The "Arms Maker of Berlin" is a very intriguing novel about a history professor named Nat Turnbull. The story begins with the professor being abducted from his office by the FBI who wants him to recover missing OSS documents from World War II concerning his mentor. The documents have to do with a resistance cell in Berlin called the White Rose and an industrialist millionaire who would like those files to disappear.

The plot takes place in current time, as well as Nazi Berlin, alternating effortlessly between chapters, but most of the adventures take place when Nat and a German researcher named Berta, try to uncover the mystery and are sent on a goose chase by Nat's mentor while avoiding everyone from the FBI to the Iranians.

I thought this book was engrossing, exciting, well paced and surprising (I did not foresee the ending) as Nat said to his students at the end "I hope to show you the ways in which history is a living entity".
