Pressestimmen

'It reads like a novel, and it is in fact a small masterpiece.' John Clive, The Times Literary Supplement 'Better than any fiction.' The Times 'Chadwick tells their story with grace and great charm, for he is as fully a master of writing as of history, and there can be hardly anybody who would not rejoice over the reading of such a book as this, which is quite fascinating from its first page to its last.' The Guardian
