“A remarkable story of adventure and passion, tragedy and courage set against the backdrop of occupied Czechoslovakia and World War II.” —Václav Havel
From former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright comes a moving and thoughtful memoir of her formative years in Czechoslovakia during the tumult of Nazi occupation, World War II, fascism, and the onset of the Cold War. An intensely personal journey into the past that offers vital lessons for the future, Prague Winter combines the intimacy of an autobiography with the drama of an exciting and well-told story—all underpinned by the gravity and intelligence of a serious work of history. The result is a highly readable and incisive work filled with tragedy and triumph, a resonant narrative informed by Albright’s remarkable life experience and her characteristic candor in speaking hard truths.

Fantastic blend of touching personal history and world history lesson! Sad to have finished it.
A must read for anyone interested in understanding WWII and its legacy. This story is an engaging mix of history and the impact of the war on a the author's family. We can only hope that more of our world leaders have the thoughtful humanitarianism based in realism and balance exhibited by Ms Albright--if so the world would be a better place!
Straight talk from a great lady.
Sec. Albright writes like she speaks, straight and to the point, with observations so relevant in today's world.
