Stalingrad by Antony Beevor( Book )

131 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 3,102 WorldCat member 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

Ardennes 1944 : Hitler's last gamble by Antony Beevor( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On December, 16, 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes. He believed he could split the Allies by driving all the way to Antwerp, then force the Canadians and the British out of the war. Although his generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. Many were exultant at the prospect of striking back. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in western Europe."--Book jacket

Paris after the liberation, 1944-1949 by Antony Beevor( Book )

71 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Allied troops fought their way into Paris on August 25, 1944, they were greeted by the wildest scenes of joy Europe had ever witnessed. The following day, over a million people thronged the streets in a delirious atmosphere of freedom to watch General de Gaulle's triumphant march from the Arc de Triomphe to Notre Dame. There was a black edge to the exuberance, though. Hatreds from the Vichy era led to the settling of scores in a chaos of often wild justice. The period that followed was full of contrast and contradiction: Picasso, a multimillionaire, became the Communist Party's star recruit; an infatuation with American popular culture thrived amid virulent anti-Americanism; black marketeers grew rich on the misery of the population; literary and social life revived miraculously amid the poverty and dilapidation; Christian Dior revolutionized fashion with the extravagant use of material, and working-class women tore the clothes in outrage from one of his models. Arthur Miller observed of Paris, emotionally scarred by the Occupation, that "the moral, the literary, and the political were the same." Paris was the focal point in the opening stages of the Cold War, and in the new era of the atom bomb. Existentialists and Communists arguing in cafes sensed that history had entered a decisive phase. At a time when rumor was as powerful as fact, word of plots and counterplots proliferated, and France came to the brink of civil war. Paris After the Liberation is the first work to do justice to this extraordinary period. It is a landmark achievement, a brilliant fusion of politics, literary life, society, theater, fashion, and art woven into a rich and intimate account brimming with revelation. Acclaimed historians Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper (the granddaughter of England's first postwar ambassador to France) have drawn on an astonishing array of sources: unpublished diaries, letters, and photographs; interviews with many of the period's leading figures; and important material from archives in Paris, the United States, London, and Moscow, whose newly opened state papers have provided a wealth of completely fresh information, much of it startling. Paris After the Liberation brings to life a pivotal moment of world history, suffusing it with wit, anecdote, and brio. It is a brilliant and thoroughly enjoyable work of synthesis, a fitting celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the liberation of Paris

A writer at war : Vasily Grossman with the Red Army, 1941-1945 by Vasiliĭ Grossman( Book )

34 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the notebooks in which Vasily Grossman gathered the raw materials for his newspaper articles, this book depicts as never before the crushing condition on the Eastern Front during World War II and the lives and deaths of infantrymen, tank drivers, pilots, snipers, and civilians. Deemed unfit for service when the Germans invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, Grossman became a special correspondent for 'The Red Star, ' the Red Army newspaper. A portly novelist in his mid-thirties with no military experience, he was given a uniform and hastily taught how to use a pistol. Remarkably, he spent three of the next four years at the front, observing with a writer's eye the most pitiless fighting ever recorded. Grossman witnessed almost all the major events of the Eastern Front: the appalling defeats and desperate retreats of 1941, the defense of Moscow, and the fighting in the Ukraine. In August 1942 he was posted to Stalingrad, where he remained during four brutal months of street fighting. Grossman was present at the battle of Kursk (the largest tank engagement in history), and, as the Red Army advanced, he reached Berdichev, where his worst fears for his mother and other relatives were confirmed. A Jew himself, he undertook the faithful recording of Holocaust atrocities as their extent dawned. His supremely powerful report 'The hell of Treblinka' was used in evidence at the Nuremberg tribunal. Anthony Beever, a historian, along with Luba Vinogradova, have woven Grossman's notebooks into a fluid, compelling narrative that gives us one of the best descriptions- at once unflinching and sensitive- of what Grossman called 'the ruthless truth of war.' -- from Publisher

