    When Philip Oltermann was 16 his parents decided to move from Germany to England. In this light-hearted analysis of the relationship between the two countries, he combines his own teenage impressions of cultural differences with eight examples of Anglo- German encounters from the last 200 years - including Heine's reaction to William Cobbett's angry swearing and modern Germans' obsession with an old music-hall sketch.
