Teaser Tuesday (17 August)

Teaser Tuesday again, hos- waitaminute, who'd he say he was? 

"Sind Sie Frau Druce?" A man's voice.
"Yes, I'm Peggy Druce. And who the devil are you?"
"Adolf Hitler here," the voice answered. 

p. 170, The War that Came Early: West and East.  Harry Turtledove.

  15. @Joy: Well, she...asked for it. ;) She's an American citizen trapped in Berlin after the war begins (but before the US enters it) and having difficulty getting an exit visa. So, she wrote a letter to Hitler asking him for his assistance.

    That was an awkward conversation.