Ardennes 1944 : the Battle of the Bulge by Antony Beevor( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 16, 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes in Belgium, believing he could split the Allies by driving all the way to Antwerp and forcing the Canadians and the British out of the war. Although his generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. Many were exultant at the prospect of striking back. The allies, taken by surprise, found themselves fighting two panzer armies. Belgian civilians abandoned their homes, justifiably afraid of German revenge. Panic spread even to Paris. While some American soldiers, overwhelmed by the German onslaught, fled or surrendered, others held on heroically, creating breakwaters which slowed the German advance. The harsh winter conditions and the savagery of the battle became comparable to the Eastern Front. In fact the Ardennes became the Western Front's counterpart to Stalingrad. There was terrible ferocity on both sides, driven by desperation and revenge, in which the normal rules of combat were breached. The Ardennes, involving more than a million men, would prove to be the battle which finally broke the back of the Wehrmacht

Defending the Motherland : The Soviet Women who Fought Hitler's Aces by Luba Vinogradova( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plucked from every background, and led by an N.K.V.D. Major, the new recruits who boarded a train in Moscow on 16th October 1941 to go to war had much in common with millions of others across the world. What made the 586th Fighter Regiment, the 587th Heavy-bomber Regiment and the 588th Regiment of light night-bombers unique was their gender: the Soviet Union was creating the first all-female active combat units in modern history. Drawing on original interviews with surviving airwomen, Lyuba Vinogradova weaves together the untold stories of the female Soviet fighter pilots of the Second World War"--Page 4 of cover
The battle of Arnhem : the deadliest airborne operation of World War II by Antony Beevor( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On September 17, 1944, General Kurt Student, the founder of Nazi Germany's parachute forces, heard the groaning roar of airplane engines. He went out onto his balcony above the flat landscape of southern Holland to watch the air armada of Dakotas and gliders, carrying the legendary American 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions and the British 1st Airborne Division. Operation Market Garden, the plan to end the war by capturing the bridges leading to the Lower Rhine and beyond, was a bold concept, but could it have ever worked? The cost of failure was horrendous, above all for the Dutch who risked everything to help. German reprisals were pitiless and cruel, and lasted until the end of the war. Antony Beevor, using often overlooked sources from Dutch, American, British, Polish, and German archives, has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting, which General Student called "The Last German Victory." Yet The Battle of Arnhem, written with Beevor's inimitable style and gripping narrative, is about much more than a single dramatic battle--it looks into the very heart of war."--Provided by publisher

D-Day : van de landing in Normandië tot de bevrijding van Parijs by Antony Beevor( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in Dutch and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Na het wereldwijde succes van de bestsellers Stalingrad en Berlijn schrijft historicus en meesterverteller Antony Beevor opnieuw een standaardwerk over een van de grote keerpunten uit de Tweede Wereldoorlog: D-day en de landing in Normandië. 'Nooit eerder in de oorlogsgeschiedenis,' schreef Stalin aan Churchill, 'heeft zo'n onderneming plaatsgevonden.' Het was inderdaad verreweg de grootste vlootinvasie ooit vertoond. De deelnemers aan de invasie over Het Kanaal soldaten, zeelieden, piloten zullen het beeld nooit vergeten, net zomin als de verraste Duitse verdedigers aan de Normandische kust. De schaal van de onderneming en de nauwgezette planning waren zonder precedent, maar hoewel de bruggenhoofden relatief snel waren aangelegd, was de volgende fase van de strijd veel moeilijker dan verwacht. Het Normandische heggenlandschap was ideaal voor de verdediging, en de Duitsers, in het bijzonder de divisies van de Waffen-SS, vochten meedogenloos voor hun laatste kans. Aan de hand van nooit eerder gebruikt materiaal uit meer dan dertig archieven in zes landen, laat Antony Beevor zien hoe de Britse, Canadese en Amerikaanse troepen verzeild raakten in gevechten waarvan de heftigheid die van het Oostfront evenaarde.'
