The complete illustrated history of World War II : an authoritative account of the deadliest conflicts in human history with analysis of decisive encounters and landmark engagements by Donald Sommerville( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This authoritative book begins with the aftermath of World War I, when new political movements and grievances took shape. The book then covers the war in detail from the advance of Nazi forces across Europe to Operation Barbarossa, and from the battles in North Africa to the war in the Pacific. Life during this time for civilians and prisoners of war is also considered, as is the genocide of these years and the creation of weapons of mass destruction. The final chapter covers the themes which shaped the second half of the 20th century - the establishment of the Iron Curtain, decolonization and the reconstruction of Europe. The brutal history and sheer scope of World War II is well-served by this intelligent and wide-ranging illustrated account of the conflict, told in an accessible style that is perfect for both the general and specialist reader."--Publisher's description

Who's who in the Old Testament by Donald Sommerville( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Old Testament, which deals with the period before the coming of the Christian Messiah, the beliefs of the Christian and Jewish faiths are united. This section of the Bible is made up of the sacred books of the old Israelites, which teach the canonical law (the Torah), tell of the prophets, and include sacred writings. Yet as well as being a powerful instrument of religious instruction common to both the Christian and the Jewish religions, the Old Testament is also a collection of highly exciting personal stories, telling of love and passion, hatred and revenge, violence and tenderness. While every child is familiar with the story of Adam and Eve told in the book of Genesis, there are many fascinating characters in the Old Testament whose stories are less generally known: Jesse the Bethlehemite, for example the father of David. Starting with Aaron, the first high priest, Who's Who in the Old Testament is packed full of details of the colorful lives of these ancient biblical individuals. Among the many included are alluring women such as Bathsheba, tragic figures such as Cain and Abel, stern prophets such as Samuel, law-givers such as Moses, and doomed lovers such as Samson and Delilah. Nor are the lesser characters neglected: Hagar and Lot, Zerubbabel and Chedorlaomer - all tell their tales within the pages of this book. Who's Who in the Old Testament is an enthralling guide to the many charismatic characters who populate the books of the Old Testament. A comprehensive work of reference, the entries are arranged alphabetically for easy access
