The crusaders by Stefan Heym( Book )

63 editions published between 1950 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americká skupina speciálního oddílu pro propagandu se dostává asi měsíc po začátku invase do nejprudších bojů, které se rozpoutaly na pobřeží Normandie. Prodělává osvobození Paříže, Lucemburska, bitvu v Ardennách, obkličování Ruhrské oblasti a konec války, první dobu v okupovaném Německu. V jednotce nejsou jen prostí hrdinové, ale i kořistníci, kteří využívají války k obohacení, šmelinaři s majetkem armády. V patách fronty postupují exponenti amerického kapitálu, navazující spojení nejprve s francouzským, pak i německým kapitálem. Hrdina dokumentárního románu se pozvolna mění z pasivního intelektuála v uvědomělého odpůrce zlořádů, kapitalismu a fašismu

"Having failed his examinations at college, Medza returns to his village in the Southern Cameroons in some trepidation. But to his surprise he finds that as a scholar (even a failed one) his prestige is immense. A young woman has run off with a man from another tribe: so Medza is entrusted with the delicate task of retrieving her. When he reaches her village he has to wait for her return from another adventure, so he stays with his uncle, who passes him off as a prodigy of learning. Medza is entertained, loaded with gifts (most of which his uncle filches), consulted like an oracle, and even---much to his surprise---married. But his stay in Kala has to come to an end and he returns to his own part of the country only to find himself unable to come to terms with his family and their way of life."--Back cover

"When penniless businessman Mr Bedford retreats to the Kent coast to write a play, he meets by chance the brilliant Dr Cavor, an absent-minded scientist on the brink of developing a material that blocks gravity.

With Bedford motivated by money and Cavor by the desire for knowledge, the two embark on the expedition. But neither are prepared for what they find - a world of freezing nights, boiling days and sinister alien life, on which they may be trapped forever."--Jacket
