The Other Eisenhower

A Very Different Kind of Story about D-Day

Archive for the category “Historical Fiction”

Campana and Di Tillo need your help — The Bellevue Hotel in Dresden

Now that The Other Eisenhower has been published by Webster House Publishing — in paperback and very soon to be an e-book and hard cover –we are working on our next story.  It is also about World War II and it predates the Eisenhower story by ten years. One important scene takes place when Hitler visits Dresden in late May of 1934.  He stayed at the Bellevue Hotel there for several days. That hotel was demolished after WWII and a new one was built across the Elbe river from the original site. We have not been able to find  pictures or detailed information about the interior of  old hotel. Does anyone have any photos or info about the old Bellevue Hotel in Dresden that they can share for our research.  Thanks

Hello -Historical Fiction Lovers

BookCoverFront-032413SMALL

We are Augustine Campana and Marco DiTillo, and are happy to announce our new work, The Other Eisenhower, a most exciting piece of historical fiction about D-Day.

The book has been published by Webster House Publishing, LLC, and is available from their POD supplier at http://www.createspace.com/4178059

It is also on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Other-Eisenhower-Augustine-Francis-Campana/dp/1932635351

In this blog, we will discuss aspects of the story–both our fictional account and the facts that stand as the very imposing backdrop for the story.

Wars are full of odd events and coincidences. It was no different on that warm morning in May 1944 when an open window, an errant breeze, and classified plans for the invasion of Europe aligned to create a near disaster. History records that twelve copies of the plans blew out a War Office window and onto Whitehall. Quick action by frantic staffers led to the recovery of eleven of the documents. One copy remained missing long enough to find its way into the hands of an innocent passerby. The missing copy was eventually turned in to a sentry at the Horse Guards, located across from the War Office, by a man with glasses.

In our story, that man is a simple London postman who discovers the document in his mail sack. The question is – “What does he do next?” Should he read it? What will happen if he does? You can read more on the Create Space and Amazon site, or at our site http://www.campana-ditillo.com
