Verdenshistorie. Om optakten til 2. Verdenskrig, beskrivelse af den intense "dark" sommer i 1939, lige inden tyskernes invasion i Polen. Bl.a. også beskrivelse af de diplomatiske og politiske forsøg på at undgå katastrofen, og også de mere almene reaktioner, forventninger - og naivitet - hos befolkningerne i de europæiske lande rundt om Tyskland. Forfatteren ser mellemkrigsårene og optakten til krigen som "historiens march"--"it was no single event, no individuel personality, no dominant portentous trend that would lead to the conflagration, rather, it was the march of history - that unmistakable force that breeds war and revolution, national ascendance and decline, political triumph and tragedy, and ultimately life and death on the greatest scale."

Maximilian and Carlota : a tale of romance and tragedy by Gene Smith( Book )

17 editions published between 1973 and 2003 in Spanish and English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new telling of Mexico's Second Empire and Louis Napoléon's installation of Maximilian von Habsburg and his wife, Carlota of Belgium, as the emperor and empress of Mexico, Maximilian and Carlota brings the dramatic, interesting, and tragic time of this six-year-siege to life. From 1861 to 1866, the French incorporated the armies of Austria, Belgium--including forces from Crimea to Egypt--to fight and subdue the regime of Mexico's Benito Juárez during the time of the U.S. Civil War. France viewed this as a chance to seize Mexican territory in a moment they were convinced the Confederacy would prevail and take over Mexico. With both sides distracted in the U.S., this was their opportunity to seize territory in North America. In 1867, with aid from the United States, this movement came to a disastrous end both for the royals and for France while ushering in a new era for Mexico. In a bid to oust Juárez, Mexican conservatives appealed to European leaders to select a monarch to run their country. Maximilian and Carlota's reign, from 1864 to 1867, was marked from the start by extravagance and ambition and ended with the execution of Maximilian by firing squad, with Carlota on the brink of madness
