Inside the Third Reich : memoirs by Albert Speer( Book )

29 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 3,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inside the Third Reich is a memoir written by Albert Speer, the Nazi Minister of Armaments from 1942 to 1945, serving as Adolf Hitler's main architect before this period. It is considered to be one of the most detailed descriptions of the inner workings and leadership of Nazi Germany but is controversial because of Speer's lack of discussion of Nazi atrocities and questions regarding his degree of awareness or involvement with them."--

The book is an intricate bildungsroman about humanity's eternal quest for enlightenment and for synthesis of the intellectual and the participatory life. Set in the 23rd century, the novel purports to be a biography of Josef Knecht ("servant" in German), who has been reared in Castalia, the remote place his society has provided for the intellectual elite to grow and flourish. Since childhood, Knecht has been consumed with mastering the Glass Bead Game, which requires a synthesis of aesthetics and scientific arts, such as mathematics, music, logic, and philosophy
Thomas Becket by Richard Winston( Book )

The conflict between Henry II and Becket derived from "the strong character of both the King and the Archbishop, the points of principle which divided them and led to Becket's murder in Canterbury Cathedral. Richard Winston covers both aspects in his search for the character of Becket, taking his readers throgh the maze of medieval history."

Klingsor's last summer by Hermann Hesse( Book )

18 editions published between 1970 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first English-language edition of Klingsor's Last Summer, which was originally published in 1920, a year after Demian and two years before Siddhartha. The book has three parts: a story called A Child's Heart, followed by Klein and Wagner and Klingsor's Last Summer, Hesse's two longest and finest novellas. These novellas, along with Siddhartha (the three works were republished in 1931 under the title The Inward Way), are the first fruits of the period that began in the spring of 1919, when Hesse settled in the Ticino mountain village of Montagnola to start a new life without his wife and children. A Child's Heart, written in January 1919, in Basel, concerns the transmutation of a boy's innocence into knowledge of good and evil, and the painful guilt that accompanies this process. Both Klein and Wagner (written in May-June 1919, immediately after the arrival in Montagnola) and Klingsor's Last Summer (written shortly after) are set in a southern landscape that reflects Hesse's life that summer; both novellas have heroes who are more or less Hesse's age at the time; and in both the hero's death is preceded by a grand vision of unity in which the polarities of life are resoluved. Hesse exposes himself mercilessly in Klein and Wagner, a story of escape, wrenching loose, letting go. But the expressionist painter Klingsor is a more direct self-portrait of the Hesse of 1919

To the bitter end by Hans Bernd Gisevius( Book )

18 editions published between 1942 and 2009 in English and German and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When on July 20, 1944, a bomb - boldly placed inside Hitler's headquarters by Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg - exploded without killing the Fuhrer, the subsequent coup d'etat against the Third Reich, codenamed Valkyrie, collapsed. The conspirators were summarily shot or condemned in show trials and sadistically hanged. One of the few survivors of the conspiracy was Hans Bernd Gisevius, who had used his positions in the Gestapo and the Abwehr (military intelligence) to further the anti-Nazi plot. He knew well or had met the major figures involved in planning Valkyrie, including General August Beck, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, Colonel Hans Oster, and von Stauffenberg. "The conspiracy was widespread, involving a wide circle of former politicians, diplomats, and government officials as well as senior military men. The anti-Hitler movement, largely motivated by moral outrage rather than by political expediency, had started as early as 1933 and involved several putsches and assassination attempts. This is an abridged edition of To the Bitter End by Hans Bernd Gisevius."--Jacket

Stalingrad by Theodor Plivier( Book )

8 editions published between 1942 and 1984 in English and German and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A la fin du mois de novembre 1942, l'armée russe contre-attaquait au nord et au sud de Stalingrad, enfermant dans un étau la Vle armée allemande, forte alors de 320 000 hommes. Le 2 février 1943, le maréchal von Paulus capitulait avec 90 000 rescapés réduits à l'état de cadavres vivants par le froid, la faim, les blessures et le typhus. Theodor Plievier a vécu l'épopée de Stalingrad. C'est en témoin qu'il décrit la bataille-charnière de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale où fut atteint le sommet de la souffrance et de l'horreur, il découvre de surcroît le drame du simple soldat, les tourments de l'officier, les hésitations déchirantes qui mèneront les généraux de Hitler à la reddition, au suicide ou à la révolte
