The Black Beret combines historical and military facts with fascinating fiction to create an unforgettable story of human courage and determination in the face of overwhelming adversity.
The book describes growing up in Germany after the Second World War and how the protagonist becomes a Black Beret in the German Armoured Reconnaissance Battalions and being stationed at the Iron Curtain for many years. It describes the political atmosphere in Europe at that time combined with a story of how a young woman escapes from East Germany to the West, a very dangerous undertaking.
