Reviews

"Engrossing" -- Matt Chilton, **Books of the Year** * Daily Telegraph *
"Eighty years after the events it depicts, Berlin 1936 is a small masterpiece - you actually feel like you were there... The book was originally in German, but Jefferson Chase's translation is so perfectly judged, you'd never even notice" -- Marcus Berkmann * Daily Mail, **Books of the Year** *
"Entertaining... A vivid collage of vignettes gleaned from diaries, police reports, snippets from newspapers, and so on. It dances from comedy to tragedy, from the ironic to the sinister, to give a picture of a darkening Germany... Hilmes has an eye for incidental detail." -- Robbie Millen * The Times *
"A German historian charts the Berlin Olympics day by day through a series of memorable vignettes of life under Nazism. Hilmes' deceptively jaunty, even comic tone echoes that of the Games themselves" -- Simon Kuper * Financial Times, **Books of the Year** *
"This book reads like a tourist guide to a city on the eve of destruction" -- Gerard DeGroot * The Times, **Books of the Year** *
