Overview

Winter: The Tragic Story of a Berlin Family 1899-1945 by Len Deighton

 In this gripping prelude to the Game, Set, Match trilogy, spies aren't born--they're made. Winter tells the tale of a Berlin family divided. Two brothers, Peter and Paul Winter, came of age during the Great War; then as Hitler's power spreads through Germany threatening a new era of violence, the brothers are driven apart by differing morals and ambitions. Meticulously researched, this allegory of a nation at odds with itself paints a brilliant portrait of the German zeitgeist during those turbulent years, and provides a powerful depiction of the rise of the Third Reich.

Prequel to the Game, Set, Match trilogy. It is a little too long which makes it surprising that the ending is too abrupt. But it is fun to get to meet many of the peripheral characters that Bernard Samson interacts with in those stories. And Deighton knows his history, so the story feels more real than most fiction.
