Über Alles

The Germans may have lost the war, but they've certainly won the peace.

Here George Mikes takes a not-very-serious look at how they've done it. He puts post-war Germany under his own unique microscope. He's much more interested in how they've rebuilt their attitudes than in how they've rebuilt buildings.

Everything from Hitler to Bonn. From the German sense of humour to the Ruhr Barons. Nothing escapes Mikes's ironic mind.

For the price of this book, you'll be taken around both East and West Germany. And you guide will be a man who's funny - even when he's being serious.
