A spy thriller based on the real actions of the 513th Army Intelligence battalion at the height of the cold war
On Hamburg Station is a work of historical fiction based on real intelligence operations that took place and were conducted by the Army’s 513th INTC Group from 1956 to 1966. Forget what you’ve seen in the movies, this is the true world of espionage in the early 1960’s. The 513th was headquartered at Camp King, Oberursel, West Germany, with three operating stations featured in this work, Berlin, Bremerhaven, and Hamburg. The Hamburg Station was a sub-station reporting to Bremerhaven, and contained a group of agent handlers targeted against the Soviet Union, Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary. This novel traces the lives of several people who defended America during the height of the Cold War.
