Review

"This is a story that shows us how the nastiest regimes are composed of real people. Judd has taken some unlikely ingredients...and, brilliantly, fashioned them into a touching, poignant story." (Daily Telegraph (UK))

"A haunting tribute to a near-forgotten figure... Judd has complete command of the subtleties of character, ambition and emotional ambiguity in extreme circumstances-- an unusual and intelligent treatment of the Third Reich." (Evening Standard (Book of the Year))

"Judd's engrossing tale, rooted in actuality, teases out the mixed responses that can exist between, and within, people." (Sunday Times UK (Book of the Year))

"A fascinating and imaginative exploration of a seminal episode of 20th-century history." (Irish Examiner)

"Fascinating...if one of the hallmarks of a good novel is that the characters do not remain static but are subtly transformed by events, then this is a very good novel indeed." (Sunday Telegraph (UK))

"A highly accomplished novel [with an] intricate and superbly crafted plot. In a small compass, Judd manages to bring home the reality of the war with remarkable vividness. There is not a spare word here. If you start, you'll finish." (The Spectator)

“Alan Judd has written a quite superb account about a vital point in world history, touched by all those issues common to us all: love, sex, doubt, courage, weakness and loyalty. What does a good man do when he finds that he is sworn to do evil? The Kaiser's Last Kiss is an extraordinarily fine book, rich in wisdom, and blessed with sparkling historical erudition." (The Irish Times)
