Steel cavalry : the 8th (New Brunswick) Hussars and the Italian Campaign

By Lee A Windsor

New Brunswick military heritage series, 18. "The story of the transformation of a horse cavalry unit into one of Canada's most famous armoured regiments. Twentieth-century warfare is epitomized by the image of Allied tanks growling across the countryside, engaging their Nazi counterparts. One of the most storied of such regiments is the 8th (New Brunswick) hussars. Founded in 1848 as the first volunteer cavalry regiment in British North America, the hussars began the Second World War as a Motorcycle Regiment before converting to tanks in 1941. First posted to Italy in late 1943, the regiment was introduced to war near Ortona. They formed part of the great drive beyond Monte Cassino to Rome. But their reputation was forged at the Gothic Line and Coriano Ridge during two weeks that marked their fiercest and bloodiest trial of the war."--Publisher's website.. First Edition. Paperbound.

Afterlife -- Acknowledgments -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Index. Leni Riefenstahl, the woman best known as "Hitler's filmmaker," is one of the most controversial personalities of the twentieth century. Her story is one of huge talent and huger ambition, one that probes the sometimes blurred borders dividing art and beauty from truth and humanity. Two of her films, Olympia and Triumph of the Will, are universally regarded as among the greatest and most innovative documentaries ever made, but they are also insidious glorifications of Hitler and the Third Reich. Relying on new sources--including interviews with her colleagues and intimate friends, as well as on previously unknown recordings of Riefenstahl herself--biographer Bach untangles the truths and lies behind this gifted woman's lifelong self-vindication as an apolitical artist who claimed she knew nothing of the Holocaust and denied her complicity with the criminal regime she both used and sanctified.--From publisher description.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8 vo, (25cm.). Biography.

THE SEARCH FOR HEINRICH STIEF : a genealogist on the Loose, Signed By Author

By Les Bowser

Halifax. Nova Scotia: Nimbus Publishing, 2001. pict paper cover, xiv, 274 pages : illustrations, maps, signed by author, sine copy, Heinrich and Regina Stief left their homeland in 1749 and settled in Pennsylvania. From there, they and a small band of fellow settlers migrated to the rough terrain around New Brunswick's Petitcodiac River. Faced with starvation, frigid winters, and abandonment by their sponsors — among them Benjamin Franklin — the settlers defied the odds by not only surviving but prospering. Steeves descendants now number upwards of 150,000 worldwide. Heinrich's tale has been told so many times that parts have become legend. From the stories his earliest descendants told around the fire to the ones family historians have written and published since then, the facts surrounding Heinrich Stief, his roots, and his exploits have become confused, murky, and half remembered. Certain pieces of the puzzle have always eluded genealogists. Recently a Stief family descendant with a knack for research and more than his share of luck has uncovered a piece of history that is as significant as it was elusive. Here, then, is Heinrich Stief's story, told as never before.. First Edition. Paperbound. Fine. 8 Vo,.. Genealogy.
