The Germans and Europe : A Personal Frontline History, Paperback / softback Book

The Germans and Europe : A Personal Frontline History Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Based on a lifetime living in and reporting on Germany and Central Europe, award-winning journalist and author Peter Millar tackles the fascinating and complex story of the people at the heart of our continent.

Focussing on nine cities (only six of which are in the Germany of today) he takes us on a zigzag ride back through time via the fall of the Berlin Wall through the horrors of two world wars, the patchwork states of the Middle Ages, to the splendour of Charlemagne and the fall of Rome, with side swipes at everything on the way, from Henry VIII to the Spanish Empire.

Included are mini portraits of aspects of German culture from sex and money to food and drink.

Not just a book about Germany but about Europe as a whole and how we got where we are today, and where we might be tomorrow.
