In August, 1944, Major Hans Georg Klamroth was tried and executed for treason for his part in the July plot against Hitler. Wibke Bruhns, his youngest daughter, was six years old. Decades later, watching a documentary, she saw images of her father on-screen. "I stare at this man with the empty face. I don't know him. But I can see myself in him... I know I resemble him. I know I wouldn't be here without him. And what do I know about him? Nothing at all." How could her patriotic family succumb to Nazi sympathies? And what made her father finally renounce Hitler? With letters and diaries documenting the story of her family, from the time of Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of the Second World War, she unravels her family's history-- the experience of being German in the last century.--From publisher description

54 by Wu Ming ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Hollywood, Cary Grant has grown weary of cinema's glamour, but Her Majesty's Secret Service will break his malaise with a bizarre diplomatic mission. In Naples, Lucky Luciano fixes horse races and begins to lay the foundation for the global heroin trade. And in Bologna, a bartender searches for true love and his missing communist father. It is 1954--the height of the Cold War--and these three are on a path toward an intersection that will involve the nascent KGB, Joseph McCarthy, Frances Farmer, Parisian lowlifes, Marshal Tito, David Niven, James Bond, and a very special television set called the McGuffin Electric. This book is a political thriller, a comic spy caper, a romance, and a social satire.--From publisher description
1913 : the year before the storm by Florian Illies ( Book )
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A witty yet moving narrative worked up from sketched documentary traces and biographical fragments, 1913 is an intimate cultural portrait of a world that is about to change forever.The stuffy conventions of the nineteenth century are receding into the past, and 1913 heralds a new age of unlimited possibility. Kafka falls in love; Louis Armstrong learns to play the trumpet; a young seamstress called Coco Chanel opens her first boutique; Charlie Chaplin signs his first movie contract; and new drugs like cocaine usher in an age of decadence.Yet everywhere there is the premonition of ruin - the number 13 is omnipresent, and in London, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Trieste, artists take the omen and act as if there were no tomorrow, their brief coincidences of existence telling of a darker future. In a Munich hotel lobby, Rilke and Freud discuss beauty and transience; Proust sets out in search of lost time; and while Stravinsky celebrates the Rite of Spring with industrial cacophony, in Munich an Austrian postcard painter by the name of Adolf Hitler sells his conventional cityscapes. Told with Illies's characteristic mixture of poignant evocation and laconic irony, 1913 is the story of the year that shaped the last century

Napoleon's exile by Patrick Rambaud ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Patrick Rambaud closes his epic trilogy, which began with The Battle, winner of the Prix Goncourt and the Grand Prix Roman de l'Acadrmie Francaise, and The Retreat, with this stunningly intimate look at Napoleon. In 1814 Napoleon is racing back to Paris from the debacle of his Russian invasion. A plot afoot in the capital--to return a royal to the throne--succeeds, and Napoleon's marshals force him to abdicate and go into exile. Octave Senecal, Napoleon's loyal aide and savior and one of Rambaud's marvelous creations, tells the tale of their journey south through the angry, mob-filled countryside to Elba, a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. Here Patrick Rambaud brings to life not the Napoleon of the history books, but Napoleon the man--a man horribly bored by exile, gambling with his mother to pass the time, spearing the occasional tuna with local fishermen, and fretting constantly that secret agents and murderers surround him. He is soon planning his escape, while in France his former soldiers spend their evenings drinking to the return of "l'absent." They won't have long to wait."--Publisher's website
