Russia's heroes by Albert Axell( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Russian and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Story of the ordinary and extraordinary men and women soldiers of Russia; the snipers who engaged in duels in No Man's Land; Cossack cavalry regiments crossing the ice at night to raid ammunition dumps; pilots out of ammunition using their propellers to cut off the tailplanes of enemy aircraft, soldiers who fought in an insane, giant conflict, the largest theatre of war the world has ever seen in which 27 million died."--Jacket
Marshal Zhukov : the man who beat Hitler by Albert Axell( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and Russian and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgi Zhukov was a great general in the most devastating war in history. General Eisenhower said the world owed a greater debt to Zhukov than to any other military figure for the victory over Nazi Germany." "A jealous Stalin viewed him differently. Despite all Zhukov's war-time achievements and decorations, on his return from the Eastern front he was declared a non-person, and sent on futile appointments far away from Moscow." "Russia's greatest modern hero was neglected by the media, his huge role in the victory over Hitler's Germany was slighted by official histories and his memoirs were censored." "Zhukov's leadership on the field was shown in such epic battles as Moscow, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin. Marshal Zhukov: The Man Who Beat Hitler goes beyond the battlefield to tell the remarkable story of one of the most important and influential - yet often forgotten - figures of the Second World War."--BOOK JACKET
Kamikaze : Japan's suicide gods by Albert Axell( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The use of the Japanese Kamikaze pilots during the Second World War was one of the most dramatic and chilling developments of the war. But who were the Kamikaze pilots and what motivated them to make the ultimate sacrifice?" "The call for Kamikaze pilots drew a staggering response. Three times as many applied for suicide flights as the number of planes available. The authors of Kamikaze: Japan's Suicide Gods look into the hearts and minds of the Kamikaze pilots, viewed in the full context of the war and the Japanese cultures and traditions out of which the Kamikaze emerged. Based on interviews with Kamikaze survivors, unpublished memoirs, and documents not previously open to the public, the book portrays one of the most extraordinary and astonishing events in history, an event that has made Kamikaze a household word around the world." "In the present era of frequent suicide bombers, the authors show parallels between the Kamikaze and the Al-Qaeda activists of the September 11 attacks. Of special interest, the book reveals not only the confidential suicide instructions issued to the Kamikaze pilots, but also points to similarities with the instructions found in the luggage of one of the leaders of the September 11 suicide attacks."--Jacket
