Hell hath no fury : true profiles of women at war from antiquity to Iraq by Rosalind Miles( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When you think of war, you think of men, right? Not so fast. In Hell Hath No Fury, Rosalind Miles and Robin Cross prove that although many of their stories have been erased or forgotten, women have played an integral role in wars throughout history." "In biographical essays, Miles and Cross introduce us to war leaders (Cleopatra, Elizabeth I, Margaret Thatcher); combatants (Molly Pitcher, Lily Litvak, Tammy Duckworth); spies (Belle Boyd, Virginia Hall, Noor Inayat Khan); reporters and propaganidists (Martha Gellhorn, Tokyo Rose, Anna Politkovskaya); and more. These are women who have taken action and who challenge our perceived notions of womanhood. Some will be familiar to readers, but most will not, though their deeds during wartime were every bit as important as their male contemporaries' more heralded contributions."--BOOK JACKET
Fallen eagle : the last days of the Third Reich by Robin Cross( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the beginning of 1945, the armies of Europe were deeply weary. The Allies were determined to end the war in Europe quickly and with as little bloodshed as possible. But the Germans were by no means prepared to yield - though they could see the war was lost. Thus began one of the most crucial years in the history of the world, and its climax, the desperate battle for Berlin, brought to a close one of the darkest chapters mankind has ever witnessed. The Allied effort pushed on from all fronts. In the east, Stalin's mighty war machine began its great offensive. From out of the swirling fog and snow, the Soviet steamroller crashed through the German lines on the Vistula, 125 miles south of Warsaw. Driving across the Polish plain towards the Oder, Germany's historic frontier with the east, Russia's advancing armored columns created panic in East Prussia. In the west, Eisenhower and Montgomery joined the race to destroy the heart of Nazi Germany - and defend Europe against Stalin's vaulting ambition. Through vivid, firsthand accounts from soldiers and civilians, privates, generals, and refugees, Fallen Eagle chronicles the triumphs and tragedies of the war's closing months - from the devastating, triple air raids on Dresden to "Spring's Awakening," Hitler's last offensive, with which he planned to retake Budapest and retain its oil fields; from the legendary summit in Yalta between Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill to an extraordinary account of Hitler's last days

Citadel : the Battle of Kursk by Robin Cross( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No sooner had the German thrusts been contained, while within the tantalizing grasp of success, than the Red Army delivered a series of crushing counterblows which were to drive the Wehrmacht back beyond the Dnieper. Characteristically, Hitler had gambled all on a throw of a single dice and had lost the initiative in the East - never to regain it. Citadel provides a detailed picture of the Battle of Kursk, from the strategic tug-of-war waged within both high commands in the agonizing months which preceded the German offensive, to the firsthand experiences of the troops on the ground and the airmen flying over the blazing steppe as the battle reached furnace heat. Citadel is placed firmly within the wider strategic context of the spring and summer of 1943, months in which Hitler and Stalin steeled themselves to take decisions which would decide the course of the war and the shape of the peace which followed

"Women of all ages, abilities and social backgrounds played a vital role in the winning of the Second World War. In this book Dame Vera Lynn amasses the experiences and memories of WRENS, WRACS, ATS officers, ambulance drivers, nurses, land-girls, radio operators and code-breakers, spies and resistance workers, from the mundane to the dramatic and sometimes painful. She also recollects the courage and stoicism of those who just got on with family life.

World War II in photographs by Robin Cross( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Word War I wrought global devastation, destorying empires and the lives of tens of millions. The symbol of the madness which gripped the great powers between 1914 and 1918 was the trench system on the Western Front, where men died in tens of thousands over a few miles of butchered landscape, where the machine gun was king. The many sides of the conflict, both military and civilian, are captured in these pages: the crowded, shell-drenched beaches at Gallipoli in 1915; a British battleship blown apart at Jutland in 1916; the sea of mud that was Passchendaele in 1917; the lumbering tanks which helped break the spirit of the German Army in 1918. Images of war whose memorials stand in every town in Europe
