No two countries in Europe possess a stronger history of cultural and familial sympathy than Britain and Germany. These stories, recovered from a wealth of unpublished material, remind us of this long-standing friendship, largely obliterated by Hitler and the Nazi regime. The stories here are of emperors, kings and queens; travellers, writers, artist, students and political exiles; of ambassadors, reformers and families; all so closely woven into the fabric of both countries that when war came, divided loyalties ripped them apart. 512pp, photos.
