Après l'attentat manqué contre Hitler, le 20 juillet 1944, l'Allemagne sombre dans la folie meurtrière et la destruction. C'est un pays tout entier qui se transforme en immense charnier. Pourtant, le régime tient. La Wehrmacht continue d'envoyer des soldats combattre sur le front jusqu'à la capitulation du 8 mai 1945. Comment expliquer l'incroyable résistance du régime nazi au milieu des décombres ? C'est pour répondre à cette énigme que le grand historien britannique fan Kershaw a entrepris ce vaste récit des derniers mois de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Une brillante réflexion sur l'interminable agonie du régime nazi.

As early as 1941, Allied victory in World War II seemed all but assured. How and why, then, did the Germans prolong the barbaric conflict for three and a half more years? In The German War, acclaimed historian Nicholas Stargardt draws on an extraordinary range of primary source materials—personal diaries, court records, and military correspondence—to answer this question. He offers an unprecedented portrait of wartime Germany, bringing the hopes and expectations of the German people—from infantrymen and tank commanders on the Eastern front to civilians on the home front—to vivid life. While most historians identify the German defeat at Stalingrad as the moment when the average German citizen turned against the war effort, Stargardt demonstrates that the Wehrmacht in fact retained the staunch support of the patriotic German populace until the bitter end. Astonishing in its breadth and humanity, The German War is a groundbreaking new interpretation of what drove the Germans to fight—and keep fighting—for a lost cause.

La Red Bali Express est le surnom donné par les Américains à la route de ravitaillement mise en place entre les plages du débarquement et la ligne de front, d'abord dans le Cotentin en Normandie puis dans toute la France. En attendant la fin des réparations du réseau ferré, la route est l'unique moyen de ravitaillement des 28 divisions alliées qui ont besoin chacune de 750 tonnes de ravitaillement chaque jour, soit un total quotidien de 12 500 tonnes. L'ouvrage détaille avec précision tous les moyens logistiques mis en oeuvre par l'armée américaine du Liberty ship à la locomotive en passant par les ports flottants et les camions GMC.

"Except for a brief period during the Rhineland battle, the First Canadian Army was the smallest to serve under Eisenhower's command. The Canadian component never totalled more than 185,000 of the four million Allied troops serving in Northwest Europe. It is evident, however, that the divisions of 2nd Canadian Corps played a role disproportionate to their numbers. Their contribution to operations designed to secure the channel ports and open the approaches to Antwerp together with the battles in the Rhineland place them among the most heavily committed and sorely tried divisions in the Allied armies. By the end of 1944 3rd Canadian Division had suffered the highest number of casualties in 21 Army Group with 2nd Canadian Division ranking a close second. In the armoured divisions, 4th Canadian was at the top of the list as was 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade among the independent tank brigades. Overall Canadian casualties were 20 per cent higher than in comparable British formations. This was a direct result of the much greater number of days that Canadian units were involved in close combat."--Jacket.

“Magisterial . . . anyone who wishes to understand the Third Reich must read Kershaw.”—Niall Ferguson “The Hitler biography of the twenty-first century” (Richard J. Evans), Ian Kershaw’s Hitler is a one-volume masterpiece that will become the standard work. From Hitler’s origins as a failed artist in fin-de-siecle Vienna to the terrifying last days in his Berlin bunker, Kershaw’s richly illustrated biography is a mesmerizing portrait of how Hitler attained, exercised, and retained power. Drawing on previously untapped sources, such as Goebbels’s diaries, Kershaw addresses the crucial questions about the unique nature of Nazi radicalism, about the Holocaust, and about the poisoned European world that allowed Hitler to operate so effectively.

"On December, 16, 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes. He believed he could split the Allies by driving all the way to Antwerp, then force the Canadians and the British out of the war. Although his generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. Many were exultant at the prospect of striking back. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in western Europe."--Jacket.

"A tale drenched in drama and blood, heroism and cowardice, loyalty and betrayal."—Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Beevor's latest book Ardennes 1944: The Battle of the Bulge is now available from Viking Books The Red Army had much to avenge when it finally reached the frontiers of the Third Reich in January 1945. Frenzied by their terrible experiences with Wehrmacht and SS brutality, they wreaked havoc—tanks crushing refugee columns, mass rape, pillage, and unimaginable destruction. Hundreds of thousands of women are children froze to death or were massacred; more than seven million fled westward from the fury of the Red Army. It was the most terrifying example of fire and sword ever known. Antony Beevor has reconstructed the experiences of those millions caught up in the nightmare of the Third Reich's final collapse. The Fall of Berlin is a terrible story of pride, stupidity, fanaticism, revenge, and savagery, yet it is also one of astonishing endurance, self-sacrifice, and survival against all odds.

O jornalista britânico Thomas Harding conta a história de duas vidas que se cruzam ao final de um dos episódios mais sangrentos da história - a de Hanns Alexander, judeu-alemão que se mudou para a Inglaterra, nos anos 1930 e, ao final do conflito, liderou uma caçada contra os nazistas a serviço do exército britânico, e a de Rudolf Höss, fazendeiro e soldado que se tornou comandante-chefe de Auschwitz, o maior campo de extermínio de judeus da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Sobrinho-neto de Hanns, Harding empreendeu uma ampla pesquisa para escrever a biografia dessas duas figuras díspares, com imparcialidade e sem maniqueísmo. O resultado é uma narrativa eletrizante que recebeu críticas positivas dos principais jornais norte-americanos e britânicos e figurou em importantes listas dos mais vendidos nos EUA e na Europa.

