About this book
The German historian, author of "The Face Of The Third Reich" and "Inside Hitler's Bunker" chronicles his own extraordinary childhood in this memoir. Born in 1926, he personally experienced the Nazi regime, which his father resisted.
'Exceptional... it tells in a modest, believable, quietly bitter and totally proud way of a family's extraordinary decency... Strong and unique. Without it, the English language these days is short a very good book.' New York Times
