Summary
Miranda Seymour tells the remarkable story of England's centuries of profound connection and rivalry with Germany. Her vibrant and heart-breaking history-told through the lives of princes and painters, soldiers and sailors, bakers and bankers, charlatans and saints-reminds us, poignantly, of the powerful bonds many have chosen to forget
