On the night of the 12-13 August 1961 a wall was built. This was no ordinary wall. It was a wall that systematically divided a city in half. The Berlin Wall was erected to keep the population of Eastern Germany from leaving and it would be almost thirty years before they could again move freely within their own city. This fascinating book documents the history of Germany that led to the building of the wall, the personal stories of those who tried to go over, under or around it whilst trying to escape to the west and the political turmoil that finally led to its destruction in November 1989.
