The centre-piece of this memoir by Christopher Mallaby, former British Ambassador in Germany and France, is the unification of Germany in 1990 - the culmination of years of work by he and his colleagues. As Ambassador he held different views from the Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. He saw unification as the key to ending the Cold War with a peaceful victory for the West and the liberation of millions in eastern and central Europe from Soviet control. She did not like the Germans and opposed unification. Christopher Mallaby writes vividly of many other people, places and events: He and his wife were a young couple in Moscow in the Cuban Missile crisis, and knew they might be destroyed by American nuclear weapons. Mallaby explains why Khrushchev took such a huge risk and why he yielded to President Kennedy.
