Anyone interested in European history should read this. The history of Germany is, in effect, the history of Europe, so there's a vast number of interwoven events which are carefully picked apart and examined. Mr A'Barrow's prose is immensely readable, combining a compelling narrative with humour and sharp criticism, while at the same time feeling authoritative and concise.

It's a long read, yet well worth the time and effort. Book of the year for me. The best history book I've ever read.
