"Robert Teigrob’s lively and interesting work examines William Lyon Mackenzie King’s 1937 visit to Hitler’s Germany. Written with authority and originality, this book contributes to the internationalization of Canadian history and to the transnational history of Nazi Germany and World War II."
Michael Dawson, Department of History, St. Thomas University:
"Crisp and evocative, and with the potential to impact both a scholarly and general audience, Four Days in Hitler’s Germany shifts seamlessly between King’s activities in 1937 and commentary on postwar Berlin, adding depth and poignancy to the narrative."
