The recent film "Bridge of Spies" starring Tom Hanks tells the story of a lawyer entrusted with negotiating the release of an American spy plane pilot shot down over the Soviet Union in exchange for a KGB spy. The exchange took place on Berlin's Glienicke Bridge. The film itself was partly created in the Babelsberg Film Studios in Potsdam. Both feature in the guidebook ONLY IN BERLIN available here: http://www.onlyinguides.com/books.php?bookid=4

Just watched the film "Operation Anthropoid" about the assassination of high-ranking Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich by Czech patriots during the Second World War. The Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Prague, where the patriots met their end, is now a poignant memorial to their bravery. The full story is told in the guidebook ONLY IN PRAGUE available here: http://www.onlyinguides.com/books.php?bookid=3

Fellow offbeat traveller Rich Kaszeta favorably reviews "Only in Edinburgh" at OffbeatEats.org. He describes it as "a particularly useful and detailed guide...replete with all sorts of little details that are easy to miss" including a cemetery for soldiers' dogs, an abandoned railway tunnel used by cyclists, and a factory churning out red paper poppies for Remembrance Day.

A good review for ONLY IN PARIS from Janine Marsh at thegoodlifefrance.com. She writes that "the quirky, the strange, the surprising and the downright odd are all here and it makes for utterly riveting reading". The book has also inspired Janine to visit the Musée Marmottan, a private museum tucked away in the 16th Arrondissement, which boasts the world's best collection of works by Monet and the painting that inspired the word 'Impressionism'.

A great review for the new "Only in Edinburgh" from my travel-blogging colleague Stuart Forster at go-eat-do.com.
