Through three distinct stages of his life the author narrates his compelling story through the complex and fascinating prism of an Austro-German heritage and psyche, transposed onto an English environment and upbringing. This Autobiography charts a life from 1938 till 2014 and takes stock, with forensic and contemplative detail, of 20th- and 21st-century politics and their wider implications seen today. Now in his seventies von Maltzahn looks back. The book is a living testimony to a life that has witnessed the world, its global political structure and his own immediate environment, change immeasurably. These pages serve as a personal reconciliation and a means by which to understand this ever changing world and his place within it.

    An original approach from an original author which weaves personal challenges and not inconsiderable achievements with a wider national and international narrative. A refreshing and entertaining book offering a real insight into the European dimension from the perspective of an Austrian birth to a British gentleman.It reconciles the dilemma of our time by concluding it is possible to be a confirmed European but not want to be part of the EU project. Made more pertinent still by the horrors, perpetrated by Russia, which we are seeing in present day Europe.
