Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A skillful weaving of history, memoir, and autobiography…full of colorful characters” Washington Post Book World
“One of the most remarkable documents to come out of the war, and nothing will ever quite match its calm and grace in utterly hideous circumstances.” John Kenneth Galbraith
“A vivid insider's view of Nazi Germany.” Vanity Fair
“Neither a set of reflections nor a philippic, but a record…The best eyewitness account we possess of the bombing of Berlin.” The New York Times Book Review
“A rare opportunity to see the Second World War from an unusual perspective: the view from Berlin and Vienna, not Washington or London. [The author] has a sharp eye and a witty tongue.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“This absorbing personal account of Berlin's Gotterdammerung represents a valuable opportunity to understand World War II from the perspective of Germany's courageous civilian population. Though no less brave than Londoners, Berliners suffered far more.” Library Journal
