"Neither a set of reflections flor a philippic, but a record ...The best eyewitness account we possess of the bombing of Berlin."
-- Gordon A. Craig, The New York Times Book Review
"A rare opportunity to see the Second World War from an unusual perspective: the view from Berlin and Vienna, not Washington or London. [The author] has a sharp eye and a witty tongue." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer
"A vivid insider's view of Nazi Germany." -- Vanity Fair
"One of the most remarkable documents to come out of the war, and nothing will ever quite match its calm and grace in utterly hideous circumstances."
-- John Kenneth Galbraith
