Even though "VOICES UNDER BERLIN: The Tale of a Monterey Mary" is set in Berlin, veterans of Field Station Rothwesten should also feel themselves right at home. A reviewer on Amazon.com said: "Captures some of the more amusing aspects of trick work in a field station during the Cold War, as well as life in Germany for ASA personnel. This work would be of particular interest to ASA and DLIWC alums."
• From Tim Bazzett, author of "Soldier Boy: At Play in the ASA":
"I served at other field stations in Germany in the 60s, 70s and 80s; and, while I never got to Berlin, there was much here that I could relate to, even though the book is a novel. Shift work, burn bags, treads, ditty-boppers, transcripts, QC-ers, day weenies, and that strange special language of DLI-trained Marys - half Russian, half English. Hill's book is like a jar of Prego - 'it's all in there.' And it's told with a stylistic blend reminiscent of Heller and Hooker and perhaps just a few tantalizing tidbits of Hamlet thrown in for good measure."
"Voices Under Berlin" was selected as The Military Writers' Society of America (MWSA) Novel of the Month for September 2009, and was an award winner at the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival. To learn more about "Voices Under Berlin: The Tale of a Monterey Mary", please click on the banner above.
