Product description

David Childs, Emeritus Professor of German Politics at Nottingham University, published his latest book a few weeks ago to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

We Were No Heroes, is fact-based, and tells the story of a British teenager, Martin Thomas, interned in Nazi Germany, who is influenced by John Amery, the pro-Hitler son of Churchill Cabinet Minister Leo Amery, to join the Waffen-SS to fight against Stalin's Russia. Taken prisoner in 1945, he is saved from a Soviet POW/labour camp, by a Jewish doctor and her father to work for the Soviet version of a Free Germany. Thomas is sent to the Soviet zone of Germany to join the People's Police. This eventually leads to a career as an intelligence officer in the notorious Stasi. Posing as a journalist, he is sent on various missions to London, Bonn, Vienna and, eventually, in 1989, California.

Although this fact-based book can be read just as an adventure, it is suitable for adults interested in World War II, Cold War espionage, the life and loves of a spy, 'it is a book of reconciliation about the human condition.'

Peter Johnson, former Reuter's Chief Correspondent in Bonn, Berlin and the BBC's man in Moscow, "a fascinating story."
