Books LLC has just received a new review for Hitler’s Chief Spy on Amazon. Eric Ridenour left the following statement:

Talk about a captivating read! Right out the gate, Hitler’s Chief Spy gets into the action with a woman attempting to leave the country over a spy love affair, which immediately turns into a kidnapping! So many books you have to get 100 pages in before getting to the action, not so with this one. In fact, this novel is so action-packed, it is almost overwhelming with the volume of information to take in in the first 10% of the book. At first, I was a bit annoyed and confused, as a speed reader, I can take in a book in an afternoon if I choose, not so with this one. Like a hot cup of coffee, Dora Benley makes you slowly sip the information until it cools down. By the time things cool down, you are deep into the story and can’t put it down. Think the classy tuxedo spy of James Bond, but in World War 2 Germany, with a mix of Indiana Jones-style adventure with tales of lies, kidnapping and deceit, forged maps and a race to the final point. Very historically accurate, I was genuinely impressed, it is hard to put down.

The villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly from page to page of this thriller with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head during the lead up to WW2. As far as she is concerned it isn’t Hitler’s Reich. It is Helga’s Reich. She will wrap the hero, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, Churchill’s spy, around her little finger to prove it. Nor does it matter what Edward’s American wife, Dora, says. Hitler’s Chief Spy is the fifth volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

Helga Von Wessel Book Covers:

Helga von Wessel likes to appear on book covers for Cheops Books LLC. So far you can find her on three book covers: Captive at the Berghof: Part 1, Hitler’s Chief Spy, and Unlocking Trinity.

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.

The villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly from page to page of this thriller with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head during the lead up to WW2.

Nor does it matter what Edward’s American wife, Dora, says. Hitler’s Chief Spy is the fifth volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

The Ware’s little girl has been kidnapped by Hitler and forced to live with him at the Berghof. But when Hitler commits suicide in his Berlin Bunker on April 30, 1945, what happens to the child who has been indoctrinated as a Nazi, who has forgotten that English is her native language?

Her biological father, General Lord Edward Ware, must defy Eisenhower’s order to leave Berlin to the Russians. He must get to her before Stalin’s henchwoman does. It becomes a race to Trinity in the wilds of New Mexico in the birth trauma of the Cold War.

Winston Churchill And The British Brexit:

I have no idea why England got itself involved in this nonsense to begin with. It seems inconceivable to an American how you could give away your national sovereignty to foreign powers, especially those that very recently were your enemies in WW2. It makes people in England seem as if they had lost their wits. To say that Brussels is going to make laws for you sounds as if you are saying that England doesn’t exist anymore.

Who won the war anyway? To rid yourself of such a ridiculous situation even if it adversely affects the economy, you should put yourself back on a wartime footing. You made it during WW2. You need to do it again if that is what it takes to save England.

The United States wouldn’t be able to join an organization like the EU. If it did, western Europe minus England would become US territories like American Samoa. They would not have euros. They would have American dollars like people who live in American Samoa. In other words it would be like the Romans. There would be a modern day empire where the Continent had been made part of the American empire. There would certainly be no commands issued from Brussels to Washington!!! America is the one that has military bases in Germany and not the other way around.

England has to decide whether it wants to be a partner with the US as a victor in WW2 or a subject state of the Germans including those in Belgium who are part German themselves.

The Germans are the real enemies, not the Russians. Why do you think the Americans and British were spying on Merkel??? What would Winston Churchill have to say?”

Novels From The Point Of View Of Edward:

Many of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Novels are from the point of view of Dora. If you read Paris Peace Plot, Salisbury Affair, or Captive at the Berghof you will see what I mean. But others are from the point of view of Edward Ware himself such as Hitler’s Chief Spy, Armistice Plot, and Unlocking Trinity.

