Fascinating reading: first-hand impressions of a British professional soldier during a ten month stay in Berlin (preceded by his impressions during the trip on the continent through the Rhine, Frankfurt, Leipzig en route to the Capitol city) during the 1830s. The second half of the book contains his impressions in Paris during "the crisis of 1839." Wonderful insights from a contemporary European.
