The Berlin Wall : a world divided, 1961-1989 by Fred Taylor( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,590 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

Exorcising Hitler : the occupation and denazification of Germany by Fred Taylor( Book )

30 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,354 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 downfall of money : Germany's hyperinflation and the destruction of the middle class by Fred Taylor( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and German and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A hundred years ago, many theorists believed ... that the world had reached a state of economic perfection, a never-before-seen human interdependence that would lead to universal growth and prosperity. At the time, 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 collapse of a developed economy in modern times. [This book explores] 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"--Dust jacket flap

Dresden : Tuesday, 13 February 1945 by Fred Taylor( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At 9.51 p.m. on Tuesday 13 February 1945, Dresden's air-raid sirens sounded as they had done many times in the previous five years. For Desdeners, such warnings were almost always false alarms, but this one was different. Ten minutes later the first marker flares were dropped by Mosquitos of 627 squadron. No searchlights probed the skies above the unprotected target city; the guns had mostly been moved East to counter the Russian advance. By the next morning, 796 RAF Lancasters and 311 USAAF Flying Fortresses had dropped more than 4,500 tons of high explosives and incendiary devices. At least 25,000 inhabitants (possibly many more) had perished in the terrifying firestorm, and thirteen square miles of the city's historic centre, including incalculable quantities of treasure and works of art, lay in ruins. It was Ash Wednesday 1945." "This book is the first serious reappraisal for more than twenty years of an event that lives in the popular memory with Guernica and Hiroshima as a by-word for the horror of twentieth-century air warfare. Frederick Taylor has drawn on archives and primary sources only accessible since the fall of the East German regime, together with British and American records, and has also talked to Allied aircrew (now mostly in their eighties) and the city's survivors, whether Jews working as slave labourers in the munitions and radar factories, members of the German armed services, refugees fleeing the Russian advance from the East, or ordinary citizens of Dresden. In doing so he has created the most complete portrait ever attempted of the city, its people, and those involved in its fate."--BOOK JACKET

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.