In Hitler’s Chief Spy the villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly from page to page of this thriller with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head during the lead up to WW2. As far as she is concerned it isn’t Hitler’s Reich. It is Helga’s Reich. She will wrap the hero, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, Churchill’s spy, around her little finger to prove it. Nor does it matter what Edward’s American wife, Dora, says. Hitler’s Chief Spy is the fifth volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

The novel Armistice Plot begins at an archaeological site at Carchemish in 1914 as Edward Ware’s father and Leonard Woolley close down their dig in the face of war. 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 first encounters the vamp who will haunt the rest of his life prowling among the finds, looking for the military maps that his fellow archaeologist T. E.Lawrence is drawing for the British government.

All during the ensuing Great War Edward must fight to keep the maps secret.
Finally during the Battle of Damascus Edward and Lawrence defeat the Turks and make them sue for peace. They will sign the Armistice ending the war. But the vamp, though imprisoned in Damascus, escapes. Edward must chase her down.

There are hints that she is fleeing to join with the Austrian corporal, Adolf Hitler, who is beginning a new movement in Munich. Signs of a new war appear on the horizon though the first has just come to an end with an Armistice that isn’t worth the paper it is written on.

This is an historical thriller about Edward’s 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 Unlocking Trinity the Ware’s little girl has been kidnapped by Hitler and forced to live with him at the Berghof. But when Hitler commits suicide in his Berlin Bunker on April 30, 1945, what happens to the child who has been indoctrinated as a Nazi, who has forgotten that English is her native language?

Her biological father, General Lord Edward Ware, must defy Eisenhower’s order to leave Berlin to the Russians. He must get to her before Stalin’s henchwoman does. It becomes a race to Trinity in the wilds of New Mexico in the birth trauma of the Cold War.

Syrians Are The Modern Phoenicians:

Russia is to blame. Either they gave chemical weapons to the Syrians or they financed it which is the same thing. I don’t think you can call whatever is going on in Syria a “civil war”. Several of these “countries” were created in the wake of WW1, some of them by Churchill and Lawrence at the Cairo Conference in 1921.

They are not real countries and never have been since perhaps ancient times when they were city states and not countries, mostly Phoenician at that. Have you ever heard of Tyre? That was in “ancient Lebanon”. That was the chief state of the Phoenicians, the ones who founded Carthage in North Africa and New Carthage in southern Spain now called Cartegena. That is the heritage of these people who before Mohammed worshipped the blood-thirsty gods of Baal and Tanit.

These were the peoples that Rome fought in the Punic Wars and defeated in Third Punic War from 149 to 146 BC. Rome destroyed what was left of their Phoenician civilization and took the remainder of the 50,000 surviving inhabitants as slaves.

Certainly the Syrians, Phoenicians, etc when they carry on their modern religious wars against each other as different sects of Islam or when they get messed up with the Russians and the Iranians don’t remind me of any modern nation state.

Ancient vs. Modern Violence: Julia: A Romance:

Two Cheops Books LLC editors, Gary Bennet and Kay Bognar will debate the issue of the modern versus ancient violence on Monday at 2PM on the Cheops Books Facebook Page. Gary will present the modern point of view. Kay will argue for the ancient point of view found in the novel Julia: A Romance which is being published on Amazon Kindle on April 9. You are all invited to join the group with prizes available for winners.

Here are the five questions under discussion. The novel concerns the time period of Sulla in the first century B.C., but the discussion will be a little more far ranging than that to prove a point:

1)Compare/Contrast the Battle of the Somme in WW1 with the Battle of Cannae in the Second Punic War. Which was more violent? Which had more lasting implications?
2)Compare/Contrast Sulla’s victory over Athens to Hitler’s move into the Sudetenland.
3)Compare/Contrast Sulla’s victory over Athens to Hitler’s move into Poland in 1939 that precipitated Britain’s declaration of war. Which was more lasting and permanent?
4)Compare/Contrast Titus’s expulsion of the Jews from ancient Israel to the solutions in the current problems in the Middle East. Who acted more serious?
5)What do you think causes this big difference in violence and philosophy of warfare in ancient Rome versus nowadays?
