Format: Hardcover
Another masterpiece of the great non-fictional writer which is William Manchester, The Arms of Krupp is a personal, amazingly detailed and breathtaking view of the last 100 years of German history. By telling the story of the Krupp family - one of the leading industrialists and the most important arms producer of Germany - Manchester actually re-tells the well-known story of how Germany enflamed the world twice. The book is a spellbiding saga of human thrive, errors and new beginnings.

Format: Hardcover
i picked up City of Anger for much the same reason William Manchester wrote it---as a "distraction". curious about what kind of non-fiction would the author write i was about a third of the way thru when i experienced a visceral horror at an event in the action. and this in a piece of non-fiction! i put the book down unfinished and will pick it up, later, when i am ready.
