1864 : the forgotten war that shaped modern Europe by Tom Buk-Swienty( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Battle of Dybbøl, 1864. Prussian troops lay siege to an outpost in the far south of Denmark. The conflict is over control of the Duchy of Schleswig, recently annexed by Denmark to the alarm of its largely German-speaking inhabitants. Danish troops make a valiant attempt to hold out but are overrun by the might of the Prussian onslaught. Of little strategic importance, the struggle for Schleswig foreshadowed the same forces that, fifty years later, would tear Europe apart. Prussia's victory would not only rejuvenate its nascent militarism, but help it claim leadership of the new German Empire. Told in rich detail through first-hand accounts, Tom Buk-Swienty's magisterial account of the Schleswig conflict tells the story of this pivotal war. 1864 shows how a minor regional conflict foreshadowed the course of diplomacy that led to the First World War and brutally presaged the industrialised future of warfare. But most of all, in its human detail, from touching letters between husbands and wives to heartbreaking individual stories of loss, 1864 is a gripping, epic human drama that shows the effect all wars have on the soldiers, on families and on the individual men and women who must live its realities

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in Danish and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forlaget skriver: Kaptajn Dinensen - til døden os skiller er andet selvstændige bind af Tom Buk-Swientys biografi om Karen Blixens eventyrlige far, Wilhelm Dinesen (1845-95). Det er de store eventyrs tid for kaptajn Dinesen. Han er på vej ind i det amerikanske vildnis, hvor han som pelsjæger omgivet af indianere søger heling efter ungdomsårenes krigsoplevelser. To år senere kaldes Dinesen hjem til familien i Danmark, men snart hvirvles han ind i den russisk-tyrkiske krig, 1877-78. Det efterlader ham i et sjæleligt mørke. Med den 24-årige Ingeborg Westenholz vender lyset tilbage, og efter en intens kurtisering flytter det nygifte par til Rungstedlund, hvor de stifter familie. Dinesen høster anerkendelse som forfatter og vælges ind i Folketinget. Men under den glansfulde overflade kæmper kaptajnen en stadig mere desperat kamp mod sine indre dæmoner. Tom Buk-Swienty er fulgt i hælene på Wilhelm Dinesen til Wisconsins dybe skove, til Tyrkiet og hjem igen til arkiver og gamle dragkister med private breve. Resultatet er en rejse igennem anden halvdel af det 19. århundredes turbulente historie og en fantastisk fortælling om Dinesens romantiske og tragiske liv. Det er historien om fædre og sønner, uro i blodet, krig, kærlighed og store danske slægter

"Two brothers, Laust and Peter, grow up poor but happy in the Danish countryside. Both boys fall in love with the adorable Inge, a local proprietor's daughter, who in turns loves Peter for his sensitivity and intellect, and Laust for his strength and drive. Following victories in the First Schleswig-Holstein War of 1848-50 and in utter disregard of a treaty signed with the major powers of Europe, Denmark's political powers spark a second War. Peter and Laust, whose own father died from wounds caused by a German bullet in 1850, quickly volunteer for the army. 150 years later the maladjusted Claudia inhabits the same area. Forced to accept a job as an aide for the 100-year-old Baron at the manor, Claudia discovers Inge's forgotten diary, a tale of thousands of young men that sacrificed their lives in a pointless war."--Container
