While we performed extensive research on the cities and history of Peenemünde and Nordhausen in preparing this book, we naturally took liberties about both locations and the experiments performed at them for the purpose of the fictional adventure we wanted to tell you. What we have not taken lightly is the millions of lives truly destroyed when Jews, Slavs and others deemed undesirable by the Nazi government were enslaved and worked to death for the purpose of advancing the Nazi war at these sites and elsewhere throughout Europe. We humbly acknowledge the great debt owed to those who sacrificed to liberate that continent; and we offer reverence to those who suffered the horror of the purges and the camps.

“Peter Sichel was a true insider during the heyday of the CIA during the late 1940s and 1950s. From Berlin to Hong Kong, he served in a global secret war that was, by turns, gallant, necessary, dangerous, and wrongheaded. ... His memoir is clear-eyed, charming, and fascinating.”
--Evan Thomas, author of The Very Best Men: The Daring Early Years of the CIA
“Peter Sichel is an iconic figure in the history of wine. With his European upbringing and early years in the CIA, his story is both fascinating and compelling. His success with Blue Nun is nothing short of classic marketing.”
--Marvin R. Shanken, Editor & Publisher, Wine Spectator
