GERMANY AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR: VOLUME VIII

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) The Eastern Front 1943-1944: Edited by Karl-Heinz Frieser and written by a team of distinguished German historians, this eighth volume in the magisterial Germany and Second World War series deals with one of the most eventful phases of the Second World War: the battles on the eastern front in 1943 and 1944. In no other period of the war, apart from its concluding phase in 1945, did the Wehrmacht suffer such enormous losses. The land battles of those years, first and foremost the battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943, were among the biggest in world history. In the winter of 1943/44 the Red Army showed itself for the first time capable of conducting large-scale offensives against all German army groups simultaneously. The dramatic climax was reached in the summer of 1944, when the collapse of Army Group Centre led to what was then the heaviest defeat in German military history.

GERMANY AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR: VOLUME IX PART II

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) German Wartime Society 1939-1945: Exploitation, Interpretations, Exclusion. Written by a team of distinguished German historians and edited by Jörg Echternkamp. The war affected the lives and shaped the experience of millions of individuals in Germany. This volume examines how the minds and behaviour of individuals were moulded by the Party as the Reich took the road to Total War. The huge numbers of German workers conscripted into the Wehrmacht were replaced with forced foreign workers and slave labourers and concentration camp prisoners. The interaction in everyday life between German civilian society and these coerced groups is explored, as is that society's relationship to the Holocaust. The role of the Party, administration, police, and courts in providing for the vast numbers of those rendered homeless by air attack, in bolstering civilian morale with 'miracle revenge weapons' propaganda, and in maintaining order in a society in disintegration is reviewed in detail. The volume concludes with an account of the various forms of resistance to Hitler's regime, in society and the military, culminating in the failed attempt on his life in July 1944.

THE EICHMANN TRIAL DIARY: A CHRONICLE OF THE HOLOCAUST

By Sergio Minerbi and Translator Robert Miller

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) Fifty years ago, in April 1961, the trial of Adolf Eichmann suddenly revealed to a worldwide audience in all its tragic detail, and for most people for the first time, the shocking reality of the horrors of the Nazi Final Solution. At the time it was not yet known by its current name: the Holocaust or the Shoah. Sergio Minerbi, a young Israeli of Italian origin who had emigrated to Palestine in 1947 was commissioned to cover the trial for Italian State Radio RAI. His work constitutes both a daily chronicle of the court proceedings with a vivid description of the atmosphere inside the courtroom and within the city of Jerusalem that conveys a realistic and vivid picture of the historic proceedings.

HITLER'S CHANCELLERY: A PALACE TO LAST A THOUSAND YEARS

By Ronald Pawly

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) The most iconic building of the Third Reich, Hitler's New State Chancellery, was designed by Albert Speer specifically to embody the power and arrogance of the new Nazi regime. The dimensions and decoration of its state apartments were devised to instil awe in the visitor, and it was intended to be the first working model for Germania - capital city of the Thousand-Year Reich. Instead, it was completely destroyed after barely ten years. Today its very site can only be located with great difficulty.
