Operacion Hagen (Spanish Edition) - download pdf or read online

By Felipe Botaya

La carrera por conseguir armamento nuclear ha comenzado y los nazis llevan los angeles delantera, del éxito de l. a. operación encomendada al piloto Stefan Dörner
depende el resultado de l. a. Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Stefan Dörner es un piloto de l. a. Luftwaffe que destacará por su pericia y por su valentía e irá ascendiendo en el escalafón de l. a. aviación alemana. En los últimos coletazos de los angeles Segunda Guerra Mundial, Dörner tendrá que llevar a cabo una misión que puede cambiar el curso de l. a. guerra. Operación Hagen narra los angeles aventura del piloto años después, cuando dos oficiales aliados le interrogan sobre los pormenores de l. a. misión. los angeles novela nos mostrará los avances tecnológicos nazis, el expolio de las patentes de dichos avances que llevaron a cabo los aliados, el funcionamiento de l. a. aviación alemana y el lado más humano de unos pilotos y científicos que tuvieron no pocas dudas sobre los fines de su labor.

Felipe Botaya construye, desde los angeles documentación más rigurosa y desde l. a. justificación más pulcra, una historia en los angeles que es difícil separar lo histórico de lo literario, una narración en l. a. que personajes como Hitler o Goering dialogan con otros, ficticios pero no menos verosímiles. También mostrará l. a. avanzada tecnología nazi y recreará l. a. carrera alemana por conseguir l. a. bomba atómica con lo que logra un complicado juego de realidad y ficción que dejará al lector con no pocas dudas sobre l. a. posibilidad de que los nazis tuvieran alguna vez l. a. bomba atómica en su poder.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

- El objetivo basic de l. a. novela es entretener al lector y, para eso, funde los datos históricos más sorprendentes con l. a. ficción más trepidante.

- l. a. óptica es innovadora ya que existen pocas historias sobre l. a. Segunda Guerra Mundial que tomen el punto de vista alemán.

- A pesar de ser una novela, documenta a los angeles perfección los angeles polémica tesis de que los nazis desarrollaron l. a. bomba atómica medio año antes que los aliados.

- Las fotografías que se insertan en el texto y los apéndices sobre el funcionamiento de l. a. Luftwaffe aportan una gran dosis de realismo a los angeles obra.

Una novela que muestra que demonizar por sistema un grupo humano es los angeles mejor forma de no conocer nada sobre él: los nazis además de un sistema de exterminio atroz lograron muchos avances científicos y tecnológicos que fueron aprovechados por los aliados y, a los angeles larga, por toda los angeles humanidad.

“En Operación Hagen, Felipe Botaya nos introduce en un tremendamente entretenido juego entre realidad y verosimilitud dónde multitud de personajes reales, el propio Hitler o Hermann Göring pero también un gran número de oficiales y científicos, se mezclan a los angeles perfección con personajes totalmente creíbles de aquella época.”
(http://www.librosmagnet.com)

“Si por algo destaca Operación Hagen es por l. a. originalidad de su presentación, pocas novelas se ven cargadas de imágenes y fotografías que acompañan al relato, pero en este caso y por l. a. temática y voluntad del autor, se convierten en piezas clave en el diseño del juego de l. a. narración.”
(http://lafundacion.webcindario.com)

“La documentación y l. a. tremenda capacidad de Botaya de crear una situación que podría ser actual, envuelven totalmente al lector creándole todo tipo de dudas en un sorprendente juego entre l. a. realidad histórica y l. a. ficción verosímil. ¿Fue verdad lo que se explica en el libro? ¿Sucedió realmente l. a. Operación Hagen?”
