Guido Knopp – Geheimnisse des Dritten Reichs

Language: Deutsch | Audiobook in MP3 / 128 kbps | 522.39 MB

Beschreibung: Auf seiner Suche nach Antworten auf die Rätsel der NS-Zeit hat Guido Knopp bisher unzugängliche Archive durchforstet und neue Dokumente gefunden. So widmet er sich etwa Adolf Hitlers von ihm nach Kräften verschleierten Familienverhältnissen, der Akte Odessa, der Legende Rommel sowie neu entdeckten Täuschungen Albert Speers.
Wieder gelingt es Guido Knopp, mit hervorragend recherchierten und spannend präsentierten Erkenntnissen zur deutschen Geschichte einem breiten Publikum neue Aspekte des NS-Staates aufzuzeigen.

John F. Kennedy, „Unter Deutschen: Reisetagebücher und Briefe1937-1945“

2013 | ASIN: B00CMYCUI2 | 92 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Erstmals veröffentlicht
John F. Kennedy, geboren 1917, unternahm bereits als junger Mann Reisen nach Deutschland: im Sommer 1937 als Student; im August 1939, unmittelbar vor Kriegsbeginn, als sein Vater Botschafter in Großbritannien war; sowie im Juli und August 1945, wenige Wochen nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges, als Korrespondent. Von diesen drei Reisen hinterließ Kennedy historisch wie persönlich faszinierende Zeugnisse, die hier erstmals veröffentlicht werden und zeigen, welche Eindrücke der spätere Präsident der USA von Deutschland gewann. Seine Deutschland- und Europapolitik und auch seine Berliner Rede aus dem Jahr 1963 sind erst vor diesem Hintergrund richtig zu verstehen.
“Ich sagte gestern, ich würde meinem Nachfolger eine Mitteilung mit der Aufschrift hinterlassen: ‘Bei Mutlosigkeit öffnen.’ Und darin werden nur drei Worte stehen: ‘Geh nach Deutschland!’ Vielleicht werde ich diesen Brief eines Tages selbst aufmachen.” John F. Kennedy, 1963

Ralph Jessen, Hedwig Richter, „Voting for Hitler and Stalin: Elections under 20th Century Dictatorships“

2012 | ISBN: 3593394898 | 349 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Dictatorships throughout the twentieth century—including Mussolini’s Italy, the Third Reich, the Soviet Union, Poland, and East Germany—held elections. But were they more than rituals of participation without the slightest effect on the distribution of power? Why did political regimes radically opposed to liberal democracy feel the need to imitate their enemies? Offering significant insights into absolutist state governance, Voting for Hitler and Stalin thoroughly investigates the remarkable, paradoxical phenomenon of dictatorial elections, revealing the many ways they transcended mere propaganda.

Revolutionary Summer: The Birth of American Independence by Joseph J. Ellis

Knopf | 2013 | ISBN: 0307701220 | 240 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

A distinctive portrait of the crescendo moment in American history from the Pulitzer-winning American historian, Joseph Ellis.
The summer months of 1776 witnessed the most consequential events in the story of our country’s founding. While the thirteen colonies came together and agreed to secede from the British Empire, the British were dispatching the largest armada ever to cross the Atlantic to crush the rebellion in the cradle. The Continental Congress and the Continental Army were forced to make decisions on the run, improvising as history congealed around them. In a brilliant and seamless narrative, Ellis meticulously examines the most influential figures in this propitious moment, including George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Britain’s Admiral Lord Richard and General William Howe. He weaves together the political and military experiences as two sides of a single story, and shows how events on one front influenced outcomes on the other.
Revolutionary Summer tells an old story in a new way, with a freshness at once colorful and compelling.
