The Olive Branch by Brendan Gisby

indie ebook cover

In 1975, when in his mid-twenties, Brendan Gisby - spurred on by a press report on "The warming of relations between the Republic of China and the USSR" - put his imaginative prowess of words to work, together with the courage of his convictions, and the then-full-blooded youth (in his own words "I was further Right than Attila the Hun") began to write his own version of what might happen should these two Communist giants combine and collude to dominate the world.

The result, some 30 years later due to the intervention of life and his career, is "The Olive Branch". Set a few years into the future, this gripping and scintillating yarn has all the necessary ingredients and more for a first class read. Combining the horrors of war with the scenic beauty of surrounding countryside, and the essential underlying blossoming of first love, this book provokes a host of emotions within the reader - not least of which is the humbling realisation of how lucky we are to have our freedom.
