You can read the full details about the book below:
Best-selling novelist Harris has visited WWII before and this time he fronts the story with an Englishman and a German struggling against the Nazis. As Chamberlain’s plane judders over the Channel and Hitler’s train steams relentlessly south from Berlin, two young men travel with secrets of their own. Hugh Legat is one of Chamberlain’s private secretaries and Paul Hartmann is a German diplomat and member of the anti-Hitler resistance. Great friends at Oxford before Hitler came to power, they haven’t seen one another since they were last in Munich six years earlier. Now, as the future of Europe hangs in the balance, their paths are destined to cross again.
Munich was published by Penguin Random House.
