Most widely held works by Klaus Kochmann
Hitler's willing executioners : ordinary Germans and the Holocaust by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in German and held by 154 libraries worldwide
Daniel Jonah Goldhagen has revisited a question that history has come to treat as settled, and his researchers have led him to the inescapable conclusion that none of the established answers holds true. That question is: "How could the Holocaust happen?" His own response is a new exploration of those who carried out the Holocaust and of German society and its ingrained anti-semitism - and it demands a fundamental revision of our thinking about the years 1933-1945
Inside terrorism by Bruce Hoffman( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in German and held by 127 libraries worldwide
Neben W. Laqueurs jüngst aktualisiertem Standardwerk (BA 1/99) kann diese konzise und sorgfältige Studie des Terrorismusexperten der amerikanischen RAND-Corporation beanspruchen, die gegebene Materialfülle verdichtet zu haben, um den Blick auf wenige Erscheinungen und Tendenzen zu lenken. Es sind dies ein religiös motivierter Terrorismus - das Bombenattentat von Oklahoma 1995 hat die US-amerikanische Aufmerksamkeit gegenüber den eigenen, von weißem Suprematiedenken und christlichem Fanatismus durchdrungenen Milizen auf unglückselige Weise stimuliert - und vor allem der staatlich unterstützte Terrorismus in den internationalen Beziehungen. Wie P. Waldmann (BA 1/99) widmet Hoffman sich dem Verhältnis von Terrorismus und Medien. Terroristische Aktivitäten sollen für die ausübende Gruppe Aufmerksamkeit, Bestätigung und Anerkennung erzeugen - die Massenmedien werden zum öffentlichen Spiegel und Kolporteur der Anliegen
Frontsoldaten : the German soldier in World War II by Stephen G Fritz( Book )

Stalingrad by Antony Beevor( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 17 libraries worldwide
On August 23, 1942, Hitler's 16th Panzer Division halted on the banks of the Volga. To their right, the city of Stalingrad blazed from the first of General von Richthofen's air raids, which ultimately killed 40,000 civilians. Many German soldiers thought the war against Russia was won. But in Stalin's namesake city on the Volga, Hitler had chosen the wrong target. The battle of Stalingrad would be the most pitiless, and perhaps the most important, battle in history. When the fighting was over, the world would begin to believe for the first time that Hitler could be defeated

The red count : the life and times of Harry Kessler by Laird McLeod Easton( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in German and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"The life of Count Harry Kessler (1868-1937), the famous Anglo-German art patron, writer, and activist, offers a perspective on the tumultous transformation of art and politics that took place in modern Europe between 1890 and 1930. In the first half of his career Kessler was one of the most ardent and well known champions of aesthetic modernism in Imperial Germany, becoming a friend and patron to pioneering artists and writers of his day, most notably French sculptor Aristide Maillol, Belgian architect Henry van de Velde, English theater designer Gordon Craig, and Austrian poet and playwright Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and - in his capacity as director of the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Weimar and vice-president of the German Artists League - serving as a spokesman and lightning rod for embattled modern art. In the aftermath of the First World War, in which he served as a soldier, propagandist, and secret agent, Kessler embarked on a public career as a committed internationalist and pacifist, a stance that led ultimately to his exile from Germany upon the Nazi seizure of power." "Making use of the recently discovered portions of Kessler's extensive diaries, among the most remarkable journals ever written, Laird Easton explains the reasons for this startling metamorphosis, showing for the first time the continuities between Kessler's prewar aestheticism and his postwar politics and highlighting his importance within the larger history of the rise of modern art and politics. This lively narrative, the first English-language biography of Harry Kessler, provides a portrait of the man who W.H. Arden called "a crown witness of our times.""--Jacket
Der Untergang des Römischen Weltreichs by P. J Heather( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in German and English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
German resistance against Hitler : the search for allies abroad, 1938-1945 by Klemens Von Klemperer( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in German and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Measured by conventional standards of diplomacy, the foreign ventures of the German Resistance ended in failure. The Allied agencies, notably the British Foreign Office and the US State Department, were ill prepared to deal with the unorthodox approaches of the Widerstand. Ultimately, the Allies' policy of 'absolute silence', the Grand Alliance with the Soviet Union, and the demand for 'unconditional surrender' pushed the war to its final denouement, disregarding the German Resistance
Eine Porzellanscherbe im Graben : eine deutsche Flüchtlingskindheit by Martha Whalen Kent( Book )

Gemeinsam haben sie ein einmaliges Dokument verfasst, das Aufruf und Vorbild zugleich ist, den Dialog der Kulturen entschlossen aufzunehmen."--Verlag

Pius XII : Der Papst, der geschwiegen hat by John Cornwell( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in German and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Während sich Europa auf den Zweiten Weltkrieg zubewegt, wird im März 1939 in Rom ein neuer Papst gewählt. Die Wahl des Konklaves fällt auf Eugenio Pacelli. Der Kardinal, der sich fortan Pius XII. nennt, blickt auf eine steile Karriere als Kirchenmann zurück. Bereits das Konkordat mit dem Deutschen Reich vom 20. Juli 1933 trägt seine Handschrift. Es verschaffte dem NS-Regime wertvolle innen- und außenpolitische Anerkennung. Während des Krieges steuert Pius XII. einen Kurs strikter Neutralität, selbst dann noch, als sich die Niederlage der Achsenmächte abzeichnet. Er vermeidet jede klare Verurteilung der Judenverfolgung, über deren Ausmaß er weitgehend unterrichtet ist

Hitler 1936-1945 Band 2 by Klaus Kochmann( file )
2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Ein epochales Werk, ein Höhepunkt der Geschichtsschreibung Das auf zwei Bände angelegte Werk des britischen Historikers Ian Kershaw ist beides: eine Biographie Hitlers und eine Geschichte der NS-Zeit. Es untersucht eindrucksvoll die historischen Kräfte, die einen trägen österreichischen Träumer in einen Diktator mit immenser Macht verwandelten. Kershaw vertritt den Standpunkt, dass die Ursachen für Hitlers Macht nicht nur in den Taten des Diktators gesucht werden müssen, sondern auch (und ganz besonders) in den sozialen Verhältnissen eines Staates, der es ihm erlaubte, alle institutionellen und moralischen Grenzen zu überschreiten
