Hitler, 1936-45 : nemesis by Ian Kershaw( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in Polish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Summer 1936: the eyes of the world were trained on Berlin, elaborately decked out for the Olympic Games. Aside from the swastikas unfurled inside and outside the massive stadium, visitors to the games saw scant evidence of a repressive regime. Nazi Germany and its unchallenged leader, Adolf Hitler, were on their best behavior. Yet, away from the spectacle in Berlin, an ominous war machine was in the making." "As Ian Kershaw opens this monumental volume, large segments of the German population idolize Hitler for bringing the nation out of economic despair. Supported by four pillars of the Nazi regime -- the Party, the armed forces, the industrial cartels, and the civil service -- Hitler is poised to realize his Mephistophelian vision: the subjugation of Europe under the Thousand Year Reich and, in the process, the annihilation of the Jews. Meanwhile, a continent still carrying the scars of the First World War largely ignores his blueprints for conquest." "Soon Hitler embarks on expansion. With chilling efficiency, he annexes Austria with the support of rabid local Nazis, and then, after hoodwinking European leaders in Munich, undertakes a lightning conquest of Czechoslovakia. His invasion of Poland plunges Europe headlong into a cataclysmic war, a war that Hitler is convinced he alone has the genius to conduct. In unsparing prose, Kershaw describes the slaughter of conquered troops and civilians alike as German soldiers, accompanied by fanatical SS units, sweep into country after country." "For three years, Hitler's armies have the upper hand. But once the tides of battle turn in favor of the Allies, Hitler, no longer the invincible warlord, becomes an increasingly desperate gambler. Rarely leaving his "Wolf's Lair" he continues to mastermind the war, his public appearances and radio broadcasts limited to whipping up fervor among his countrymen against Jews, "Bolsheviks," and others deemed enemies of the Aryan race."

Sekret Kopernika : jak się zaczęła rewolucja naukowa by Jack Repcheck( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Polish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicolaus Copernicus gave the world perhaps the most important scientific insight of the modern age, the theory that the earth and the other planets revolve around the sun, and that the earth rotates on its axis every 24 hours--nearly everyone then believed that a perfectly still earth rested in the middle of the cosmos, where all the heavenly bodies revolved around it. A transcendent genius, Copernicus was also a flawed and conflicted person. During the tumultuous years of the early Reformation, he may have been sympathetic to the teachings of the Lutherans. Supremely confident intellectually, he hesitated to disseminate his work--in fact, he kept it a secret, and the manuscript containing his theory, which he refined for at least twenty years, remained "hidden among my things." It might never have been published if not for the enthusiasm of a young mathematician who journeyed hundreds of miles to meet him.--From publisher description

The lost life of Eva Braun by Angela Lambert( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in Polish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eva Braun is one of history's most famous nonentities. She has been dismissed as a racist, feather-headed shop girl, and yet six decades after her death her name is still instantly recognizable. She left her convent school at the age of seventeen and met Hitler a few months later. She became his mistress before she was twenty. How did unsophisticated little Fräulein Braun, 23 years his junior, hold the most powerful man in Europe in an exclusive relationship that lasted from 1932 until their joint suicide? Were they really lovers, and what were the background influences and psychological tensions of the middle-class Catholic girl from Munich who shared his intimate life? How can her ordinariness and apparent decency be reconciled with an unshakeable loyalty to the monster she loved?--From publisher description

"Drawing on a wealth of source material and knowledge of the extent to which ULTRA intelligence influenced the conduct of the campaign, the Author comes up with not only a compelling narrative but radical conclusions. Using no more statistical data than necessary, he puts forward convincing arguments that the situation was never as parlous nor the struggle so evenly balanced as was perceived at the time and has consistently been described since."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1996 in Polish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friday the thirteenth of May was most unlucky day for Sergeant Caleb Martin of Kingsmarkham CID. That day he confiscated a replica gun from his son's school briefcase and lost his life in a bank robbery -- the first link in a chain of events which led to a series of deaths. When three people are discovered shot at Tancred House, Chief Inspector Wexford suspects a connection between the two apparently unrelated crimes. But only the seventeen-year-old daughter of one of the victims survives to provide the most confusing of clues. Although Wexford is very taken with the crime's only witness, Daisy Hoy, his feelings do not prevent his deductive powers from functioning with customary intuitive precision
The anatomy of fascism by Robert O Paxton( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in Polish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is fascism? Many authors have proposed succinct but abstract definitions. Robert O. Paxton prefers to start with concrete historical experience. He focuses more on what fascists did than on what they said. Their first uniformed bands beat up "enemies of the nation," such as communists and foreign immigrants, during the tense days after 1918 when the liberal democracies of Europe were struggling with the aftershocks of World War I. Fascist parties could not approach power, however, without the complicity of conservatives willing to sacrifice the rule of law for security." "Paxton makes clear the sequence of steps by which fascists and conservatives together formed regimes in Italy and Germany, and why fascists remained out of power elsewhere." "This book, based on a lifetime of research, will have a lasting impact on our understanding of twentieth-century history."--Jacket
