A city devastated by Allied bombs, divided by a Wall, then reunited and reborn, Berlin today resonates with the ghosts of its past. No other city has repeatedly been so powerful and fallen so low, shaped and defined by individual imaginations. Through vivid portraits spanning five centuries, Rory MacLean reveals the varied and rich history of Berlin, from its brightest to its darkest moments. We encounter an ambitious prostitute refashioning herself as a princess, a Scottish mercenary fighting for the Prussian Army, Marlene Dietrich flaunting her sexuality, and Hitler fantasizing about the mega-city Germania.
