‘Hammerstein oder der Eigensinn’ is a brilliant and fascinating new book by Hans Magnus Enzensberger… It is kind of a documentary about General Kurt von Hammerstein who opposed Hitler and stepped down as a general when Hitler assumed power… The book provides an erudite insight into a fascinating character… The book is also interesting from a stylistic point of view, meandering between factual research and fictitious posthumous interviews (“Totengespräche”)… Well worth a second read…
