Guenter Grass, one of Germany’s best-known writers and a Nobel Prize winner, has died at the age of 87.
He served in the country’s military in World War 2 and wrote arguably his most famous work, 'The Tin Drum', in the 1950s. Much of his work was focused on the horrors of war and Nazi Germany.
In 1999, he was awarded the Nobel prize for literature for portraying the “forgotten face” of history.
