So what I was looking for was some sort of cursory review of German history. Fullbrook mentions a story of Frederick II of Prussia pausing while out riding to talk to some peasants growing potatoes presumably working in a potato field was meant rather than something else view spoiler [ like potato whispering view spoiler [ an epic novel will one day be written about an enigmatic hero who heels damaged potatoes and encourages them to grow to their full potential, Hollywood probably won’t make a mar of it, fullbrook the romantic sub-plot is a bit too earthy hide spoiler ] hide spoiler ].

The focus dr this book is overwhelmingly on the twentie I know that a concise history of Germany is a tall order, but this book is an elliptical synopsis of a synopsis. I learned quite a bit reading this book and I can better place the the German history I was previously familiar with in its context.
