London at war, 1939-1945 by Philip Ziegler( Book )

31 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 1,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of London at war from 1939 to 1945, or perhaps of Londoners at war - for Philip Ziegler, best known as a biographer, is above all fascinated by the people who found their lives so suddenly and violently transformed: the querulous, tiresome, yet strangely gallant housewife from West Hampstead; the turbulent, left-wing, retired schoolmaster from Walthamstow, always standing up to the authorities; the odiously snobbish middle-class woman from Kensington, sneering at the 'scum' who took shelter in the Underground; the typist from Fulham; the plumber from Woolwich. It was their war every bit as much as it was Churchill's or the King's, and this is their story

Melbourne : a biography of William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne by Philip Ziegler( Book )

31 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, PC, FRS (15 March 1779 ? 24 November 1848) was a British Whig statesman who served as Home Secretary (1830?1834) and Prime Minister (1834 and 1835?1841). He is best known for his intense and successful mentoring of Queen Victoria, at ages 18?21, in the ways of politics. Historians conclude that Melbourne does not rank high as a prime minister, for there were no great foreign wars or domestic issues to handle, he lacked major achievements and enunciated no grand principles. "But he was kind, honest, and not self-seeking.""--Wikipedia

Biografie van de Engelse actrice en society-figuur Diana Cooper (1892-1979)
Olivier by Philip Ziegler( Book )

17 editions published between 1821 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A finalist for the Sheridan Morley Prize that has been called "probably the best Olivier book for general readers" (Kirkus Reviews), Philip Ziegler's Olivier provides an incredibly accessible and comprehensive portrait of this Hollywood superstar, Oscar-winning director, and one who is considered the greatest stage actor of the twentieth century. The era abounded in great actor -- Gielgud, Richardson, Guinness, Burton, O'Toole - but none could challenge Laurence Olivier's range and power. By the 1940s he had achieved international stardom. His affair with Vivien Leigh led to a marriage as glamorous and as tragic as any in Hollywood history. He was as accomplished a director as he was a leading man: his three Shakespearian adaptations are among the most memorable ever filmed

20 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Osbert Sitwell by Philip Ziegler( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the heart of every literary fracas from 1918 until well after 1945, Osbert was a close friend and sometime sparring partner of T.S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Evelyn Waugh and Cyril Connolly, and a ferocious enemy of Noel Coward, the Leavises and Winston Churchill. His love life was notoriously turbulent; he could be outrageous, perverse, arrogant, bullying; he could be generous, loyal, considerate, public-spirited - but he was never dull." "This biography provides social insights, a striking overview of literary Britain in this century and, a portrait of a remarkable human being."--Jacket
Omdurman by Philip Ziegler( Book )

17 editions published between 1973 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crucial and bizarre battle that was England's revenge for the murder of Gordon at Khartoum

The Duchess of Dino by Philip Ziegler( Book )

26 editions published between 1962 and 2003 in English and German and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first English-language biography of the Duchess paints a portrait of an intelligent, strikingly beautiful, proud, and ferociously loyal woman. She served as Talleyrand₂s constant companion, taking on some of his social and political burdens when he grew too old to bear them alone. Talleyrand was even assumed to have been the father of her last child. This is a gripping character study of one of the most influential women of the 19th century"--Publisher's description
