High in the Bavarian Alps: A Novel - First edition offered through Bits of Time Publishing.

This new book is one of a kind…

Explore Bavaria—a magical paradise, full of wonder and beauty, plus other areas: Austria, Southern Europe and Germany.

Civilian employees who work for the Armed Forces Recreation Center pursue fun times in Oberammergau, Berchtesgaden, Garmisch, Munich and Chiemsee. Meanwhile, military bases suffer attacks by the Baader-Meinhof Gang (aka Red Army Faction).  

This is a story never told before about these places and events: a delightful blend of mystery, romance, terror, history and a lifestyle of frolic in the early 1970s. 

Many colorful characters enjoy playful nightlife, local food, sports and traveling together. They all develop very strong friendships in a one-year period.
