Hitler's women by Guido Knopp( Book )

36 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guido Knopp turns the spotlight on the principal women in Hitler's life. Here are six vivid pen-portraits of women whose lives, different as they were, were all fatally bound up with that of Hitler himself. Eva Braun, Hitler's mistress, whom he always kept in the background until the final bizarre marriage ceremony in the bunker before they died together; Magda Goebbels, a devotee of Hitler, wife of the Reich Propaganda Minister, and Nazi s̀uper-mum', who ended by killing herself and her six young children; Winifred Wagner, the English-born daughter-in-law of composer Richard Wagner, who introduced Hitler into influential circles and later put Wagner's music to the service of the Reich; Leni Riefenstahl, the brilliant film-maker who flirted with Hitler and lent her talent to the Nazis, but claimed to be a non-political artist; Zarah Leander, the hugely popular Swedish singer and film star, who gave Hitler advice on his hair-style and boosted the morale of the Wehrmacht; and finally the legendary screen goddess Marlene Dietrich, who, unlike the other five, resisted all the temptations of power and wealth in Hitler's Germany. She emigrated to the USA and became a committed and high-profile opponent of the Nazi regime. Supported by photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, and the words of close friends and colleagues of those portrayed, Guido Knopp's account brings back to life a generation who, with a few courageous exceptions, succumbed to enticement and connived in atrocity
The SS : a warning from history by Guido Knopp( Book )

50 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best known but least understood organ of the Nazi state, the SS grew from a minor politician's small, unpaid bodyguard into a force which dominated the racial, cultural and professional spheres of the most powerful empire Europe has ever seen. Often referred to as 'the state within a state', the SS was Heinrich Himmler's personal fiefdom and its influence pervaded all walks of German life, both private and public. Its tentacles extended into the army and police, the business world and of course the death camps." "The author reveals Himmler to be a man despised but indulged by Hitler who was obsessed with crackpot theories of Germanic mythology and deeply involved in the Final Solution. He assesses the career of Reinhard Heydrich, who put the organisational muscle and ruthlessness into the SS. The Totenkopf Brigade, set up specifically to run the concentration camps and death camps, is examined, as is the Waffen-SS, the military formation which killed thousands of Jews and partisans across Eastern Europe and fought bitterly against the Allies in Normandy. The postwar story of the SS is also outlined, from clandestine organisations of former SS men to the activities of ex-Nazis and neo-Nazis today." "Supported by photographs and the words of former SS men, their close friends and colleagues, Guido Knopp brings back to life a generation whose fanaticism and violence shaped the identity of the Third Reich.

Holokaust by Guido Knopp( Book )

33 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No crime in the twentieth century has so deeply shocked mankind as the Holocaust. And none has so stubbornly resisted every attempt to explain it. More than six million people were murdered, and countless more endured horrific suffering. Accompanying the Channel Four television series, Guido Knopp's disturbing account is the most complete history of the Holocaust to date. It reveals the appalling truth using the most recent historical research, including minutes of daily briefings by Joseph Goebbels, private papers of the SS Einsatzgruppen in charge of mass murder, and East German State Security documents detailing the deportation of Jews. - Jacket flap
Hitler's warriors by Guido Knopp( Book )

41 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early 1980s popular German TV journalist and presenter Guido Knopp has unearthed a wealth of new material about the leading figures of the Third Reich. He has spoken to countless contemporaries and eyewitnesses, relatives and friends of these men, and has been given access to documents that until now have been kept under lock and key. In this, the latest book in Knopp's groundbreaking reassessment of Germany's guilty past, he turns to the careers and the relationship with Hitler of six key military leaders of the Third Reich. Two of Nazi Germany's most brilliant field commanders, Erich von Manstein and Erwin Rommel, are examined alongside Friedrich Paulus, the doomed field marshal encircled at Stalingrad; Wilhelm Keitel, Hitler's intermediary and confidant in the Fuhrerbunker; Ernst Udet, idol of the Luftwaffe; and Wilhelm Canaris, arch-conspirator and head of the Abwehr, Germany's secret service

9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das 20. Jahrhundert war ebenso faszinierend wie furchtbar und hat den Deutschen mehr Gutes wie auch Böses auferlegt als jedes Jahrhundert zuvor: mehr Leid und Tod, mehr Wohlstand und mehr Fortschritt. Es war das Jahrhundert von Einstein und Hitler, von Kriegen und Verbrechen, geprägt von Augenblicken großen Glücks und Tagen der Verzweiflung. Es war das Jahrhundert von Ideologien, die die Welt verändern wollten und sie nur ins Unglück stürzten: unmenschliche Utopien, vom Faschismus bis zum Kommunismus, die in Deutschland am Ende beide jämmerlich gescheitert sind. Guido Knopp beschreibt anhand zahlreicher historischer Wendepunkte dieses Jahrhundert deutscher Geschichte

Der Erste Weltkrieg die Bilanz in Bildern by Guido Knopp( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Foto sagt oft mehr aus über einen historischen Moment als eine ganze Bibliothek. Es sind oft Bilder, die uns heute noch bewegen, ja erschüttern. Bilder, von Menschen, die für einen Moment aus der anonymen Masse herausgerissen wurden, deren Abbild aus ferner, lebloser Historie symbolische "Augenblicke" macht, die uns noch heute nahegehen. Bilder, die Geschichte machen. In 74 Kapiteln, anhand von 74 Fotografien erzählt dieses Buch die Geschichte hinter der Geschichte. Dabei gibt es immer wieder auch überraschende Erkenntnisse, können in einigen Fällen bewusste Fälschungen aufgedeckt und mitunter fast 100 Jahre lang fortgeschriebene Fehler korrigiert werden. Eine neue Sicht auf den Ersten Weltkrieg - eine Bilanz in Bildern
