The rise and fall of the Third Reich; a history of Nazi Germany by William L Shirer( Book )

History of Nazi Germany
Crusade in Europe by Dwight D Eisenhower( Book )

1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 3,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the pages of this book the single most important military figure of World War II has written the story that is destined to become the single most important record of that conflict. Here, from the hand of the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces, is the complete story of the war as Eisenhower planned it and lived it. Through his eyes you can now see the whole gigantic drama of the war -- the strategy, the battles, the moments of fateful decision. Yet this is a warm and richly personal account. No personality among all those described is more clearly defined than that of Eisenhower himself. Through his own account of the long months of waiting and planning and working, through his description of the gradual formation of the great plans for victory, through his record of the history-making hours when the machinery of battle had been launched and could no longer be recalled, you come to know this great man as no one else could describe him to you. - Jacket flap

The gifts of the Jews : how a tribe of desert nomads changed the way everyone thinks and feels by Thomas Cahill( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gifts of the Jews reveals the critical change that made western civilization possible. Within the matrix of ancient religions and philosophies, life was seen as part of an endless cycle of birth and death; time was like a wheel, spinning ceaselessly. Yet somehow, the ancient Jews began to see time differently. For them, time had a beginning and an end; it was a narrative, whose triumphant conclusion would come in the future. From this insight came a new conception of men and women as individuals with unique destinies--a conception that would inform the Declaration of Independence--and our hopeful belief in progress and the sense that tomorrow can be better than today. As Thomas Cahill narrates this momentous shift, he also explains the real significance of such Biblical figures as Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the Pharaoh, Joshua, Isaiah, and Jeremiah

Wartime : understanding and behavior in the Second World War by Paul Fussell( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... in 'Wartime, ' Fussell turns to the Second World War, the conflict he himself fought in, to weave a narrative that is both more intensely personal and more wide-ranging ... Here Fussell examines the immediate impact of the war on common soldiers and civilians. He describes the psychological and emotional atmosphere of World War II. He analyzes the wishful thinking and the euphemisms people needed to deal with unacceptable reality (the early belief, for instance, that the war could be won by 'precision bombing, ' that is, by long distance); he describes the abnormally intense frustration of desire and some of the means by which desire was satisfied; and, most important, he emphasizes the damage the war did to intellect, discrimination, honesty, individuality, complexity, ambiguity and wit ... He examines ... how the great privations of wartime (when oranges would be raffled off as valued prizes) resulted in roccoco prose styles that dwelt longingly on lavish dinners, and how the 'high-mindedness' of the era and the almost pathological need to 'accentuate the positive' invited the downfall of the acerbic H.L. Mencken and the ascent of E.B. White. He also offers astute commentary on Edmund Wilson's argument with Archibald MacLeish, Cyril Connolly's 'Horizon' magazine, the war poetry of Randall Jarrell and Louis Simpson, and many other aspects of the wartime literary world ... For the past fifty years, the Allied war has been sanitized and romanticized almost beyond recognition by 'the sentimental, the loony patriotic, the ignorant, and the bloodthirsty.' Americans, he says, have never understood what the Second World War was really like ... [and] he offers such an understanding
