Outside Verdun

Outside Verdun [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Outside Verdun by Arnold Zweig Book Summary:

A forgotten masterpiece of First World War German literature, Outside Verdun is an utterly gripping, heart-breaking story of revenge and sacrifice based on the author's own first-hand experiences of combat, published in the anniversary year of the commencement of hostilities. 'The war, an operation instigated by men, still felt to him like a storm decreed by fate, an unleashing of powerful elements, unaccountable and beyond criticism.' A stunning new translation, this is the first UK publication of a forgotten masterpiece of First World War German literature in the anniversary year of the commencement of hostilities. Arnold Zweig's Outside Verdun was first published in 1933 and is entirely based on his own, first-hand experiences of the German army during World War 1. Following the unlawful killing of his younger brother by his own superiors, Lieutenant Kroysing swears revenge, using his influence to arrange for his brother's unit, normally safely behind the lines, to be reassigned to the fortress at Douaumont, in the very heart of the battle for France. Bertin, a lowly but educated Jewish private in a labour battalion, through whose eyes the story unfolds, is the innocent man caught in the cross-fire. Outside Verdun not only explores the heart-breaking tragedy of one individual trapped in a nightmare of industrialised warfare but also reveals the iniquities of German society in microcosm, with all its injustice, brutality, anti-Semitism and incompetence. Fiona Rintoul's brilliant translation captures all the subtleties, cadences and detachment of Zweig's masterful prose.

From the Marne to Verdun

Outside Verdun [Pdf/ePub] eBook

From the Marne to Verdun by Ian Sumner Book Summary:

Charles Delverts diary records his career as a front-line officer in the French army fighting the Germans during the First World War. It is one of the classic accounts of the war in French or indeed in any other language, and it has not been translated into English before. In precise, graphic detail he sets down his wartime experiences and those of his men. He describes the relentless emotional and physical strain of active service and the extraordinary courage and endurance required in battle. His account is essential reading for anyone who is keen to gain a direct insight into the Great War from the French soldier's point of view, and it bears comparison with the best-known English and German memoirs and journals of the Great War.

With the German Guns

Outside Verdun [Pdf/ePub] eBook

With the German Guns by Herbert Sulzbach Book Summary:

“An invaluable eye-witness account of life at the lower levels of the German Army during the First World War.”—HistoryOfWar.org At once harrowing and lighthearted, Herbert Sulzbach’s exceptional diary has been highly praised since its original publication in Germany in 1935. With the reprint of this classic account of trench warfare, it records the pride and exhilaration of what to him was the fight for a just cause. It is one of the very few available records of an ordinary German soldier during the First World War. “One of the most notable books on the Great War. It is a book which finely expressed the true soldierly spirit on its highest level; the combination of a high sense of duty, courage, fairness and chivalry.”—Sir Basil Liddell Hart “Herbert Sulzbach’s first person diary focuses on four years of trench warfare and is a valuable contribution to the overall individual story of the First World War, more so than many other such accounts perhaps, as the author was German.”—OCAD Militaria Collectors Resources “A first-class personal account of Herbert Sulzbach’s war seen through his diaries. There is much insight into both his and the German soldier’s attitude to war and events . . . a very readable narrative and adds to the library of sources that are invaluable to counter the legions of postmodern re-evaluations of the German soldier.”—Battlefield Guide

Rendezvous with Death

Outside Verdun [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Rendezvous with Death by Mark W. Van Wienen Book Summary:

This masterfully assembled volume, arranged chronologically, reveals American poets' shifting, conflicting reactions to the war and highlights their efforts to shape U.S. policies and define American attitudes. In his introduction, Mark W. Van Wienen describes the rapid, politically charged responses possible in a culture attuned to poetry. His historical and biographical notes provide a sturdy framework for the study of poetry's role in social activism and change during the "war to end war." The most complete resource of its kind, Rendezvous with Death brings together poetry originally published in little magazines, labor journals, newspapers, and wartime anthologies. Alight with sorrow, grace, silliness, satire, pride, and anger, works by IWW members, sock poets, pacifists, and protestors take their places next to those by Edith Wharton, Alan Seeger, Wallace Stevens, James Weldon Johnson, Amy Lowell, and Claude McKay.

The Last Tram on Dorchester Street

Outside Verdun [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Last Tram on Dorchester Street by John Charles Gifford Book Summary:

In the heart of Montreal in 1953, private investigator Eddie Wade witnesses the brutal late-night murder of Saul Blumenthal, a Jewish German immigrant. The police suddenly and mysteriously close the case on this unsolved murder in less than twenty-four hours. Smelling a rat, Eddie decides to investigate and find justice for the victim. But Eddie soon lands in the center of a miasma of deception and ruthlessness where the edge between justice and revenge is blurred and the threshold leading to redemption is only a faint hope. Deep and brooding secrets lurk in Montreal’s Mile End neighborhood, and as Eddie discovers more about the victim and his past, he must confront the darkness that lies within his own soul. With the facts adding up to an unexpected conclusion, Eddie realizes that more than just his investigation is at stake. Someone’s got it in for him, and Eddie had better tread carefully or he may be the next one put on ice. Written in the tradition of the hard-boiled school of detective fiction, Eddie Wade follows in the footsteps of Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, and Mike Hammer in The Last Tram on Dorchester Street.

The Great Deception

Outside Verdun [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Great Deception by Christopher Booker,Richard North Book Summary:

As the European Union moves next year towards adopting the constitution which will mark its final emergence as a "United States of Europe." The Great Deception shows how the most ambitious political project of our time has, for more than 50 years, been based on a colossal confidence trick--the systematic concealment from the peoples of Europe of what the aim of this project has always been since its inception in the late 1940s. As it reveals for the first time the true story behind the long-term plan to build a politically united Europe, the authors show how all previous attempts to reconstruct the history of this project--whether written by Europhiles of Eurosceptics--have got it wrong, at almost every step along the way. With all the suspense of a detective story, drawing on thousands of books, paper and official documents, many of which have only become publicly available in the past few years, the book traces how a handful of determined visionaries set out more than half a century ago to weld the countries of Europe into a single political state. The Great Deception should immediately become a standard reference work for all students of politics. Yet so disturbing is the picture that emerges that, at a time when Britain's future in the EU is a subject of national debate, it will also spark much wider concern.
