Napoléon by Emil Ludwig( Book )
47 editions published between 1915 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using his unique ability to analyze character so admirably, Ludwig has presented a biography of Napoleon I, that concentrates less on the battles and more on the man: his inner history, intellect, self confidence, energy, imaginative power, clarity of thought, and natural dignity. The time line of this book is from Napoleon's birth in 1769 and to his death in 1821. Along his life's journey he became a uniquely talented man, a great soldier, and a great leader. It covers his heights of power and success: men and country followed him unconditionally, great kingdoms fell before him, and he became emperor. It also includes his extraordinary failings: the damaging French invasion of Russia, abdication, exile, defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, island confinement and his ultimate death

Dvě historické biografie vzniklé v třicátých letech, ve kterých rakouský prozaik, humanistický pacifista (1881-1942), vyzývá za nezávislost smýšlení proti násilnostem fanatismu a ve kterých autor doslovu, historik J.

The royal game & other stories by Stefan Zweig( Book )
11 editions published between 1944 and 1961 in English and German and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1938, Nazism forced Zweig into exile. Chess Story, sometimes known as The Royal Game, was the last thing he wrote before he and his wife committed suicide.

On a great ocean liner, the world champion of chess confronts a lawyer with a surprising talent for the game in a tense contest of wit and will. How the lawyer acquired his skill and at what terrible cost are the substance of a story, in which, at the same time, quietly but unmistakably, the death knell of the Enlightenment is sounded."--BOOK JACKET
