The Berlin Wall : a world divided, 1961-1989 by Fred Taylor( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One morning in 1961, the residents of East Berlin found themselves cut off from family, friends and jobs in the West by a tangle of barbed wire that ruthlessly cut a city of four million in two. Within days the barbed wire became a 103-mile-long wall guarded by three hundred watchtowers. A physical manifestation of the Cold War that would stand for nearly thirty years, the Berlin Wall was the fault line between East and West on which rested the fate of all humanity. Historian Taylor weaves together official history, archival materials and personal accounts to tell the complete story of the Wall's rise and fall, from the postwar political tensions that created a divided Berlin to the internal and external pressures that led to the Wall's demise. He also explores the geopolitical ramifications, as well as the impact the Wall had on ordinary lives, still felt today.--From publisher description

Exorcising Hitler : the occupation and denazification of Germany by Fred Taylor( Book )
24 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
British historian Taylor (The Berlin Wall) surveys the occupation policies of the Allied victors, showing a variegated picture: brutal in the Soviet zone, relatively humane in the American, British, and French sectors, but everywhere a landscape of hunger, cold, and--in German eyes--humiliation. Taylor also examines how the efforts to bring to account millions of ex-Nazi Party members were erratic, corrupt, and ineffective
The Berlin Wall : 13 August 1961-9 November 1989 by Fred Taylor( Book )
37 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The appearance of a hastily-constructed barbed wire entanglement through the heart of Berlin during the night of 12-13 August 1961 was both dramatic and unexpected. This book reveals the strange and chilling story of how the initial barrier system was conceived, then extended, adapted and strengthened over 30 years
The downfall of money : Germany's hyperinflation and the destruction of the middle class by Fred Taylor( Book )
14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A hundred years ago, many theorists believed...just as they did at the beginning of our twenty-first century...that the world had reached a state of economic perfection, a never before seen human interdependence that would lead to universal growth and prosperity. Then, as now, the German mark was one of the most trusted currencies in the world. Yet the early years of the Weimar Republic in Germany witnessed the most calamitous meltdown of a developed economy in modern times. The Downfall of Money will tell anew the dramatic story of the hyperinflation that saw the mark...worth 4.2 to the dollar in 1914...plunge until it traded at over 4 trillion to 1 by the autumn of 1923. The story of the Weimar Republic's financial crisis clearly resonates today, when the world is again anxious about what money is, what it means, and how we can judge if its value is true. It is a trajectory of events uncomfortably relevant for our own uncertain world. Frederick Taylor...one of the leading historians of Germany writing today... explores the causes of the crisis and what the collapse meant to ordinary people and traces its connection to the dark decades that followed. Drawing on a wide range of sources and accessibly presenting vast amounts of research, The Downfall of Money is a timely and chilling exploration of a haunting episode in history"

Forsvaret for at Dresden blev bombet. Siden afslutningen af 2.Verdenskrig har der været megen debat om, hvorvidt det tyske folk også blev ofre, da verdenskrigen nærmede sig sin afslutning. En berigtigelse heraf betyder dog ikke , at de allieredes indsats var krigsforbryderisk
