You can read my review of Alone in Berlin Every Man Dies Alone in the USA] by Hans Fallada translated by Michael Hoffman at Euro Crime here.

This is a brilliant book about ordinary people fighting back in the only way they know. What do you do when your whole country gets stolen? 

This book should be compulsory reading in all our schools in order to educate our children against the dangers of Fascism in all its forms. Don’t take my word for it and for once the blurbs are spot on.

“Alone in Berlin is one of the most extraordinary and compelling novels ever written about World War II. Ever. Please, do not miss this.” 
Alan Furst

“An unrivalled and vivid portrait of life in wartime Berlin”
Philip Kerr

“The greatest book ever written about German resistance to the Nazis”
Primo Levi
