'An entertaining exploration of the truth behind European stereotypes.' - The Irish Times

Heaven is where the police are British,
the chefs Italian, the mechanics German,
the lovers French,
and it’s all organized by the Swiss.

Hell is where the police are German,
the chefs are British,

RTÉ’s Tony Connelly has produced an intriguing, thought-provoking, hilarious and sometimes poignant grand tour through European stereotypes.

From the bailouts to the Euro-crisis, from the rise of Frau Merkel to the dalliances of the French presidents, Connelly does a brilliant job skewering the lies and truths of European stereotypes.

A lot has happened in the nearly five years since Tony Connelly published the first edition of Don’t Mention the Wars to great acclaim. In this revised and updated edition, Connelly revisits every chapter and explores the news and the rich parade of events that have happened in that time.
