Two explosive novels set in the perilous days when the world stood on the brink of chaos-from the New York Times-bestselling author of Enemy at the Gates.

For almost fifty years after World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union played a dangerous game in the shadows. And from those shadows would emerge unsung heroes who would fight for freedom . . .

The Strasbourg Legacy: Investigating the possible Soviet theft of US munitions, CIA agent Matt Corcoran hears rumors that German communists and Aryan terrorists are conspiring to assassinate political leaders. But far more ominous is the underground cadre of surviving Nazi officers bent on starting the Fourth Reich . . .

The Tashkent Crisis: As tensions rise between the superpowers, the Soviets deliver an ultimatum: surrender unconditionally or a devastating secret weapon will kill millions of Americans. Now a Special Forces team led by Col. Joe Safcek must infiltrate a secret Soviet base and destroy the mystery weapon. But the closer they get, the more Safcek realizes it may already be too late . . .

With these "furious-paced" novels of "timeclock suspense" William Craig takes readers back to a time when the Cold War could have started burning with a single spark (Kirkus Reviews).
William Craig (1929-1997) was an American historian and novelist. Born and raised in Concord, Massachusetts, he interrupted his career as an advertising salesman to appear on the quiz show Tic-Tac-Dough in 1958. With his $42,000 in winnings-a record-breaking amount at the time-Craig enrolled at Columbia University and earned both an undergraduate and a master's degree in history. He published his first book, The Fall of Japan, in 1967. A narrative history of the final weeks of World War II in the Pacific, it reached the top ten on the New York Times bestseller list and was deemed "virtually flawless" by the New York Times Book Review. In order to write Enemy at the Gates (1973), a documentary account of the Battle of Stalingrad, Craig travelled to three continents and interviewed hundreds of military and civilian survivors. A New York Times bestseller, the book inspired a film of the same name starring Jude Law and Joseph Fiennes. In addition to his histories of World War II, Craig wrote two acclaimed espionage thrillers: The Tashkent Crisis (1971) and The Strasbourg Legacy (1975).

Dateiformat: ePUB
Kopierschutz: Wasserzeichen-DRM (Digital Rights Management)


Computer (Windows; MacOS X; Linux): Verwenden Sie eine Lese-Software, die das Dateiformat EPUB verarbeiten kann: z.B. Adobe Digital Editions oder FBReader - beide kostenlos (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein "weicher" Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich - sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
