Content:

Somewhere in the german east, robots are being developed to further accelerate the economical development of the east over the west. Naturally, spies from the west are trying to sabotage the developments of these robots and equally naturally they fail.

A nice bit of pro-communist propaganda paired with a nice story to read. Interesting is the language, which uses no english words. When you are used to reading authors from the west, this is really something you notice.

Also interesting is the fact that the book had a pre-corrector, two correctors and an editor. I guess the military made sure everything was correct when publishing books ...
