♦ Eleventh Hour Covenant. (Eleventh Hour Covenant Thriller Series. Book 1)
- in the final editing stage
In Eleventh Hour Covenant, Israel is threatened by one of its many enemies. The aggressor is determined to destroy the little nation and is not put off by Israel’s military prowess or even its nuclear deterrent. In the capitals of the combatant nations, hawks and doves vie for influence over the response of their respective armed forces.
One of the governments sees the survival of its population as the first priority; the other sees a great sacrifice as some kind of entrance to a new and better future. The men on the front line are bound by these decisions, made on their behalf.
Fighter pilot, Yitzhak Abrahams, is tormented by the vacillations of his government about an enemy that needs to be neutralized now. Attempting to balance his growing tension and the demands of his girlfriend, Leah, for a more committed relationship, Yitzhak finds he is losing on both fronts.
His uncle, Israeli Air Force general, Tuvia Alon, tries to steady his young subordinate with his depth of military experience and a glimpse into Israel’s secret advances in military technology. Both are surprised when circumstances quickly unfold into a dire threat that seems impossible to thwart.

My upcoming war novels
♦Tiergartenstrasse 4. A compilation of 6 short stories from World War II Nazi Germany.
- to be completed shortly
Follow the lives of 6 individuals living in Nazi Germany at the height of Hitler’s power.

Witness those who, for the hope of advancement in the new order, quickly forget all that hundreds of years of Judaeo-Christian culture have taught them. Also hear about those individuals of high ethical regard who, in many and varied ways, attempted to slow, blunt and derail the deadly progression of the National Socialists.
♦The Third Reich. An Unpredictable Enemy.
- planned and commenced
Nazi Germany was a unique situation in the annals of human history. Apart from the obvious brutality of the regime, the rivalry between the vested interests was not only contested but encouraged by the hierarchy. Competing spheres of influence such as the Wehrmacht and Schultz-Staffel were also mirrored in the areas of weapons technology and their actual manufacturing. Scientists representing their competing industrial firms raced to offer the regime the most cutting edge killing machines to reverse the Nazis’ steadily declining fortunes.
At the top of the pyramid the Fuhrer played these rival groups against one another. On the one hand, he was always guarding against any technological knowledge somehow undermining his political power. On the other hand, he seemed to be trying to take the ‘it cannot be done’ factor out of the need to produce new wonder weapons to change the war’s direction. Because of these factors a superior advance in military science was quite possible and therefore a last minute fluke to snatch a victory out of defeat was often on the cards.
