Hitler's stormtroopers : the SA, the Nazis' Brownshirts, 1922-1945 by Jean-Denis Lepage( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sturm Abteilung der NSDAP (SA, assault battalion of the Nazi party) - created in August 1920 - were squads of strong arms intended to protect the Nazis' meetings, to provoke disturbance, to break up other parties' meetings, and to attack and assault political opponents as part of a deliberate campaign of intimidation. After 1925 the name Braunhemden (Brownshirts) was also given to its members because of the colour of their uniforms. Under the leadership of Hitler's close political associate, Ernst Rohm, the SA grew to become a huge and radical paramilitary force. This book answers several questions concerning the SA. How did the SA become a national movement? What was the relationship between Rohm and Hitler? What role did the SA play in providing Hitler with the keys to power? After the seizure of power by the Nazis on January 30, 1933, what was the function of the Brownshirts? Why did the brutal and scandalous Ernst Rohm stand in Hitler's way? What became of the SA after the bloody purge of June 1934, the notorious 'Night of the Long Knives'?"--Publisher's description

Hitler Youth, 1922-1945 : an illustrated history by Jean-Denis Lepage( )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Nazi regime's swift rise to power, no single target of nazification took higher priority than Germany's young people. Well aware that the Nazi party could thrive only through the support of future generations, Hitler instituted a youth movement, the Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth), which indoctrinated the easily malleable students of Germany's schools and universities. Along with its female counterpart, the Bund deutscher Madel (League of German Girls), the Hitler Youth produced many thousands of young Germans who were deeply and fanatically imbued with the Nazi racist ideology. This heavily illustrated book outlines the history and development of the Hitler Youth from its origins in 1922 until it was disbanded by the allied powers in 1945"--Jacket
Castles and fortified cities of medieval Europe : an illustrated history by Jean-Denis Lepage( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Middle Ages, castles and other fortified buildings were a common feature of the European landscape. As central powers rose and fell, the insecurity of the times inspired a revival of fortifications first introduced in the Roman Empire. Despite limitations in construction techniques and manpower, medieval fortifications were continuously adapted to meet new political circumstances and weapons technology. Here is an illustrated guide to the architecture of medieval fortifications, from the first castles to the fortified cities of the 15th and 16th centuries. In hundreds of detailed and thoroughly researched pen-and-ink drawings, historian and artist Jean-Denis G.G. Lepage introduces the reader to the development and diversity of European medieval military architecture. Each drawing is accompanied by meticulous descriptions of types of buildings (e.g., motte-and-bailey castles), built-in defenses (arrow slits, pepper-pot towers), and particular castles and cities (the Mont-Saint-Michel, the city of Jerusalem). Elements of medieval warfare and weaponry are also covered in drawings and text."--Page 4 of cover
