10 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in German and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Eleven leading filmmakers collaborated on this protest against Fascist tendencies in West Germany by reflecting on the tragic events of autumn 1977, when public official Hanns Martin Schleyer was kidnapped and murdered by the Baader-Meinhof group, whose members mysteriously died in prison. The contents of this quasi-documentary, omnibus film range from an elegiac sequence of the burial of the prisoners to newsreel clips of Rommel's cortege and a fictitious argument among TV executives about a controversial production of Antigone. In the amazing Fassbinder sequence, he interviews his mother, who had endorsed the dictatorship, then physically abuses his boyfriend. Political history and film history intersect in this dynamic film that deftly combines art and politics."--Distributor website

"For his first commission, infantry lieutenant Drogo is stationed at a remote desert garrison on the mist-shrouded border of the North Kingdom. Filling their days with endless drilling, the soldiers of Fortezza Bastiani spend the long nights wondering about an enemy no one has ever seen. As the days stretch into months, the strain of waiting for attack takes its toll on Drago's comrades: sadistic major Mattis, sardonic Lieutenant Simeon, cynical medic Rovine, and humiliated Captain Hortiz, who lives with the shame of having once sounded the alarm against an attack that vanished before anyone else could see."--Container
