Most widely held works by Richard Matthews
Animal farm by George Orwell( Recording )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fueled by Orwell's intense disillusionment with Soviet Communism, Animal Farm is a nearly perfect piece of writing, both an engaging story and an allegory that actually works. When the downtrodden beasts of Manor Farm oust their drunken human master and take over management of the land, all are awash in collectivist zeal
Austerlitz by W. G Sebald( Recording )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A man finds that he is the child of Holocaust victims instead of a Welsh family, and searches for his true identity
Castles of steel : Britain, Germany, and the winning of the Great War at sea by Robert K Massie( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the sea war between Germany and Britain. The face-off between two great navies of dreadnoughts--fast battleships that were defended by big guns only--plays like a Homeric battle between Cyclops, the warring powers hurling titanic levels of firepower in battles that produced such catastrophes as Gallipoli and Jutland. Massie spins a tale of intricate strategy, and examines the larger-than-life personalities--Churchill and Jellicoe among the Brits, and Pohl and Tirpitz among the Germans--who masterminded these battles that forever changed the practice of war"--Container
