1 Armistice - Harry Turtledove
Auteur : Harry Turtledove
Genre : Fiction & Literature
In the final book of the blistering trilogy The Hot War, old hatreds and new chances for revenge are unleashed on an already devastated world—as the Cold War becomes a roaring inferno.

In 1952 American cities lie in ruins. President Harry Truman, in office since 1945, presides over a makeshift government in Philadelphia, suffering his own personal loss and fearing for the future of democracy. In the wake of Hitler’s reign, Germany and America have become allies, and Stalin’s vise hold on power in the USSR persists. Unwilling to trust the Soviet tyrant, Truman launches a long-planned nuclear strike on the city of Omsk—killing Stalin and plunging the Red Army into leaderless, destructive anarchy. Meanwhile, the Baltic states careen toward rebellion, and Poland is seized by rebels bred on war. In a world awash with victims turned victors, refugees, and killers, has

3 Maisie Dobbs - Jacqueline Winspear
Auteur : Jacqueline Winspear
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
Lady Rowan Compton first met Maisie when, at thirteen, she went into service as a maid at her ladyship’s Belgravia mansion. A suffragette, Lady Rowan took the remarkably smart youngster under her wing and became her patron. She encouraged Maisie to study at Cambridge, and was aided in this by Maurice Blanche, a friend often retained as an investigator by the elite of Europe when discretion and results were required. It was he who first recognized Maisie’s intuitive gifts.

The outbreak of war changed everything. Maisie left for France to train as a nurse, then served at the front, where she fell in love with a handsome young doctor.

After the Armistice, in the spring of 1929, Maisie hangs out her shingle: M. Dobbs, Trade and Personal Investigations. Her very first case involves suspected infidelity but turns up something else, a tombstone with only a first

Testament
5 Testament of Youth - Vera Brittain
Auteur : Vera Brittain
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
This classic memoir of the First World War is now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington. Includes an afterword by Kate Mosse OBE.

In 1914 Vera Brittain was 20, and as war was declared she was preparing to study at Oxford. Four years later her life - and the life of her whole generation - had changed in a way that would have been unimaginable in the tranquil pre-war era.

TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, one of the most famous autobiographies of the First World War, is Brittain's account of how she survived those agonising years; how she lost the man she loved; how she nursed the wounded and how she emerged into an altered world. A passionate record of a lost generation, it made Vera Brittain one of the best-loved writers of her time, and has lost none of its power to shock, move and enthral readers since its first publication in 1933.

7 The Coldest War - James Brady
Auteur : James Brady
Genre : Military
America's "forgotten war" lasted just thirty-seven months, yet 54,246 Americans died in that time -- nearly as many as died in ten years in Vietnam. On the fiftieth anniversary of this devastating conflict, James Brady tells the story of his life as a young marine lieutenant in Korea.

In 1947, seeking to avoid the draft, nineteen-year-old Jim Brady volunteered for a Marine Corps program that made him a lieutenant in the reserves on the day he graduated college. He didn't plan to find himself in command of a rifle platoon three years later facing a real enemy, but that is exactly what happened after the Chinese turned a so-called police action into a war.

The Coldest War vividly describes Brady's rapid education in the realities of war and the pressures of command. Opportunities for bold offensives sink in the miasma of trench warfare; death comes in fits a

11 Eleventh Month, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Hour - Joseph E. Persico
Auteur : Joseph E. Persico
Genre : Military
November 11, 1918. The final hours pulsate with tension as every man in the trenches hopes to escape the melancholy distinction of being the last to die in World War I. The Allied generals knew the fighting would end precisely at 11:00 A.M, yet in the final hours they flung men against an already beaten Germany. The result? Eleven thousand casualties suffered–more than during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. Why? Allied commanders wanted to punish the enemy to the very last moment and career officers saw a fast-fading chance for glory and promotion.

Joseph E. Persico puts the reader in the trenches with the forgotten and the famous–among the latter, Corporal Adolf Hitler, Captain Harry Truman, and Colonels Douglas MacArthur and George Patton. Mainly, he follows ordinary soldiers’ lives, illuminating their fate as the end approaches. Persico sets the last day of t

Jutland
12 Jutland, 1916 - Nigel Steel & Peter Hart
Auteur : Nigel Steel & Peter Hart
Genre : Military
Dramatic, illustrated account of the biggest naval battle of the First World War.

On 31 May, 1916, the great battle fleets of Britain and Germany met off Jutland in the North Sea. It was a climactic encounter, the culmination of a fantastically expensive naval race between the two countries, and expectations on both sides were high. For the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet, there was the chance to win another Trafalgar. For the German High Seas Fleet, there was the opportunity to break the British blockade and so change the course of the war. But Jutland was a confused and controversial encounter. Tactically, it was a draw; strategically, it was a British victory.

Naval historians have pored over the minutiae of Jutland ever since. Yet they have largely ignored what the battle was actually like for its thousands of participants. Full of drama and pathos, of chaos and

13 The Somme - Peter Hart & Nigel Steel
Auteur : Peter Hart & Nigel Steel
Genre : Military
A major new history of the most infamous battle of the First World War, as described by the men who fought it.