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice For eight weeks in 1945, as Berlin fell to the Russian army, a young woman kept a daily record of life in her apartment building and among its residents. "With bald honesty and brutal lyricism" (Elle), the anonymous author depicts her fellow Berliners in all their humanity, as well as their cravenness, corrupted first by hunger and then by the Russians. "Spare and unpredictable, minutely observed and utterly free of self-pity" (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland), A Woman in Berlin tells of the complex relationship between civilians and an occupying army and the shameful indignities to which women in a conquered city are always subject--the mass rape suffered by all, regardless of age or infirmity. A Woman in Berlin stands as "one of the essential books for understanding war and life" (A. S. Byatt, author of Possession).

Werner Otto Müller-Hill est, à n'en pas douter, un personnage très marquant. Né en 1885 et mort en 1977, benjamin d'une famille de Fribourg, il se définit comme un " bon Allemand " ; mais aussi antinazi qu'antibolchevique, il dénonce le funeste pacte germano-soviétique comme une erreur tragique. Exerçant à Strasbourg à la fin de la guerre, dans la position difficile d'un juriste légaliste tenu à la réserve et à la prudence, il tient, entre 1944 et 1945, un journal qu'il dissimulera soigneusement et que son fils Benno ne découvre qu'à sa mort. Il y consigne avec précision événements et réflexions, notamment au sujet de la crédulité du peuple allemand, berné par les discours officiels des nazis. Malgré ses origines bourgeoises - il décrit son enfance privilégiée dans Souvenances, en fin de volume - Werner s'affirme comme profondément démocrate. A plusieurs reprises, il dénonce l'extermination des juifs par les nazis et parle de la " solution finale " comme d'une " abomination antihéroïque, antimilitaire et absolument antiallemande ". Ses convictions personnelles et son éthique le poussent naturellement à considérer Hitler comme un malade mental. Toutefois, il déplore que son opinion ne soit pas partagée par tous ceux de sa classe. Enfin, ces notes sont aussi des écrits intimes, où il livre ses doutes et ses angoisses. Werner n'est pas seulement un juge intègre, il est également un père et un mari qui s'inquiète pour l'avenir des siens. Ce journal nous plonge dans ce que Werner nomme, justement, le " crépuscule des dieux ". La stupidité et l'horreur de toute guerre ressortent ici pleinement, et la publication de ce texte inédit, soixante-cinq ans après sa rédaction, est une pièce importante à ajouter au dossier du grand conflit mondial.

The Eastern Front witnessed the critical battles between the German and Russian armies which won and lost the Second World War. In Red Storm on the Reich, Christopher Duffy uncovers a military campaign of unprecedented scale and ferocity during which thirty million lives were lost - a deadly harvest in which the slaughter and suffering of German civilians reached unfathomable dimensions. By quoting extensively from the memoirs of Soviet and German commanders and the diaries of infantrymen, Red Storm on the Reich brings to life not only the Russian military assault on the lands of Germany, but also the human drama behind what can only be called epic seiges of the fortress cities of Danzig, Kolberg and Breslau. Christopher Duffy's gripping narrative of this unexplored offensive and the psyches behind it makes for essential reading for all those interested in the Second World War and European history.

On first publication, this uncommonly concise and readable account of Soviet Russia's clash with Nazi Germany utterly changed our understanding of World War II on Germany's Eastern Front, immediately earning its place among top-shelf histories of the world war. Revised and updated to reflect recent Russian and Western scholarship on the subject, much of it the authors' own work, this new edition maintains the 1995 original's distinction as a crucial volume in the history of World War II and of the Soviet Union and the most informed and compelling perspective on one of the greatest military confrontations of all time. In 1941, when Pearl Harbor shattered America's peacetime pretensions, the German blitzkrieg had already blasted the Red Army back to Moscow. Yet, less than four years later, the Soviet hammer-and-sickle flew above the ruins of Berlin, stark symbol of a miraculous comeback that destroyed the Germany Army and put an end to Hitler's imperial designs. In swift and stirring prose, When Titans Clash provides the clearest, most complete account of this epic struggle, especially from the Soviet perspective. Drawing on the massive and unprecedented release of Soviet archival documents in recent decades, David Glantz, one of the world's foremost authorities on the Soviet military, and noted military historian Jonathan House expand and elaborate our picture of the Soviet war effort—a picture sharply different from accounts that emphasize Hitler's failed leadership over Soviet strategy and might. Rafts of newly available official directives, orders, and reports reveal the true nature and extraordinary scale of Soviet military operations as they swept across the one thousand miles from Moscow to Berlin, featuring stubborn defenses and monumental offensives and counteroffensives and ultimately costing the two sides combined a staggering twenty million casualties. Placing the war within its wider context, the authors also make use of recent revelations to clarify further the political, economic, and social issues that influenced and reflected what happened on the battlefield. Their work gives us new insight into Stalin's political motivation and Adolf Hitler's role as warlord, as well as a better understanding of the human and economic costs of the war—for both the Soviet Union and Germany. While incorporating a wealth of new information, When Titans Clashed remains remarkably compact, a tribute to the authors' determination to make this critical chapter in world history as accessible as it is essential.
