Stalingrad by Antony Beevor( Book )

152 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 19 languages and held by 3,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On August 23, 1942, Hitler's 16th Panzer Division halted on the banks of the Volga. To their right, the city of Stalingrad blazed from the first of General von Richthofen's air raids, which ultimately killed 40,000 civilians. Many German soldiers thought the war against Russia was won. But in Stalin's namesake city on the Volga, Hitler had chosen the wrong target. The battle of Stalingrad would be the most pitiless, and perhaps the most important, battle in history. When the fighting was over, the world would begin to believe for the first time that Hitler could be defeated

Ardennes 1944 : Hitler's last gamble by Antony Beevor( Book )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On December, 16, 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes. He believed he could split the Allies by driving all the way to Antwerp, then force the Canadians and the British out of the war. Although his generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. Many were exultant at the prospect of striking back. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in western Europe."--Book jacket
Paris after the liberation, 1944-1949 by Antony Beevor( Book )

68 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Allied troops fought their way into Paris on August 25, 1944, they were greeted by the wildest scenes of joy Europe had ever witnessed. The following day, over a million people thronged the streets in a delirious atmosphere of freedom to watch General de Gaulle's triumphant march from the Arc de Triomphe to Notre Dame. There was a black edge to the exuberance, though. Hatreds from the Vichy era led to the settling of scores in a chaos of often wild justice. The period that followed was full of contrast and contradiction: Picasso, a multimillionaire, became the Communist Party's star recruit; an infatuation with American popular culture thrived amid virulent anti-Americanism; black marketeers grew rich on the misery of the population; literary and social life revived miraculously amid the poverty and dilapidation; Christian Dior revolutionized fashion with the extravagant use of material, and working-class women tore the clothes in outrage from one of his models. Arthur Miller observed of Paris, emotionally scarred by the Occupation, that "the moral, the literary, and the political were the same." Paris was the focal point in the opening stages of the Cold War, and in the new era of the atom bomb. Existentialists and Communists arguing in cafes sensed that history had entered a decisive phase. At a time when rumor was as powerful as fact, word of plots and counterplots proliferated, and France came to the brink of civil war. Paris After the Liberation is the first work to do justice to this extraordinary period. It is a landmark achievement, a brilliant fusion of politics, literary life, society, theater, fashion, and art woven into a rich and intimate account brimming with revelation. Acclaimed historians Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper (the granddaughter of England's first postwar ambassador to France) have drawn on an astonishing array of sources: unpublished diaries, letters, and photographs; interviews with many of the period's leading figures; and important material from archives in Paris, the United States, London, and Moscow, whose newly opened state papers have provided a wealth of completely fresh information, much of it startling. Paris After the Liberation brings to life a pivotal moment of world history, suffusing it with wit, anecdote, and brio. It is a brilliant and thoroughly enjoyable work of synthesis, a fitting celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the liberation of Paris

A writer at war : Vasily Grossman with the Red Army, 1941-1945 by Vasiliĭ Grossman( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the notebooks in which Vasily Grossman gathered the raw materials for his newspaper articles, this book depicts as never before the crushing condition on the Eastern Front during World War II and the lives and deaths of infantrymen, tank drivers, pilots, snipers, and civilians. Deemed unfit for service when the Germans invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, Grossman became a special correspondent for 'The Red Star, ' the Red Army newspaper. A portly novelist in his mid-thirties with no military experience, he was given a uniform and hastily taught how to use a pistol. Remarkably, he spent three of the next four years at the front, observing with a writer's eye the most pitiless fighting ever recorded. Grossman witnessed almost all the major events of the Eastern Front: the appalling defeats and desperate retreats of 1941, the defense of Moscow, and the fighting in the Ukraine. In August 1942 he was posted to Stalingrad, where he remained during four brutal months of street fighting. Grossman was present at the battle of Kursk (the largest tank engagement in history), and, as the Red Army advanced, he reached Berdichev, where his worst fears for his mother and other relatives were confirmed. A Jew himself, he undertook the faithful recording of Holocaust atrocities as their extent dawned. His supremely powerful report 'The hell of Treblinka' was used in evidence at the Nuremberg tribunal. Anthony Beever, a historian, along with Luba Vinogradova, have woven Grossman's notebooks into a fluid, compelling narrative that gives us one of the best descriptions- at once unflinching and sensitive- of what Grossman called 'the ruthless truth of war.' -- from Book Jacket

Ardennes 1944 : the Battle of the Bulge by Antony Beevor( Book )

20 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 16, 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes in Belgium, believing he could split the Allies by driving all the way to Antwerp and forcing the Canadians and the British out of the war. Although his generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. Many were exultant at the prospect of striking back. The allies, taken by surprise, found themselves fighting two panzer armies. Belgian civilians abandoned their homes, justifiably afraid of German revenge. Panic spread even to Paris. While some American soldiers, overwhelmed by the German onslaught, fled or surrendered, others held on heroically, creating breakwaters which slowed the German advance. The harsh winter conditions and the savagery of the battle became comparable to the Eastern Front. In fact the Ardennes became the Western Front's counterpart to Stalingrad. There was terrible ferocity on both sides, driven by desperation and revenge, in which the normal rules of combat were breached. The Ardennes, involving more than a million men, would prove to be the battle which finally broke the back of the Wehrmacht

La guerre d'Espagne by Antony Beevor( Book )

50 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desde la muerte del general Franco se han publicado muchos estudios sobre aspectos parciales de la guerra civil española, pero ninguna gran síntesis general que pudiera reemplazar a las obras que un día fueron famosas y que hoy, ante el considerable avance realizado por las investigaciones históricas, están desfasadas. El primer mérito de este nuevo libro de Antony Beevor es, precisamente, el de basarse en un serio esfuerzo de documentación que recoge hasta los resultados más recientes de las investigaciones realizadas en España, y fuera de ella, en las últimas décadas, a lo que añade además una serie de informaciones procedentes de documentación hasta ahora desconocida de los archivos soviéticos y alemanes, como las que proceden del diario de guerra privado del coronel Von Richthofen. Es cierto que el de la guerra civil española es un campo en que, como dice el propio autor, «todavía nos rondan los fantasmas de las batallas de propaganda que se libraron hace setenta años», y que nadie escapa a sus efectos. Pero, al margen de representar su propia toma de posición en unos debates que dividen todavía hoy a la sociedad española, este libro va a convertirse, por sus aportaciones, en una obra de referencia indispensable para el conocimiento de nuestra guerra civil

Crete 1941 : the battle and the resistance by Antony Beevor( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bestselling author of Stalingrad and D-Day vividly reconstructs the epic WWII struggle for Crete--reissued with a new introduction. Nazi Germany expected its airborne attack on Crete in 1941 to be a textbook victory based on tactical surprise. Little did they know that the British, using Ultra intercepts, had already laid a careful trap. It should have been the first German defeat of the war when a fatal misunderstanding turned the battle around. Prize-winning historian and bestselling author Antony Beevor lends his gift for storytelling to this important conflict, showing not only how the situation turned bad for Allied forces, but also how ferocious Cretan freedom fighters mounted a heroic resistance. Originally published in 1991, Crete 1941 is a breathtaking account of a momentous battle of World War II"--
