John and Esther fall in love. It sounds like a simple story line but it is not.
John, American pilot during the Second World War, and Esther, survivor of the holocaust, meet at a volatile time in history, and their love supports and carries them through difficult times beyond their control. But this is not just a love story. It is a look into a time in history that few people understand. The Second World War was officially over but the Cold War was in its infancy, during which time, the Soviet Army blockaded West Berlin, an attempt to force communism on over two million people. Esther refused John's offer to escape the difficulties of this time and insisted on making the one decision that she could make on her own. Up until that time, everything that had happened to her was out of her control. She stayed in Berlin to help the cause, while John flew for the Airlift, transporting vital supplies that would save the lives of many in West Berlin.
Author, Kati Fabian's life had been affected by the Cold War years and her interest in finding the truth about a little talked about subject led her to write Eagles Over Berlin. She has filled the pages of this well written novel with facts that few would know, but softens the pain and fear with a love story that transcends the horror. This is a story of love, devastation, optimism and grief. But in many ways, it is an education. This reviewer better understands the workings of the Cold War and highly recommends Eagles Over Berlin to all those interested in learning more about this period of history. We must again make a stand against terrorism and it is heartening to be reminded that with perseverance, teamwork arad love, there will be success.

Reviewer's Comments: A fascinating and entertaining story.
What a wonderful book! I was born in Germany just after the war. Growing up in postwar Germany, I remember the debris and rubble, which was my playground at the time. Your book describes the circumstances of life in those days very accurately and your story is fascinating. Once I started reading I could not stop until the end of the book. I admire your work for its excellent attention to detail including the description of the last days of communism in Eastern Europe and how it ended.

As an American participant in the postwar years of Germany, including the period of the Blockade, I was drawn strongly to the description and experiences of the characters in your book. The book brought back many memories to me of the traumatic times and places described so vividly and yet clearly therein. I couldn't put it down from the moment I started reading until the very end. Thank you for your memorable story.
