A balanced and heartfelt

A balanced and heartfelt view of Fritz's contemporaneous world spanning from pre-Weimar to the new FDR -- and all the formative tragedy and drama in between. Fritz gives sense also to what it means to be a conscientious citizen, as he embodies for both America and Europe in an exemplary way. I reveled in the fascinating glimpses and insights in his telling of his experience, which of course is the more nuanced view of history one misses either in the CNN Headline-ism that we are confronted with today so often or the narrow focus on the micro-minutiae of overspecialized history books.
