Reading list, 1938

Shirer_diary I dug out my old copy of William L. Shirer's "Berlin Diary" the other day and was pleasantly surprised to see how much more I understood of what he was saying after going through all these 1938 newspapers. What had once seemed like a tedious rehash loaded with unfamiliar names took on new life after I immersed myself in The Times' daily coverage of European affairs.

For those who are interested in this era, I would strongly recommend "Berlin Diary" as an illuminating commentary on what's being posted on the Daily Mirror.

Another interesting account, by the way, is Howard K. Smith's "Last Train From Berlin," a book I discovered at a thrift store in Seattle many years ago. I'm sure my copy is in a box somewhere around the Daily Mirror H.Q. I'll have to look for it.
