In 1938, a non-Jewish upper-middle-class lawyer fled Germany for England and began writing an account of his daily life under Nazi rule (using the pen-name Sebastian Haffner). The manuscript was not discovered until after his death in 1999, and it was published in Germany in 2000. This first English-language edition, translated by Oliver Pretzel (the author's son), contains six additional chapters recently uncovered by archivists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
