9781491703878: Legends Live On: Vietnam War, Desert Storm, and Berlin Wall Eras

Jennifer Haraldsson Sherman is now a Wife and Mother. She is also an Army Nurse serving in the Washington, DC area. With Vietnam heating up, she is uncomfortable thinking of the young Americans who will be going there to fight and die. She feels an obligation to once again serve her country, but she knows she will have to get the approval of her family first. In Eastern Germany, Jennifer's old flame, Otto Bruner, is working hard for German reunification. He has to be careful, though, as his bosses in East Germany believe Communism is the way to go. Underneath, Otto strongly disagrees. One only has to compare the standard of living between East and West Germany to know that Otto's secret feelings are correct. In this fascinating and hair-raising story, the author lays out the many challenges that are inherent in one of the most exciting periods in the history of the United States. As he did with previous novels in the series, the author ties the challenges faced by the leading characters with the most powerful people of the era. The novel includes U.S. Presidents from John F. Kennedy to George Herman Walker Bush. The result is a thriller with many twists and turns which brings the key surviving characters together in what can truly be considered the end of an era. This book is a must-read for all those who love a gripping story.

From the Author:

"Legends live on' is the fourth and final sequel to Mr. R. S. Baty's exciting novel series.
Once again Mr. Baty has magically combined the flow of main historic events and the skillfully chosen fictional characters that we have learned to love in the previous sequels.
Characters like Otto Bruner truly become legends within their own and very interesting lives proving that it is courageous people that make a difference in this world.
The novel continues with extraordinary friendships and lets the reader be part of the deeply emotional lives, events and thoughts of the characters. It is filled with suspense and a thrilling flow of events.
It is this fascinating and extremely interesting group of characters with their extraordinary friendships and the historical connection that makes this novel and the characters in it so much more realistic.
 
I thank Mr. R. S. Baty for sharing this wonderfully written novel series with us."

"Legends Live On, the fourth and final installment of R. S. Baty's acclaimed series of historical novels, continues the series' ambitious epochal sweep across three decades of war. The year is 1962. Jennifer Haraldsson Sherman, now happily married, is head nurse at Walter Reed Hospital. The wrenching personal ordeals she suffered in the European and Korean conflicts are years behind her. Still, Vietnam looms ominously on the horizon, portending more tumult in the life of this dedicated army nurse and officer. As in his earlier novels, R. S. Baty skillfully integrates his characters into the era's background of war and political brinkmanship. He grants us intimate witness to the pivotal events that defined the Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Carter and Reagan presidencies - events that inexorably shape the lives of the novel's characters. It's pleasurable to be reintroduced to these engaging characters in whom we have invested so much emotionally over the course of the novels. As usual, Baty's knack for the unpredictable takes Jennifer, her old flame Ottto Bruner and others down unexpected paths to outcomes that are surprising, satisfying and, even, triumphant!"
