1812 : Napoleon in Moscow by Paul Britten Austin( )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Napoleon's Grande Armee waits at the gates of Moscow, preparing to enter in triumphal procession. But it finds a city abandoned by its inhabitants - save only the men who emerge to fan the flames as incendiary fuzes hidden throughout the empty buildings of Moscow set the city alight. For three days Moscow burns, while looters dodge the fires to plunder and pillage. And so begins 1812: Napoleon in Moscow, Paul Britten Austin's atmospheric 'word-film' presented through the testimony of more than 100 of the people who witnessed and took part in the campaign. A large proportion of these close-up accounts have never been seen in English before."--Jacket

1812 : the Great Retreat by Paul Britten Austen( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1812: The Great Retreat tells the story of the end of the most famously disastrous campaign in history, using the words of the survivors to describe their desperate withdrawal from Russia. Napoleon's campaign had begun with more than a third of a million men setting out on what was to be a long and terrible march to the glittering city of Moscow. Only 100,000 were to reach it. Forced to turn back in the face of winter's onset, almost nothing of the drastically reduced army lived to recross the Niemen River. Using the words of 160 of the participants, Paul Britten Austin brings unparalleled authenticity and immediacy to his unique account of the end of Napoleon's dramatic and tragic 1812 campaign."--BOOK JACKET
1812 : the march on Moscow by Paul Britten Austin( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Napoleon's felttog i Rusland i 1812, det så tragisk mislykkede russiske felttog, Napoleon's store militære og politiske fejltagelse. Bogen bygger på udpluk fra krigsbeskrivelser af de overlevede, hvordan det blev opfattet og oplevet af de deltagende selv. Det russiske felttog er "one of the great disasters of military history. The story is as dramatic as it is massive in scale: vast, but steadily dwindling, army corps marching ever eastwards in repeated attemps to come to grips with an elusive foe; huge disasters covered, as the weary columns trudge along seemingly endless roads. An the final destination? the most exotic and least known of Europe's capitals. In this enthralling day-by-day, sometimes hour-by-hour, narrative the author skilfully blends the memoirs and diaries of more than a hundred eyewitnesses"

China: the revolution continued by Jan Myrdal( Book )

11 editions published between 1970 and 1973 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is the long-awaited sequel to Report from a Chinese Village, based on research done early in 1970 when Jan Myrdal and Gun Kessle were allowed to return to Liu Ling, the village they had described eight years before. Now viewed as a basic book on China, Report from a Chinese village was hailed as a classic for our time when it was published. [...] This new book is in many ways a continuation of the earlier Report, but it can also be read as a fascinating introduction to the nature of China's cultural revolution at the village level. ..."

The horrific sufferings of the mind-reading monster Hercules Barefoot : his wonderful love and his terrible hatred by Carl-Johan Vallgren( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a stormy night in 1813, a doctor is called to the aid of two prostitutes in childbirth. To one is born a healthy girl, Henriette, to the other, what can only be described as a monster: a boy, Hercules, deaf-mute and hideously deformed, and with the power to read minds. This is a picaresque fable of the love that grows between Hercules and Henriette during their childhood, and which will entwine their fates for ever. Vallgren paints a cast of grotesques in a magical and atmospheric tour of nineteenth-century Europe: the swags and tails of the bordello, where Hercules is born; the phantasmagoria of the freak show, with which he travels; the sinister grandeur of the Jesuit monasteries, in which he finds both shelter and peril; the squalor of the asylum, where he finds only pain. The Horrific Sufferings of the Mind-reading Monster Hercules Barefoot tells of social oppression, official corruption and religious persecution, but is, at its heart, a love story
