Editorial Reviews

Review

“Combining interviews with family letters and diaries, the author provides an entertaining account of an artistic German family who did not conceal their dislike of Hitler but survived the war.... A fine addition to the...number of firsthand World War II personal stories.” ―Kirkus

“Must read. . . . Milton recreates a mood of foreboding in the lead-up to the war and then the horrors of the war itself.” ―Sunday Telegraph (UK)

“A remarkable narrative of [Wolfram] Aichele's life during the Nazi regime, written by his son-in-law Giles Milton.” ―Irish Times (UK)

“Engaging, poignant, and vivid… Offers an illuminating experience of ‘ordinary' Germans living in ‘small-town Germany.” ―BBC History Magazine

“Powerful…Invaluable.” ―The Daily Express (UK)

“Idiosyncratic and utterly fascinating” ―Mail on Sunday (UK)
