Knight's cross : a life of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel by David Fraser( Book )

65 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In any numbering of the great captains of history, the name of Erwin Rommel must stand in the first rank. He was the outstanding Axis field commander of the Second World War, and was respected, even admired, as well as feared by his opponents. Here, it seemed to the Allies, was a supremely professional soldier: chivalrous, decent, untainted by the crimes of the Nazi regime, carrying out his duty with often dazzling success

Forfatteren beskriver i bogen Alanbrookes liv og militære karriere med hovedvægten lagt på hans strategiske ledelse af de allieredes krigsindsats i tæt samarbejde med Churchill
Frederick the Great : King of Prussia by David Fraser( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick II, King of Prussia, was a legendary ruler, artistic patron, man of letters, lawgiver and commander. He personally led his army in war after war with such supreme skill that he became acclaimed as the greatest soldier of his time. He was an avid collector of paintings and was a distinguished musician himself. He corresponded with the leading intellectuals of the Age of Enlightenment, most notably Voltaire, and wrote poetry as well as books on politics and warfare." "David Fraser places Frederick's life as a solider at the center of this researched book, allowing us to understand Frederick's strengths and weaknesses in the field. Fraser not only brings to these pages the authentic smell of battle, but also offers a sweeping account of strategy and maneuver, of psychology, morale and the impact of victory and defeat on the victors and vanquished. He also knows how to view military action in the context of eighteenth-century European diplomacy and the ever-shifting political forces that would re-shape the map of Europe and touch off the American Revolution."--Jacket

The Jews of the Channel Islands and the rule of law, 1940-1945 : quite contrary to the principles of British justice by David Fraser( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A study is also made of the ways in which the collective memory in the Islands has been constructed so as to ignore and obfuscate the fate of Jews in order to combat more general assertions of 'collaboration'. This conflation of 'collaboration' and the issue of fate of the Jews has not just distorted the historical record, but also echoes many of the elements which may have led to the ease with which Island officials implemented legalized anti-Semitism."--Jacket
The Christian Watt papers by Christian Watt( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Her writings offer a vivid insight not only into the life of the North-east of Scotland during the middle and later part of the nineteenth century, and into the twentieth, but also on events of national and international interest. Christian was a woman of beauty, character and intelligence, and her writing is fuelled by her sense of family pride, her anger at social injustice, her hatred of war and her profound religious faith. Her courage and compassion are everywhere evident, as is her frankness, spontaneity and insight. Her papers have remained in her family, but thanks to David Fraser's careful and sensitive editing are now available to a wider public. He has arranged the papers in a coherent chronology and provided narrative and explanatory links, but for the most part leaves Christian to tell her story in her own words. Previously privately published, this book has not been widely available for many years
