The author, born in Germany in 1932, grew up in the midst of the turbulence of Nazi Germany. This is the story of a middle class German boy growing up during and after the excesses of Hitler's regime.

"The author revisits his youth and discovers all is not what it appeared. Many Germans were not monsters, or uncaring, just ordinary people led astray by one of the most effective propaganda machines the world had ever known or misled by the fact that Hitler's rise to power was within the bounds of the German Constitution of the time… Boetcher makes no attempt to justify the cruelty and excesses, but does go some way to explain how they came about. His book is a powerful reminder that it only takes a few good men to say nothing to allow the forces of evil to take control… It also provides a thought-provoking but warm window into family life while growing up in a country embracing war."
