Field Station Augsburg

Even though the SIGINT spy novel "Voices Under Berlin: The Tale of a Monterey Mary" is set in Berlin, veterans of Field Station Augsburg should also feel themselves right at home. Many of the things in the novel are part of the "Glossary of MI Terms" on the Field Station Augsburg website. A reviewer on 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" is the winner of five book awards.
