TRUE TO BOTH MY SELVES is an extraordinary account of a childhood disjointed by country and by war. Curiously mirroring her English grandmother, who married a German hairdresser in London and was then expelled to Germany following the First World War, Katrin Fitzherbert was born in Germany in 1936 and lived under Hitler's regime until, at the age of eleven, she was suddenly 'repatriated' to an England she had never known. There she had to forget her German father and the German language. This is the story of three generations of remarkable women, and their struggle for survival and integrity as individuals in times divided by war.

    'An intensely moving account, told with an honesty and integrity that inspires respect and understanding
    'A riveting account of growing up as a Nazi in the Second World War and coping with defeat, disillusion and dual nationality
    'A remarkable book by any standards
