Item Description...
Book Sense March 2008 Notable Book Pick. Joseph Goebbels is fuming. It's the mid-1930s and the Nazi Minister of Propoganda has a nice little racket going. He and his cohorts are allowing Jews to slip out of Germany in return for 80 percent of their assets. But longtime Nazi party member Klaus Lehmann, the Chief of the German Police, is too much of a prig to let him get away with it. And given that Lehman was one of Hitler's earliest supporters, he's virtually untouchable. In the meantime, British Intelligence is going around in circles. Someone in Germany is sending them messages in a code that hasn't been used since World War I. When it was first published in 1941 in the U.S., A Toast to Tomorrow, along with its predecessor, Drink to Yesterday, was heralded by famed critic Anthony Boucher as "a single long and magnificent novel of drama, intrigue and humor."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Better than Ambler  Mar 29, 2004
I have been reading the fine novels of Alan Furst, and they
remind me of Manning Coles more than the more commonly
mentioned inspiration, Eric Ambler. I read "A Toast To
Tomorrow", then its predecessor, "Drink to Yesterday", and
preferred the former, though they're both pretty good. I liked
the distinction between the German civilians and the Nazis, as
another reviewer mentions. There is also a certain amount of
plausible humor, which I liked, not the terrible James Bond
"movie humor" (can't blame Ian Fleming for that, though). Also
like another reviewer, I find myself coming back to this book
again and again....It's very good!
Pray Silence  Apr 7, 2002
'Pray Silence' is the title under which I purchased this book some thirty five years ago. It is a sequel to 'Drink to Yesterday' and the present title is possibly more apt.
Why should I want to write a review after all these years?
I found the first book, in what is quite a long series, to be a little stiff in style, but this, the sequel moves at a fair pace and is much easier to read in consequence. All of the books in the series stand alone although they employ the same central character, more often than not in a leading role. This second book in the series will make you want to enjoy more of the author's work.
The genre is basic spy with additions, but if you don't like spy stories don't be put off. During those thirty five years I have read the book at least once a year even though I know it virtually off by heart. I even know where most of the missprints are in my old copy, but they still come as a surprise, I get so engrossed with the story!
Why reading can sometimes lead to wonderful moments.  Feb 8, 2001
Toast to Tomorrow is best read by first reading its more somber prequel, Drink to Yesterday. Once you've finished the first book immediately pick up A Toast to Tomorrow and read the first chapter to enjoy one of the great funny moments in fiction. It's high adventure combined with great wit and a book I've pushed into literally hundreds of very satisified hands. It's also remarkable in that it was published during World War II (but before the U.S. entered the war) and the authors draw a very careful distinction between German civilians and Nazis.
A useful period piece about the rise of Nazi Germany  Feb 28, 1999
This book is the sequel to "Drink to Yesterday" which was about English spies in Germany at the close or WWI. This book starts just after the previous book ends and runs to roughly July 1938.

The protagonist awakes in a German military hospital with no memory of his previous life. Since he was rescued from the North sea it is assumed he is a sailor, but he has no recolection. The protagonist lives through the disintegration and collapse of Germany and the revolutions of 1918-1919. The book follows his career as Germany staggers through the twenties and into the Nazi era. The protagonist becomes a Nazi and rises quickly in the hierarcy, becoming police cheif in Berlin. At the time of the burning of the Reichstag the protagonist realizes that he really is a british intellegenc agent, and he takes a good long look at his compatriots and does not like what he sees.

The book is relativley straitforward on the nature of the Nazi officials and the basis of their idealogy, and this makes up the plot of the last half of the book.

The book is good as adventure, good as history (at least the first half) and a fast fun read. It covers a lot of ground that people forget
