I would like to recommend Greg Mitchell’s ‘The Tunnels: The Untold Story of the Escapes under the Berlin Wall.” Mitchell focuses on remarkable individuals living in the divided capital: the cyclist who became the most wanted man in the DDR, the informers who betrayed the tunnellers’ efforts, and even tales of romance blossoming in the most unlikely of locations. A most gripping read, as we approach the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Wall!
