About the Book

The Other Side Of Isolation is the fourteenth book in the Other Side series. Tempers are flaring at the Canadian barracks as time drags on overseas. The men are feeling isolated from their families and the world. They have very little access to news of the outside world. This is incomprehensible to us as we live in a society whereby we have instant access to information literally at our fingertips. The soldiers wonder where the music gone to in their lives.

Suspense is heightened when a man is discovered lying on the ground behind the Canadian barracks close to the cross that marks the children's grave. Johann's puppy, Hundy, races over to the empty children's sleeping car and does something he never does – he barks. We soon discover what has the little puppy so upset.

We learn details of a couple of the thwarted attempts on Adolf Hitler's life. It is truly uncanny how this madman seemed to sense imminent danger in each case. This begs the question: How would the world be different if one of these early attempts to assassinate Hitler would have been successful?
