Review: Thunder At Twilight: Vienna 1913/1914

User Review  - Goodreads

A lively account of the year in which Vienna was filled with revolutionaries, both cultural and political: Franz Kafka, Sigmund Freud, Adolf Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Tito, and Gavrilo Princip. Go back in time, drop a small nuclear bomb on Vienna, and watch as the 20th century fails to happen. Read full review

User Review  - Kate Lapinski - Goodreads

Read this on the way to, and in Austria. It is rich, detailed and personal in a way that only the best history books are. Made 100 years ago feel like it was today. Totally engrossing. Read full review
