Put aside this awful medieval anti-Jew stuff: it will pass.’ But the point is, it won’t pass. You can’t isolate it from the rest. It’s...

Robert Harris is one of my favorite authors of historical fiction, and he has another winner on his hands with Munich. It tells the story of two men, one German and one English, who play roles in the final meeting between Chamberlain and Hitler in 1938, when peace was still a possibility. The boo...

Robert Harris offers up another wonderful novel that weaves together the events of history with some background fiction that only serves to accentuate the dramatic effect.

Robert Harris's new historical novel Munich takes him back to the subject which brought him to fame over 25 years earlier - Nazi Germany, in which he set his bestselling debut Fatherland. However, whereas Fatherland was an entertaining thriller set in an alternative world where the Axis powers wo...

This historical novel develops the behind-the-scenes drama leading to the 1938 Munich Agreement signed by Germany, France, United Kingdom and Italy which permitted Nazi Germany's annexation of portions of Czechoslovakia (a.k.a. Sudetenland). Many people today consider the famous reference to "pea...

The ability to seamlessly blend fact & fiction is a skill that Robert Harris has shown in many of his previous novels, & I'm pleased to say that Munich is no exception. The events of the 1938 Munich meeting between Hitler & Chamberlain are given added tension (because we already know t...
