Hitler 1936 - 1945 by Ian Kershaw( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in German and held by 141 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
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
The fall of the Roman Empire : a new history of Rome and the Barbarians by P. J Heather( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in German and English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"The death of the Roman Empire is one of the perennial mysteries of world history. Now, in this groundbreaking book, Peter Heather proposes a stunning new solution: Rome generated its own nemesis. Centuries of imperialism turned the neighbors it called barbarians into an enemy capable of dismantling the Empire that had dominated their lives for so long." "In The Fall of the Roman Empire, he explores the extraordinary success story that was the Roman Empire and uses a new understanding of its continued strength and enduring limitations to show how Europe's barbarians, transformed by centuries of contact with Rome on every possible level, eventually pulled it apart." "Peter Heather convincingly argues that the Roman Empire was not on the brink of social or moral collapse. What brought it to an end were the barbarians."--BOOK JACKET

Killing rage by Eamon Collins( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
"No paramilitary 'volunteer' has ever told the full story of what he has done for his cause. Eamon Collins is different. Not only is he, by his own immensely detailed account, responsible for five killings, but he planned many more. His 'South Down Command' (though, on this occasion, he was not personally involved) was partly responsible for the largest massacre of RUC men in the history of the state, when nine constables died in a mortar attack on Newry police station. Not himself a trigger-man, he was in some ways more cold-bloodedly responsible than the actual killers, for he was the 'Intelligence Officer', the man who spotted, tracked and arranged the murder of the local IRA's victims. He would spend months planning such killings; and in one case, the victim was a colleague of his in the customs service, whose children Collins had met. He is also unusual in his ruthless honesty, being the first ex-activist willing to expose so truthfully the banality and tragic waste of 'the armed struggle'. He offers the reader an irreplaceable portrait of how anger becomes politicized and channelled into the service of revolutionary nationalism: of how it becomes 'killing rage', in which terrible things are rationalized, such as the murder of lone, elderly RUC men a few months away from retirement simply because they are easy to hit; the blowing up of telephone engineers who happen to be members of the Territorial Army; the shooting of men who serve part-time in the UDR. And how dreadful 'mistakes' such as the killing of a harmless Catholic mistaken for an RUC detective, or that of a ten-year-old boy by a car bomb in a small town, come to be reckoned against the greater good of Irish freedom."--Jacket

Hitler, 1936-45 : nemesis by Ian Kershaw( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
"Summer 1936: the eyes of the world were trained on Berlin, elaborately decked out for the Olympic Games. Aside from the swastikas unfurled inside and outside the massive stadium, visitors to the games saw scant evidence of a repressive regime. Nazi Germany and its unchallenged leader, Adolf Hitler, were on their best behavior. Yet, away from the spectacle in Berlin, an ominous war machine was in the making." "As Ian Kershaw opens this monumental volume, large segments of the German population idolize Hitler for bringing the nation out of economic despair. Supported by four pillars of the Nazi regime -- the Party, the armed forces, the industrial cartels, and the civil service -- Hitler is poised to realize his Mephistophelian vision: the subjugation of Europe under the Thousand Year Reich and, in the process, the annihilation of the Jews. Meanwhile, a continent still carrying the scars of the First World War largely ignores his blueprints for conquest." "Soon Hitler embarks on expansion. With chilling efficiency, he annexes Austria with the support of rabid local Nazis, and then, after hoodwinking European leaders in Munich, undertakes a lightning conquest of Czechoslovakia. His invasion of Poland plunges Europe headlong into a cataclysmic war, a war that Hitler is convinced he alone has the genius to conduct. In unsparing prose, Kershaw describes the slaughter of conquered troops and civilians alike as German soldiers, accompanied by fanatical SS units, sweep into country after country." "For three years, Hitler's armies have the upper hand. But once the tides of battle turn in favor of the Allies, Hitler, no longer the invincible warlord, becomes an increasingly desperate gambler. Rarely leaving his "Wolf's Lair" he continues to mastermind the war, his public appearances and radio broadcasts limited to whipping up fervor among his countrymen against Jews, "Bolsheviks," and others deemed enemies of the Aryan race."
