Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Vanished Kingdom: Travels Through the History of Prussia (Paperback)
Having read the more recent book by Max Egremont (Forgotten Land: Journeys Among the Ghosts of East Prussia), I found that these two books work well together - there is of course some element of similarity and a travelogue approach, but each book has something to offer in itself. Vanished Kingdom goes into more detail regarding the history of the area, but the writing style is not off-putting at all. Moreover this book does ask some pertinent questions about the future of this area and where Germany fits in here. My one caveat is that the two maps in the book are frankly inadequate, with some important places mentioned in the book not even featuring.
