About "Life Behind the Wall (3 in 1) (The Wall Series)"
Marking the 55th anniversary of the creation of the Berlin Wall, this epic tale extends across generations and unfolds against the backdrop of a dangerous Cold War Berlin. This historically accurate, action-packed compilation features teens and their family's struggle living in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, from its creation after WWII, to life behind the wall during the Cold War, to the Wall's ultimate and final destruction.Book 1: The story begins in Candy Bombers with cousins Erich and Katarina as they struggle to survive in post-World War II Berlin. Starvation is a real threat, and their lives are changed forever when they sneak inside a U.S. Air Force base. The historically accurate details touch on the true story of the Chocolate Bombers, Air Force pilots who dropped candy to starving children behind the Berlin Wall. Book 2: Fast-forward to 1961 for book two, Beetle Bunker, when Cold War tensions peak and the Berlin Wall traps Sabine and her friend Willi on the wrong side of the city. Though handicapped by childhood polio, Sabine (Erich's younger half-sister) learns to trade weakness for trust when she discovers a forgotten underground bunker. In the end it could take them under the wall to freedom, or into more danger than ever.Book 3: No one expects what would ultimately happen to the wall that separated this family for three generations. In book three, Smuggler's Treasure, the time is 1989, the Cold War is thawing, and Liesl, daughter of Sabine and Willi, discovers a family secret that may prove more exciting than anything imagined in this excellent and important conclusion.
