The first English biography of a man that has affected some of the most dramatic and historic events of the 20th century, Otto von Habsburg

Refusing to support Hitler, developing a close friendship with F.D. Roosevelt, and becoming a member of European Parliament, he's led quite a fascinating life. Today at ninty, he continues to be active, being one of the strongest advocates for a unified Europe.
