Arabia Felix, the Danish expedition of 1761-1767 by Thorkild Hansen( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 1994 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A riveting account of a landmark expedition that left only one survivor, now back in print for the first time in decades. Arabia Felix is the spellbinding true story of a scientific expedition gone disastrously astray. On a winter morning in 1761 six men leave Copenhagen by sea--a botanist, a philologist, an astronomer, a doctor, an artist, and their manservant--an ill-assorted band of men who dislike and distrust one another from the start. These are the members of the first Danish expedition to Arabia Felix, as Yemen was then known, the first organized foray into a corner of the world unknown to Europeans, an enterprise that had the support of the Danish Crown and was keenly followed throughout Europe. The expedition made its way to Turkey and Egypt, by which time its members were already actively seeking to undercut and even kill one another, before disappearing into the harsh desert that was their destination. Nearly seven years later a single survivor returned to Denmark to find himself a forgotten man and all the specimens that had been sent back ruined by neglect. Based on diaries, notebooks, and sketches that lay unread in Danish archives until the twentieth century, Arabia Felix is both a comedy of intellectual rivalry and very bad manners and an utterly absorbing tale of high adventure. Arabia Felix includes 33 line drawings and maps"--

Hitler moves east, 1941-1943 by Paul Carell( Book )

11 editions published between 1964 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Launched with an immense invasion force of three million men, Germany's surprise attack against Russia in 1941 was planned by Hitler to crush the Soviets within eight weeks. Instead, hampered by major strategic errors, fanatical Soviet resistance, and the severity of Russian winters, "Operation Barbarossa" lingered on until, in 1943 the German fighting machine finally broke down at Stalingrad in one of the most shattering defeats of the century. The author, basing his story on official military records, the memoirs of commanders in both German and Russian armies, and extensive conversations with survivors of all ranks, has drawn a vivid picture of a struggle which, in the size of the forces involved and the ferocity of the fighting, was unparalleled in the history of the war. Along "the greatest front in world history" three armored spearheads advanced simultaneously in a Blitzkrieg aimed at the vital centers of Russia. Their superior direction of operations, the daring mobility of the Panzer Corps, and the toughness of the troops swept the Germans to within 60 miles of Moscow. But in 1942, while his generals were urging a direct attack upon the capital, Hitler ordered them to concentrate upon a drive south into the Ukraine and towards the oil of the Caucasus. The Germans rapidly penetrated as far as Stalingrad on the River Volga, and Hitler became obsessed with the necessity of capturing the city. By September his troops were fighting in its streets. But the Russians resisted heroically, and after breaking out from the city, encircled and captured a number of German divisions and high-ranking officers. It was this sudden collapse at Stalingrad which turned the tide of the war in Russia. The author demonstrates clearly in this definitive account the strategic issues of the campaign, its origins and significance, Hitler's tactical blunders and his generals' achievements in spite of them

He aquí la saga de una nación que soportó siglos de guerras, revoluciones, dispersión, persecuciones, y pese a todo, logró mantener su identidad. El texto, lúcidamente escrito, está vívidamente ilustrado por una exuberante documentación gráfica. La palabra y la imagen se combian así para registrar los extraordinarios acontecimientos que marcan la evolución de un pueblo, cuya historia está íntimamente entretejida con el desarrollo de la civilización occidental. Nos es dado seguir sus huellas desde los días de Abraham a través de la esclavitud y el despertar en Egipto: somos testigos de la conquista de la "Tierra de leche y miel", del esplendor de los días del Reino, bajo David y Salomón, su caída, el exilio de Babilonia, para llegar a la destrucción del Templo de Jerusalén por los romanos. La subsiguiente dispersión del pueblo judío entre los países del Imperio Romano tuvo un profundo efecto, no sólo en su propi historia sino también en la vida intelectual y cultural de Europa, especialmente en los comienzos de la Edad Media. Actuaba como eslabón entre el mundo de la antigüedad clásica y las nuevas naciones que surgían en el Norte. Las Cruzadas trajeron la persecución de los judíos, su expulsión de ciudades y países, su existencia en los ghettos, su intensa concentración en su herencia religiosa y el horísmo en la defensa de su fe. La era del iluminismo trajo consigo la emancipación de los judíos y la liberación de un gran potencial de energías que estuvieron latentes a través de varias generaciones. El surgimiento reciente del Estado de Israel es la culminación de la urgencia de sobrevivir y de un sentido de destino, que fue el rasgo característico del pueblo judío a través de su larga y singular historia. Se trata de un relato de fascinante interés, que arroja luz sobre pasajes de la historia occidental que por mucho tiempo fueron sólo accesibles al estudioso especializado
