Bridge to Tomorrow:

A Novel of the Berlin Airlift

Book III: Cold Victory

Scheduled for Release 2025


With the Airlift gaining momentum day-by-day, the Russians turn to more devious and covert tactics to thwart the forces of democracy. Key players — or their loved ones — are targeted for unscrupulous attacks. The Americans have learned that the policy of “collective guilt” is no longer viable. Yet “collective amnesty” enables some Nazis to worm their way back into positions of power — and use that power against the most vulnerable.

Award-winning novelist Helena P. Schrader takes the reader away from the limelight and into the shadow side of the Berlin Airlift to explore its social, psychological and long-term impact.

Based on historical events, Cold Victory highlights, how the victory of the Allied Airlift brings with it the division of Europe and turns Russia into an inveterate enemy of democracy and the West.
