**Winner of 16th Annual National Indie Excellence Award for Best Military Fiction, Finalist in the 16th Annual National Indie Excellence Award for Best Historical Fiction and a Finalist the 2022 Next Generation Indie Book Award for Historical Fiction** 

In 1983, the world stands at the brink of nuclear annihilation, and only a few people are aware of it. A riveting story of how two men's lives intersect in the midst of an existential crisis, The Able Archers is told through the eyes of two key participants: a young American intelligence officer, Captain Kevin Cattani; and his more experienced Soviet counterpart, Colonel Ivan Levchenko.

The story plays out from the skies over Siberia to the gritty, dangerous streets of East Berlin. The radically different worldviews of Cattani and Levchenko punctuate the deep divisions of the Cold War. The evolving relationship between the two men also highlights the humanity common to both sides. Only by working together will Cattani and Levchenko find a way to prevent a global nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union.

GulfBob ,

Based on real events

The author was involved in many of the events described, eg, USAF intelligence officer in Japan when Korea Air 007 was shot down. Well-written, moves quickly, good characterization, quite exciting. The historical fiction approach makes the characters interesting and engaging. Very scary time when mutual distrust and refusal to communicate almost resulted in a nuclear exchange. Highly recommended.

Fast paced and heart throbbing

I really enjoyed the book. It was a little hard to follow who all the characters were but it really did not matter to the whole story which was beautifully written and heart throbbing!! Thank you, Bryan!
