The Ides of August: The Berlin Wall Crisis, 1961.

by Curtis Cate

Condition: See description


New York, NY M. Evans and Company, 1978. Hardcover First Ed; First Printing indicated. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Book shows slight crimping at heel of backstrip; barely discernible spine lean; faint dust at top edge. Binding secure; text clean. DJ shows mild rubbing; price intact. Despite some minor flaws, 'Nearly New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 534pp. Hardback with DJ. Gripping account of the most shameful episode in post-war German history. Compellingly readable, with no punches pulled. Mr Cate pays particular attention to the 'human' factor, to the 'ordinary' people whose lives were so tragically affected by the building of The Wall and its aftermath. Even those with no particular interest in politics or history would be engrossed by this book. We recommend it wholeheartedly.
