The Man Who Invented the Third Reich

Auteur: Stan Laurssyn

A prolific writer, historian, critic, translator and publisher, Arthur Moeller van den Bruck was the quintessential Bohemian fin-de-siecle artist. In the turbulent years which followed the end of World War I, he became politically active and was soon considered to be the leader of the young conservative revolutionaries in Weimar Germany.;Van den Bruck expressed his ideas for a German authoritarian state in his major work "Das Dritte Reich" (The Third Reich), first published in 1923. Adolf Hitler, the charismatic leader of the then litle-known National Socialist German Workers' Party, whom van den Bruck had met the same year, was profoundly influenced by these ideas and regarded himself as the activist who could implement them. When Hitler and the Nazis swept to power in 1933, van den Bruck realized Hitler had become the personification of the violent dynamism recommended in "Das Dritte Reich" and he foresaw the horrors to come. Van den Bruck saw no way out other than suicide.;In this biography, the author offers an insight into the life of van den Bruck and of the political and artistic whirlpools of Weimar Germany in which he lived.

To the Bitter End, 1942-45 v. 2: The Diaries of Victor Klemperer, 1942-45

Auteur: Victor Klemperer

The second volume of the diaries of Victor Klemperer, a Jew in Dresden who survived the war and whose diaries between 1933 and 1945 have been hailed as one of the most important chronicles of Nazi Germany ever published. A publishing sensation in Germany (where they have sold over 100,000 copies at GBP45), the publication of Victor Klemperer's diaries brings to light one of the most extraordinary documents of the Nazi period. The son of a rabbi, Klemperer was by 1933 a professor of languages in Dresden. Over the next decade he, like other German Jews, lost his job, his house and many of his friends, even his cat, as Jews were not allowed to own pets. He remained loyal to his country, determined not to emigrate, and convinced that each successive Nazi act against the Jews must be the last. Saved for much of the war from the Holocaust by his marriage to a gentile, he was able to escape in the aftermath of the Allied bombing of Dresden and survived the remaining months of the war in hiding. Throughout, Klemperer kept a diary, for a Jew in Nazi Germany a daring act in itself. Shocking and moving by turns, it is a remarkable and important document, as powerful and astonishing in its way as Anne Frank's classic. The second volume of two, this covers the period from the beginnings of the Holocaust to the end of the war, telling the story of Klemperer's increasing isolation, his near miraculous survival, his awareness of the development of the growing Holocaust as friends and associates disappeared, and his narrow escapes from deportation and the Dresden firebombing in 1945.

Verdun en de Somme

Auteur: J. Thompson
de grootste veldslagen ooit. Met unieke uitneembare documenten, memorabilia en een audio- cd (Engelstalig) met getuigenissen van veteranen

Bij Verdun en aan de Somme werden de grootste veldslagen van de hele Eerste Wereldoorlog uitgevochten. De moed en standvastigheid van de Franse soldaten tijdens de tien maanden durende martelgang bij Verdun zijn legendarisch geworden. Op de eerste dag van de Slag aan de Somme sneuvelden bijna 20. 000 manschappen van het Britse leger en raakten er nog eens 40. 000 gewond -het grootste aantal slachtoffers op één dag in de geschiedenis van het Britse leger. De uitputtings-oorlog aan de Somme zou vierenhalve maand duren. De slachting aan het westelijk front in 1916 was voor alle partijen ongekend en zou beslissend blijken voor de afloop van de Eerste Wereldoorlog.

Verdun en de Somme bevat meer dan 30 facsimile's van zeldzame en van nog niet eerder gepubliceerde documenten uit de Eerste Wereldoorlog,
die de tekst van het boek tot leven brengen. De lezer kan deze verschrikkelijke periode uit de geschiedenis nu zelf beleven aan de hand van kaarten, dagboeken, brieven, schetsen, geheime memo's en rapporten, affiches en propagandamateriaal, die bewaard worden in het Imperial War Museum in Londen en andere
verzamelingen in Frankrijk en Engeland.
Met meer dan 200 foto's en 17 kaarten in kleur van de loopgravenoorlog.
