Most widely held works by Christopher Hilton
Hitler's Olympics : the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games by Christopher Hilton( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Berlin Olympic Games have their 70th anniversary in 2006. Hitler's Olympics creates a vivid account of the disputes, personalities and events of what was one of the largest propaganda exercises in history. The success of black American Owens allowed the Nazis to claim that their policies were not racist--and it was the Americans who were accused of anti-semitism."--Jacket
The wall : the people's story by Christopher Hilton( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hilton, a journalist and writer, has been captivated by Berlin's unique past for three decades, conducting hundreds of interviews there since the Wall came down. Leading world politicians, the American military, the British military, East German border guards and ordinary people on both sides all feature in the book, their memories expertly interwoven into a remarkable, seamless narrative. The result is an extraordinary vivid, occasionally harrowing, sometimes touching story--the best real-life novel you'll ever read
Mayflower : the voyage that changed the world by Christopher Hilton( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While the Pilgrims' dream may not have been realised as they had hoped, their self-determination would inspire generations of aspirant migrants the world over. Their legacy played an important part in precipitating the imperial conflict with Britain after 1763 and would later stand at the core of the American ideal during the centuries following independence. Even the US Constitutions was, arguably, based upon the Puritans' own laws."
Grand Prix century : the first 100 years of the world's most glamorous and dangerous sport by Christopher Hilton( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the greatest stories ever told - a century of men and machines pitted against each other, death riding at their elbow, risking everything to win. In June 2006, Grand Prix racing will be 100 years old. Here, in one action-packed volume, Christopher Hilton celebrates the full span, from the first race, when horses towed the new-fangled cars to the grid, to the awesome technology of today. It will fascinate both the race fan and general readers who will have the human story spread before them like a feast
After the Berlin Wall : putting two Germanys back together again by Christopher Hilton( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 7 May 1945, Grand Admiral Donitz, named in Hitler's will as head of state, authorised the unconditional surrender of all German forces to the Allies. World War II in Europe was at an end. East and West Germany, and East and West Berlin, would remain divided until 1989. By October 1990, however, the two countries were reunited, and the Berlin Reichstag was once again the seat of government. Here, politicians would put East and West back together again, marrying a totalitarian, atheist, communist system with a democratic, Christian, capitalist one. How did this marriage affect the everyday life of ordinary Germans?

It was a much-needed triumph for Margaret Thatcher's government

How Hitler hijacked world sport : the World Cup, the Olympics, the Heavyweight Championship and the Grand Prix by Christopher Hilton( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'"Adolf Hitler understood the importance of sport, and exercised his malign and dangerous influence to try to co-opt it for the Nazi cause. He intended to own the Olympic movement, housing it permanently in Berlin from 1940 in a stadium seating 450,000 people. His hijack of the 1936 Games remains one of sport's most controversial events. Austria was forced to withdraw from the 1938 football World Cup just days before it started because the country no longer existed. The boxing matches between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling in 1936 and 1938 came to represent democracy versus fascism. German technology crushed all comers in Grand Prix racing, as well as the Isle of Man TT. Hitler even set up a government ministry to use physical fitness to prepare the population for war. He understood that sport has many uses: this is how he used it."--Publisher description
The Brawn story : the man and the team that turned Formula 1 upside-down by Christopher Hilton( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ross Brawn became the colossus of Grand Prix racing in 2009 when the team that bears his name won the constructors' title, so prized among the teams and enabled Jenson Button to become World champion. This achievement was unprecedented even by the standards of Formula 1 because, ten months before, the whole team owned by Honda faced almost immediate extinction. Brawn, engineer and master strategist, hand never considered owning a team or even wanted to. He tried to find buyers and in the end faced a simple choice: buy it himself or see it close. He bought it."--Jacket
