Buzz Bombs by James Huber is a historical drama that sheds light on the origins of UFO conspiracies and the craze following real-life events post World War II. The war is ending, and German forces are retreating. Ordered to defend Berlin, the German army left valuable assets behind enemy lines. When Sergeant Beck and Captain Schell of the US Army stumble upon an abandoned German bunker filled with buzz bombs, they are quickly promoted to the rank of major and assigned a top-secret mission to accompany their findings to San Diego, California. Major Cassidy, Beck, and Schell work on the missiles to try to make them operational. Meanwhile, Russian Premier Stalin is enraged by the loss of the buzz bombs and assigns Agent Orlov on an insidious mission, only to lose the space race spectacularly.
Buzz Bombs is a captivating story that offers us a rare glimpse at one of those lesser-known tales that changed the tide of the US-Russian rivalry post World War II. James Huber infuses humor into the narrative yet retains the story's authenticity and the events on which it is based. This is an example of how seemingly ordinary men and women can sometimes change the course of history and make their mark on it forever. There are some genuinely funny moments and scenes that make you laugh at the sheer absurdity of the situations the characters find themselves in. I enjoyed it, and if you love to read historical fiction, you will too.
