    schema:reviewBody ""Berlin is a city that has played a major role in world politics since the Nazi era, was made hostage in the Cold War, and continues to be in the spotlight in the modern arena. The Last Division is a detailed and enlightening chronicle of the partitions of the city, starting with the administrative division by the victors against Hitler, focusing on the crisis which began in November 1958 when Khrushchev ordered the Western allies to leave the city and which culminated in the building of the Wall in August 1961, ending with its destruction in 1989." "The tragedy of the Wall which severed a living city and sundered families for generations is seen from many different perspectives: political, diplomatic, military and above all through the experiences of ordinary Berliners and the many refugees who flooded to the West. Both the great international conferences and the dramas behind the scenes are explored, including the personal confrontations between the leadersEisenhower, Macmillan, de Gaulle, Adenauer and Kennedy - and their contests with Khrushchev." "Using newly available documentary evidence, Ann Tusa reveals that the Western Powers had for years made concessions in Berlin which had weakened their own position in the city, threatened its independent survival and doomed any chance of retaliating against the final division by the Wall. The fullest narrative yet gives an account of the hour-by-hour construction of the Wall and how Macmillan shot grouse in Scotland and Kennedy sailed off Cape Cod while Berliners fought their own police for a chance to tear the Wall down."--BOOK JACKET." ;
