Rezension bezieht sich auf: Germania: A Personal History of Germans Ancient and Modern (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Mr. Winder must be a very clever man indeed, for he has written a history of Germany without being able to read or speak a single word of German. He seems to have visited the country at least three times, and has read a few history books which he has paraphrased in his own humorous way. He believes Germans worry about the war all the time (they don't). He says, on the basis of his few visits, combined with the inability to read the menu, that German food is awful.
Amusing, yes. Superficial, very. Historical content, well-filled but one sided. Do not use as a guide to Germany.

Well, I have visited Germany at least 30 times and spent at least 20 years immersed in its history, art, music and literature and I like a lot of German food and can read German menus. Of course, this can translate into a superficial book - but I thought I should at least set the record straight!

Untrue! Germans NEVER shut up about the War and this now has a VERY detrimental affect on all things German - especially since 1989. And before you ask, I have lived here for three decades. I do wish they would shut up and come into the real, present-day, world properly!
