Table of Contents, story #9:Perhaps, this story does not belong in this collection of stories. It is historical fiction. It is the odd duck story. However, it is still weird. It is a case of history being stranger than fiction. The strangeness is that the Berlin Wall could have been prevented. Yup! The Berlin Wall did not have to happen.
The Birthday Party
The United States had a spy who could have stopped the construction of the Berlin Wall. So, why didn't he?
In Moscow, 10 August 1961, Oleg Vladimirovich Penkovsky attended Sergei Varentsov's 62nd birthday party. At the party, it was announced that the Berlin Wall would be constructed. See, Penkovsky was an American Spy, a double agent. He could have alerted the Western Allies, but he chose sit on the information believing that his cover was more important.
OK, stay tuned for updates.
