Berlin: Portrait of a City Through the Centuries

Berlin: Portrait of a City Through the Centuries - Rory MacLean

Not what I thought it was going to be.  This reads like a poor attempt at fiction, providing snapshots of various historical figures throughout time.  Very little about the actual history of Berlin through time, and heavily focused on the 20th and 21st centuries.
