Berlin Wall: a World Divided

Postby uncle janko » Wed Sep 19, 2007 8:39 am

by Frederick Taylor is a fascinating, horrifying, and at times blackly humorous recounting of the inverted walled garden of the Ulbrichtparadies.

Actually, if someone had put up one of these things around Prussia about 300 years ago...

(In fairness, ole Spitzbart was a Saxon.)

Dresden

Taylor's book on the bombing of Dresden (and the pro-totalitarian mythmaking that ensued--a seamless web of Nazi and Communist and Neo-Nazi [D. Irving] publicism) is most interesting.
