The Other Eisenhower
Augustine Francis Campana, Marco Maria Di Tillo
"The Other Eisenhower" is woven into a set of actual events that occurred just prior to 6 June 1944.
The tale takes the reader on an exciting journey filled with plot twists, suspense, and danger, all experienced by a simple London postman who unwittingly reads secret Operation Overlord plans and becomes the target of both the Allies, who want to keep him from talking, and the Germans, who are desperate to learn what he knows.
The adventure begins on a warm May day with a security breach at the British War Office in Whitehall and progresses to an air base in the English countryside. An abduction and escape then takes the reader on a thrilling adventure from Germany, into Holland, and through Belgium. The story's climax begins in German-occupied France where, with the help of the French Underground, the postman deals with the high intrigue and ominous circumstances of the Nazi Gestapo led by one of Hitler's most sinister generals. From the medieval town of Laon, to a luxurious mansion in Paris, followed by captivity at Rommel's headquarters at La Roche-Guyon, the excitement never stops. Nor does the postman's quest to return home and to the woman he loves.
Throughout, we look in on General Dwight Eisenhower and his staff as they implement Allied plans to invade Europe and free that continent from the grip of Hitler's despotism. The reader also experiences the plotting and scheming of Nazi leaders to learn those plans and foil what would be the greatest amphibious assault in history--D-Day.
