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

18 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 4,043 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."--
Charlemagne by Richard Winston( Book )

72 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Charlemagne is designed to make the man and his policies real to the modern reader. It presents not the remote bearded patriarch of legend but, in the words of the author, 'a restlessly energetic and essentially "popular" king.'
The deputy by Rolf Hochhuth( Book )

8 editions published between 1964 and 1997 in English and German and held by 2,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First staged in 1963, The Deputy stirred up more controversy and caused greater repercussions than any other postwar work. Based on Rolf Hochhuth's research into Vatican activities during World War II, the play's treatment of Pope Pius XII - the "deputy" of Christ on earth - and the Church during the Nazi persecution of the Jews made it the object of impassioned praise and violent denunciation. It is a powerful, shocking work. This new paperback edition includes an appendix about Hochhuth's research

Memories, dreams, reflections by C. G Jung( Book )

37 editions published between 1953 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Swiss psychologist shares the visions, inner experiences, and dreams that have shaped his work and thought. In the spring of 1957 when he was 81 years old, Jung undertook the telling of his life story. At regular intervals he had conversations with his colleague and friend Aniela Jaffé, and collaborated with her in the preparation of the text based on these talks. On occasion he was moved to write entire chapters of the book in his own handwriting, and he continued to work on the final stages of the manuscript until shortly before his death on June 6, 1961
Thomas Becket by Richard Winston( Book )

27 editions published between 1966 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."
To the bitter end by Hans Bernd Gisevius( Book )

16 editions published between 1942 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,352 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