On 1 July 1916, Douglas Haig's army launched the 'Big Push' that was supposed finally to bring an end to the stalemate on the Western Front. What happened next was a human catastrophe: scrambling over the top into the face of the German machine guns and artillery fire, almost 20,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers were killed that day alone, and twice as many wounded - the greatest loss in a single day ever sustained by the British Army. The battle did not stop there, however. It dragged on for another 4 months, leaving the battlefield strewn with literally hundreds of thousands of bodies.

The Somme has remained a byword for the futility of war ever since. In this major new history, Peter Hart describes how the battle looked from the point

General
17 The General - Jonathan Fenby
Auteur : Jonathan Fenby
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
No leader of modern times was more uniquely patriotic than Charles de Gaulle. As founder and first president of the Fifth Republic, General de Gaulle saw himself as “carrying France on [his] shoulders.” 
In his twenties, he fought for France in the trenches and at the epic battle of Verdun. In the 1930s, he waged a lonely battle to enable France to better resist Hitler’s Germany. Thereafter, he twice rescued the nation from defeat and decline by extraordinary displays of leadership, political acumen, daring, and bluff, heading off civil war and leaving a heritage adopted by his successors of right and left.

 Le Général, as he became known from 1940 on, appeared as if he was carved from a single monumental block, but was in fact extremely complex, a man with deep personal feelings and recurrent mood swings, devoted to his family and often seeking reassura

20 The Economic Consequences of the Peace - John Maynard Keynes & Paul A. Volcker
Auteur : John Maynard Keynes & Paul A. Volcker
Genre : Economics
A new edition of the seminal text by the father of modern economics.

First published in 1919, John Maynard Keynes’s The Economic Consequences of the Peace created immediate controversy. Keynes was a firsthand witness to the negotiations of the Paris Peace Conference, as an official representative of the British Treasury, and he simultaneously sat as deputy for the chancellor of the Exchequer on the Supreme Economic Council. In these roles, he was able to perceive with great clarity the tenor and perspective that would come to shape Europe after the First World War. What he saw disturbed him greatly, and eventually he resigned from both these roles, convinced that there was no longer any way to avoid an unjust peace treaty.

After his resignation, Keynes began work on The Economic Consequences of the Peace, which argues that the peace made at th

22 Marines in the Korean War Commemorative Series: Outpost War - U.S. Marines from the Nevada Battles to the Armistice - Progressive Management
Auteur : Progressive Management
Genre : Military
When 1953 began, the Jamestown Line had become, in the words of Marine Corporal Robert Hall who fought there, "a messy, rambling series of ditches five to seven feet deep" that linked a succession of bunkers constructed of sandbags and timber and used for shelter or fighting. The trenches wandered erratically to prevent Chinese attackers who penetrated the perimeter from delivering deadly enfilade fire along lengthy, straight segments. As for the bunkers themselves, since "piles of trash, ration cans, scrap paper, and protruding stove pipes" revealed their location, the enemy "must have known where every bunker was."

A bunker, therefore, could easily become a death trap. As a result, the Marines had learned to dig and man fighting holes outside the bunkers. Hall described such a hole as "simply a niche in the forward wall of the trench, usually covered with planks and a few sa

Before long, though, the puzzle of what really happened to the Duffy diamonds after the Armistice Ball has been swept aside by a sudden, unexpected death in a lonely seaside cottage in Galloway. Society and the law seem ready to call it an accident but Dandy, along with Cara Duffy's fiancé Alec, is sure that there is more going on than meets the eye.

What is being hidden by members of the Duffy family: the watchful Lena, the cold and distant Clemence and old Gregory Duffy with his air

November 1918. The Great War has left Europe in ruins, but with the end of hostilities, a radical new start seems not only possible, but essential, even unavoidable.

Sculptor Käthe Kollwitz, whose son died in the war, is translating sorrow and loss into art.

Auteur : Wilfred Owen & Jon Stallworthy
Genre : Poetry
'Orpheus, the pagan saint of poets, went through hell and came back singing. In twentieth-century mythology, the singer wears a steel helmet and makes his descent "down some profound dull tunnel" in the stinking mud of the Western Front. For most readers of English poetry, the face under that helmet is that of Wilfred Owen.' Professor Jon Stallworthy, from his Introduction.

When Wilfred Owen was killed in the days before the Armistice in 1918, he left behind a shattering, truthful and indelible record of a soldier's experience of the First World War. His greatest war poetry has been collected, edited and introduced here by Professor Jon Stallworthy. This special edition is published to commemorate the end of the hellish war that Owen, though the hard-won truth and terrible beauty of his poetry, has taught us never to forget.

This attack was to be supported by a diversionary British offensive at Arras in the north, which would draw off both German attention and their reserves.

