Format: Paperback
This book starts with the early beginings of Ferdinand Porsch and relates the entire story of his career as an auto maker , then as the father of the VW beetle. This is the most complete accounting on the involvement of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi party through the war years, and the saving of the factory by the British Army and Major Ivan Hirst. This book also tells the story of Heinz Nordhoff,President of VW from 1946 till his death in 1967. He is the man rsponsible for the VW Beetle becoming the most manufactured car in world history

Small wonder: The amazing story of the Volkswagen is a must for VW enthusiasts. It starts with the detailed recount of the genesis of the idea of a "peoples car" on both sides, the creator: Ferdinand Porsche and the force behind the construction: Adolf Hitler, and takes you up to what the VW company is today (depends on the edition you get how far into the history you get).
It is based on a great number of interviews of people who was very involved in all aspects of the development of the VW. Design, building, marketing and managing. It recounts the story of an idea, a car and a company that became the brand that we all recognize this days.
The book is a description of the history of the VW bug from the human side, not much about figures and numbers but a lot of human will.
I will recommend this book to all who want to read a warm history about the VW bug from a very human perspective. The car that almost never was but due to the triumph of the human spirit it is now an icon in history.

I remember reading Small World years ago. Great Book but I loaned it to someone who did not return it. Later, I had the desire to read it again. That's when I ordered it from Amazon. The book arrived in the condition as advertised and I a timely manner.
