La guerre allemande : portrait d'un peuple en guerre, 1939-1945 by Nicholas Stargardt( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "En 1939, les Allemands, encore traumatisés par le souvenir de 1918, ne voulaient pas d'une nouvelle guerre. Pourtant, leur détermination aveugle fit durer les combats jusqu'en 1945. Comment ont-ils pu tenir si longtemps sous les bombardements, malgré les privations et l'accumulation des défaites ? Les Allemands avaient-ils conscience de mener une guerre génocidaire ? Dans quelle mesure crurent-ils aux mensonges d'un régime qui les menait à leur perte ? Dans "La Guerre allemande", Nicholas Stargardt raconte pour la première fois la Seconde Guerre mondiale telle que l'ont vécue les Allemands. Pour cela, il brosse une vaste fresque d'histoires personnelles nourrie des journaux intimes, des lettres échangées entre les soldats et leur famille ainsi que des rapports de surveillance de la population. Mêlant magistralement la grande et la petite histoire, "La Guerre allemande" nous fait pénétrer dans l'intimité d'un peuple en armes, un peuple déterminé à se battre, envers et contre tout, pour une cause perdue. Nicholas Stargardt est professeur d'histoire à l'université d'Oxford. La Guerre allemande est son premier ouvrage traduit en français."

The German War : a nation under arms, 1939-1945 : citizens and soldiers by Nicholas Stargardt( Recording )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major new history of the Third Reich that explores the German psyche.As early as 1941, Allied victory in World War II seemed all but assured. How and why, then, did the Germans prolong the barbaric conflict for three and a half more years?In The German War, acclaimed historian Nicholas Stargardt draws on an extraordinary range of primary source materials--personal diaries, court records, and military correspondence--to answer this question. He offers an unprecedented portrait of wartime Germany, bringing the hopes and expectations of the German people--from infantrymen and tank commanders on the Eastern Front to civilians on the home front--to vivid life. While most historians identify the German defeat at Stalingrad as the moment when the average German citizen turned against the war effort, Stargardt demonstrates that the Wehrmacht in fact retained the staunch support of the patriotic German populace until the bitter end.Astonishing in its breadth and humanity, The German War is a groundbreaking new interpretation of what drove the Germans to fight--and keep fighting--for a lost cause
