The Tunnels: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Triedto Kill by [Mitchell, Greg]

Hello again, everyone. Tonight finds us in a new book review and this time it’s The Tunnels: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill by Greg Mitchell.

This book centers on 1962. The year after the rise of the Berlin Wall, a group of young West Germans risked prison and even death to liberate friends, lovers, and strangers in East Berlin by digging tunnels under the Wall.

When two U.S. television networks heard about the secret projects they raced through these tunnels to document the pair’s progress. In fact, NBC and CBS funded two separate tunnels in return for the right to film the escapes, planning spectacular prime-time specials.

Then President John F. Kennedy, however, was afraid of any conflict that might spark a confrontation with the Soviets. This is the basis for this novel.

The Tunnels is breaking history, a propulsive read whose themes still reverberate. A novel you should read this season!
