Swansong 1945 : a collective diary of the last days of the Third Reich by Walter Kempowski( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Swansong 1945 chronicles the end of Nazi Germany and World War II in Europe through hundreds of letters, diaries, and autobiographical accounts covering four days that fateful spring: Hitler's birthday on April 20, American and Soviet troops meeting at the Elbe on April 25, Hitler's suicide on April 30, and finally the German surrender on May 8. Side by side, we encounter vivid, first-person accounts of civilians fleeing Berlin, ordinary German soldiers determined to fight to the bitter end, American POWs dreaming of home, concentration-camp survivors' first descriptions of their horrific experiences, as well as the intimate thoughts of figures such as Eisenhower, Churchill, Stalin, Joseph Goebbels, and Hitler himself. These firsthand accounts, painstakingly collected and organized by renowned German author Walter Kempowski, provide the raw material of history and present a panoramic view of those tumultuous days. The more than 1,000 extracts include a British soldier writing to his parents to tell them there are no baths but plenty of eggs and chocolate, an American soldier describing "the tremendous burst of lilacs" as he approaches the Elbe, Mussolini wishing Hitler a happy birthday, Eva Braun bragging to a girlfriend about what a "crack shot" she's become, and much more. An extraordinary account of suffering and survival, Swansong 1945 brings to life the end of Nazi Germany and the war in Europe."--Publisher's description

1913 : the year before the storm by Florian Illies( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was the year Henry Ford first put a conveyer belt in his car factory, and the year Louis Armstrong first picked up a trumpet. It was the year Charlie Chaplin signed his first movie contract, and Coco Chanel and Prada opened their first dress shops. It was the year Proust began his opus, Stravinsky wrote The Rite of Spring, and the first Armory Show in New York introduced the world to Picasso and the world of abstract art. It was the year the recreational drug now known as ecstasy was invented. It was 1913, the year before the world plunged into the catastrophic darkness of World War I. In a witty yet moving narrative that progresses month by month through the year, and is interspersed with numerous photos and documentary artifacts (such as Kafka's love letters), Florian Illies ignores the conventions of the stodgy tome so common in 'one year' histories. Forefronting cultural matters as much as politics, he delivers a charming and riveting tale of a world full of hope and unlimited possibility, peopled with amazing characters and radical politics, bristling with new art and new technology, even as ominous storm clouds began to gather."--Jacket
My father's country : the story of a German family by Wibke Bruhns( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August, 1944, Major Hans Georg Klamroth was tried and executed for treason for his part in the July plot against Hitler. Wibke Bruhns, his youngest daughter, was six years old. Decades later, watching a documentary, she saw images of her father on-screen. "I stare at this man with the empty face. I don't know him. But I can see myself in him ... I know I resemble him. I know I wouldn't be here without him. And what do I know about him? Nothing at all." How could her patriotic family succumb to Nazi sympathies? And what made her father finally renounce Hitler? With letters and diaries documenting the story of her family, from the time of Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of the Second World War, she unravels her family's history-- the experience of being German in the last century.--From publisher description
My grandfather's gallery : a family memoir of art and war by Anne Sinclair( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A singular man in the history of modern art, betrayed by Vichy, is the subject of this riveting family memoir On September 20, 1940, one of the most famous European art dealers disembarked in New York, one of hundreds of Jewish refugees fleeing Vichy France. Leaving behind his beloved Paris gallery, Paul Rosenberg had managed to save his family, but his paintings--modern masterpieces by Ce;zanne, Monet, Sisley, and others--were not so fortunate. As he fled, dozens of works were seized by Nazi forces and the art dealer's own legacy was eradicated. More than half a century later, Anne Sinclair uncovered a box filled with letters. "Curious in spite of myself," she writes, "I plunged into these archives, in search of the story of my family. To find out who my mother's father really was. a man hailed as a pioneer in the world of modern art, who then became a pariah in his own country during the Second World War. I was overcome with a desire to fit together the pieces of this French story of art and war." Drawing on her grandfather's intimate correspondence with Picasso, Matisse, Braque, and others, Sinclair takes us on a personal journey through the life of a legendary member of the Parisian art scene in My Grandfather's Gallery. Rosenberg's story is emblematic of millions of Jews, rich and poor, whose lives were indelibly altered by World War II. Sinclair's journey to reclaim her family history paints a picture of modern art on both sides of the Atlantic between the 1920s and 1950s that reframes twentieth-century art history"
54 by Wu Ming (Writers collective)( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Hollywood, Cary Grant has grown weary of cinema's glamour, but Her Majesty's Secret Service will break his malaise with a bizarre diplomatic mission. In Naples, Lucky Luciano fixes horse races and begins to lay the foundation for the global heroin trade. And in Bologna, a bartender searches for true love and his missing communist father. It is 1954--the height of the Cold War--and these three are on a path toward an intersection that will involve the nascent KGB, Joseph McCarthy, Frances Farmer, Parisian lowlifes, Marshal Tito, David Niven, James Bond, and a very special television set called the McGuffin Electric. This book is a political thriller, a comic spy caper, a romance, and a social satire.--From publisher description

7 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Napoleon's exile by Patrick Rambaud( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patrick Rambaud closes his epic trilogy, which began with The Battle, winner of the Prix Goncourt and the Grand Prix Roman de l'Acadrmie Francaise, and The Retreat, with this stunningly intimate look at Napoleon. In 1814 Napoleon is racing back to Paris from the debacle of his Russian invasion. A plot afoot in the capital--to return a royal to the throne--succeeds, and Napoleon's marshals force him to abdicate and go into exile. Octave Senecal, Napoleon's loyal aide and savior and one of Rambaud's marvelous creations, tells the tale of their journey south through the angry, mob-filled countryside to Elba, a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. Here Patrick Rambaud brings to life not the Napoleon of the history books, but Napoleon the man--a man horribly bored by exile, gambling with his mother to pass the time, spearing the occasional tuna with local fishermen, and fretting constantly that secret agents and murderers surround him. He is soon planning his escape, while in France his former soldiers spend their evenings drinking to the return of "l'absent." They won't have long to wait."--Publisher's website

Red love : the story of an East German family by Maxim Leo( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Growing up in East Berlin, Maxim Leo knew not to ask questions. All he knew was that his rebellious parents, Wolf and Anne, with their dyed hair, leather jackets and insistence he call them by their first names, were a bit embarrassing. That there were some places you couldn't play; certain things you didn't say. Now, married with two children and the Wall a distant memory, Maxim decides to find the answers to the questions he couldn't ask. Why did his parents, once passionately in love, grow apart? Why did his father become so angry, and his mother quit her career in journalism? And why did his grandfather Gerhard, the Socialist war hero, turn into a stranger? The story he unearths is, like his country's past, one of hopes, lies, cruelties, betrayals but also love. In Red Love he captures, with warmth and unflinching honesty, why so many dreamed the GDR would be a new world and why, in the end, it fell apart."--Jacket
