Field Station Herzo Base

Even though "Voices Under Berlin: The Tale of a Monterey Mary" is set in Berlin, veterans of Herzo Base should also feel themselves right at home. The author did a tour at Herzo Base. He was one of the last ones to leave when the mission moved to Field Station Augsburg, and a good number of the things in the novel actually happened at Herzo Base. 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."