In the event, the French offensive in Champagne failed to deliver the promised breakthrough, leaving the French Arm

37 Armistice with Italy - United States Government
Auteur : United States Government
Genre : Military
Even before the British and Americans were able to make major strategic decisions in 1943, a massive German surrender at Stalingrad in February marked the beginning of the end for Hitler’s armies in Russia.  From that point forward, the Red Army started to steadily push the Nazis backward toward Germany, but it would still take the Red Army almost an entire two years to push the Germans all the way out of Russia.
In July 1943, just a few months after the surrender at Stalingrad, the Allies conducted what at the time was the largest amphibious invasion in history, coordinating the landing of two whole armies on Sicily over a front more than 100 miles long.  Within weeks of the beginning of the Allied campaign in Italy, Italy’s government wasted no time negotiating peace with the Allies and quickly quit the war.

Genre : Europe
The five armistices arranged in the fall of 1918 determined the course of diplomatic events for many years. The armistice with Germany, the most important of the five, was really a peace treaty in miniature. Bullitt Lowry, basing his account on a close study of newly available archives in Great Britain, France, and the United States, offers a detailed examination of the process by which what might have been only simple orders to cease fire instead became extensive diplomatic and military instructions to armies and governments. He also assesses the work of the leading figures in the profess, as well as supporting casts of generals, admirals, and diplomatic advisors.

This excellent report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. Antarctica is a 5.4 million square mile land mass, larger than the United States and Mexico combined. Covered by an ice sheet 7,000 feet thick, it constitutes 90 percent of the world's ice and 70 percent of the world's fresh water. The United States, in conjunction with 11 other nations, drafted and signed the Antarctic Treaty of 1961 to prevent the territory from becoming an object of international discord. Although Antarctica has been free of conflict for the last sixty years, the operational environment has changed. Global population growth, natural resource scarcity, and climate change are altering Antarctica's operational environment, requiring the Department of Defense (DoD), along with inter-agency and multinational partners, to develop a comprehensive Antarctic strategy t

44 Armistice Plot - Dora Benley
Auteur : Dora Benley
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
The novel Armistice Plot begins at an archaeological site at Carchemish in 1914 as Edward Ware’s father and Leonard Woolley close down their dig in the face of war. As Edward peers into the tent at midnight he sees a dark-robed intruder brushing past the figurine of an ancient Hittite king that he and T.E.Lawrence excavated at Carchemish this summer in 1914.

Is this a spy sent by the Germans to steal the maps Lawrence is sketching for the British military? Edward first encounters the vamp who will haunt the rest of his life prowling among the finds, looking for the military maps that his fellow archaeologist T. E.Lawrence is drawing for the British government.

All during the ensuing Great War Edward must fight to keep the maps secret. Finally during the Battle of Damascus Edward and Lawrence defeat the Turks and make them sue for peace. They will sign the Armistic

Auteur : Progressive Management
Genre : Military
This excellent report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. It is designed to provide Army personnel with a concise, authoritative, yet also readable history of the institution in which they serve with an overview of U.S. Army in the years leading up to and including the First World War. A century ago, the great powers of Europe became engulfed in what was then called the Great War. It signaled a new age in armed conflict in which mass armies supported by industrial mass production brought an unprecedented level of killing power to the battlefield. By the time the United States entered the war in 1917, the combatants were waging war on a scale never before seen in history. The experience defined a generation and cast a long shadow across the twentieth century. In addition to a tremendous loss of life, the war shattered Europe, bringing re

49 La Défaite de 1940 et l'armistice : une autre approche de la vérité - Pierre Chandelier
Auteur : Pierre Chandelier
Genre : Europe
Plus d’un demi-siècle s’est écoulé depuis la déclaration de guerre à l’Allemagne en septembre 1939, la défaite et l’armistice de juin 1940 et ces événements suscitent toujours controverses et polémiques. Avec un grand souci d’objectivité, l’auteur les étudie à partir de documents diplomatiques, de travaux d’historiens, de témoignages d’hommes politiques, de militaires et de diplomates des deux camps, de l’analyse des plus éminents professeurs de Droit et de juristes réputés, et aussi de l’opinion d’intellectuels à l’autorité incontestée. Sont également abordés des thèmes tels que le drame de Mers-el-Kebir, l’accord franco-anglais sur l’armistice et la paix séparée, le problème de la légalité et de la légitimité du Gouvernement de Vichy, le procès de Riom, celui du Maréchal Pétain, le non-lieu du général Weygand, etc.

50 La Vérité sur l'Armistice - Général Mordacq
Auteur : Général Mordacq
Genre : Military
Qui mieux que le général Mordacq pouvait nous renseigner sur l’armistice du 11 novembre 1918. En effet, après de brillantes opérations militaires, il est nommé en 1917 chef de cabinet de Georges Clemenceau.
C’est à ce titre qu’il fut au premier rang des négociations qui aboutirent à l’armistice entre la France et ses alliés d’une part, et les Allemands d’autre part.
Ce récit, écrit en 1929, très précis, très net, basé sur des faits et des témoignages de témoins oculaires nous apporte un éclairage nouveau, abolit des légendes tenaces et n’a qu’un seul but : nous révéler la vérité sur l’armistice de 1918.
