Bruce Zielsdorf wrote Munich Spring: A Cold War Adventure in Bavaria as a fictional exploration of events and perspectives he witnessed and experienced while living and working in Germany at the moment political regimes there crumbled. Munich Spring is a novel, but it shares the very real impact of politics, religion, science, and technology through the eyes of everyday people caught up in the moment and not sure where these transformations might take them.
