In Christopher Hilton's widely acclaimed study of the Berlin Wall and its demise, 'the background is the story of the wall itself and the foreground is what it did to ordinary people'. Drawing on the first- hand testimony of those who lived in the divided city or were engaged in its administration - from Eastern border guards to Western diplomatic aides - Hilton constructs a compelling account of the victims of the Wall and its impact on life in Berlin.
