“The Angel Catches the Stars”

THE Collapse OF THE EU

Volume 9 of the Brandt Family Chronicles

By Oliver Fairfax

This novel is set today as the EU collapses. It will take the Euro with it. Brussels wants to hurt Britain and sterling in retaliation for Brexit.

Britain will retaliate.

This is the destructive rotation. No one wins and mayhem waits.

We know what happens when a government collapses in Europe. Power migrates to the most ruthless contender for it.

We know what a government that is about to collapse looks like and the EU is that government. It will bring down every government in its jail, a pan-European disaster.

It must not happen.

Join Do-Do Brandt, Valentine’s daughter – (vols. 7 & 8) as she spends her fortune to stop the destruction. Is there a way? Is it possible? She must resurrect an alliance dormant for two hundred years.


The series, at the time of writing, comprises eight books ranging from the Napoleonic Wars (Vols 1-4), through The Franco-Prussian War (Vols 5,6), to the Cold War (Vol 7) and the present day (Vol 9). (Volume 8 is to come soon.) They start at a time when Germany was conceived and develop through its birth to modern times. (1950). The thread is the Brandt Family and their adventures. The environment is German history.

History is written by the winner and, from ace to knave, it’s a pack of lies. These books are not German history. They are a unique view of German history and the stories are told from this deserted and neglected standpoint.

This, so-far, unilluminated emphasis discloses both a disguised truth and a hidden one. Germany is not the warmonger it has been painted and as the series develops, readers’ curiosity may be piqued into checking to see if they agree with the author’s conclusions.


Oliver Fairfax is a nomad. A Scot by birth, he has wandered from England to Hong Kong and back – twice. He has lived in France and now in New Zealand. He worries that a generation is rising who cannot tell the difference between a citizen and a subject.

He is concerned about the pervasive growth of regulation that cannot be afforded, cannot be complied with, but that seeks to remove free choice. He worries also about political correctness and the suppression of dissonance being two policies that misinform ordinary people’s decision-making processes.

But those irritants aside, life’s great! – and remember, you should never have joined if you can’t take a joke.
