Außer Dienst: Eine Bilanz - Helmut Schmidt This is an example of humanistic enlightenment, of someone who has lost the chains of religious or idealogical fervour and has observed history since the 1930s till now. German as well European and Global events are put in the correct light, the light of what actually happened, and not what the media or the idealogists on both sides want to make you remember.

Like everybody else in Germany, we wish we would have more politicians and representatives of a state with this integrity and intelligence.

A must read book if you want to understand Europe and Germany since the WW2.
