Were things really better in the good old days! Only if you were healthy, wealthy and male. For most, life in London was one of grinding poverty, binge drinking, prostitution and gun crime. The 19th century was a time of growing awareness of the existence of an impoverished underclass - a terrifying demi-monde of criminals, tarts and no-hope low lifes. Gilda O'Neill explores the teeming underbelly dwelling in the fog-bound streets, rat-infested slums, common lodging house, boozers, penny gaffs and brothels in the heart of the greatest empire the world has ever seen, revealing that Victoria's was actually a most unruly reign

Stalingrad by Antony Beevor( Recording )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The battle of Stalingrad was the psychological turning point of World War II; it also changed the face of modern warfare. Historians and reviewers worldwide have hailed Antony Beevor's magisterial Stalingrad as the definitive account of World War II's most harrowing battle. In August 1942, Hitler's huge Sixth Army reached the city that bore Stalin's name. In the five month siege that followed, the Russians fought to hold Stalingrad at any cost, then, in an astonishing reversal, encircled and trapped their Nazi enemy. This battle for the ruins of a city cost more than a million lives. Stalingrad conveys the experience of soldiers on both sides as they fought in inhuman conditions, and of civilians trapped on an urban battlefield. [The author] has interviewed survivors and discovered completely new material in a wide range of German and Soviet archives, including reports of prisoner interrogations and reports of desertions and executions.-Back cover
