By the author of the best-selling DRESDEN, THE BERLIN WALL has been reissued to coincide with the 20th anniversary since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The Wall had tragic consequences in personal and political terms, affecting the lives of Germans and non-Germans alike in a myriad of cruel, inhuman and occasionally absurd ways. A city of almost four million was cut ruthlessly in two, which was overcome only when the very people the Wall had been built to imprison, breached it on the historic night of 9 November 1989. THE BERLIN WALL is the definitive account of a divided city and its people.
