About the author:
Born in a small German village east of Cologne, Germany, Lothar E. Meinerzhagen after finishing school, expressed his desire to work in journalism. First step was the Deutsche Journalistenschule (German School of Journalism) in Munich, followed by an apprenticeship at the highly respected Munich newspaper Münchner Merkur under the leadership of famous anchorman Franz Wördemann.
But he then realized that the next few decades were to be in the music industry where he managed to become an executive for EMI Music. He worked for the company in Cologne, London, Los Angeles and Berlin, working with acts such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queen, Little Steven and David Bowie amongst many. In 2002 he decided to call it quits pursuing other interests.
All his life he was interested in military history and developed an enormous know-how which enabled him to act as a battlefield guide to friends and business colleagues alike. He now set up his vision of a battlefield travel company that took numerous military buffs to the beaches of Normandy, Peenemünde, Berlin, the Western Front of WWI, Crimea, Stalingrad (Volgograd) and Monte Cassino in Italy just to name a few destinations. In these years he developed the idea to “Götterdämmerung” and other stories related to WWI and WWII. His enormous knowledge of these events, his highly skilled technique of using even the smallest and hardly known historic detail makes his novels so entertaining. Though Lothar Meinerzhagen enjoyed a classical education he is certainly not in favour of so called political correct books and other publications. Instead, he loves to quote Evelyn Beatrice Hall, who wrote under the pseudonym S.G.Tallentyre a biography of Voltaire with the title “The Friends of Voltaire”: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
About Götterdämmerung – Twilight Of The Gods
One works feverishly on the victorious completion of the conflict in Berlin and London. Oberleutnant Othmar Schmidt is the German protagonist patronized by Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, chief of the military secret service – Abwehr. Gordon Schmitt is the opponent who, by order of the British Mi 6, tries to disclose and sabotage the plans of Nazi Germany.
A technological race is about to begin, governed by Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler on the German side. Othmar Schmidt, a determined opponent of Hitler and his objectives, tries with all means to convince Himmler to eliminate Hitler and to arrange a peace agreement with the western powers. But this runs counter to Roosevelt’s and Churchill’s ideas.
„Twilight Of The Gods” is a tour de Force through the younger German history and demonstrates the unbelievable German engineering achievements developed under hardly conceivable circumstances that have left their marks in jet fighters, cruise missiles or stealth bombers to this day. „Twilight Of The Gods is” a novel which describes with enormous precision what would have happened, had the military technical revolution become a reality in Nazi Germany in time.
We hope to have an English version of Götterdämmerung – Twilight Of The Gods – available in the near future.
We also want to offer a print version of the book. Amazons Book On Demand division, Creative Space, enables authors to release print versions of up to 500 pages. Götterdämmerung – Twilight Of The Gods has got twice as many pages. Because of the sheer magnitude of the novel we obviously need a large quantity of orders to make the price attractive.
