Antony Beevor's Stalingrad is a harrowing look at one of history's darkest moments. In October 1942, a panzer officer wrote 'Stalingrad is no longer a town... Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones cannot bear it for long; only men endure'. The battle for Stalingrad became the focus of Hitler and Stalin's determination to win the gruesome, vicious war on the eastern front. The citizens of Stalingrad endured unimaginable hardship; the battle, with fierce hand-to-hand fighting in each room of each building, was brutally destructive to both armies. But the eventual victory of the Red Army, and the failure of Hitler's Operation Barbarossa, was the first defeat of Hitler's territorial ambitions in Europe, and the start of his decline. An extraordinary story of tactical genius, civilian bravery, obsession, carnage and the nature of war itself, Stalingrad will act as a testament to the vital role of the soviet war effort. 'A superb re-telling. Beevor combines a soldier's understanding of war's realities with the narrative techniques of a novelist . . . This is a book that lets the reader look into the face of battle' Orlando Figes, Sunday Telegraph 'A brilliantly researched tour de force of military history' Sarah Bradford, The Times Antony Beevor is the renowned author of Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature, and Berlin, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees' Award. His books have sold nearly four million copies.

"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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In his latest work, Antony Beevor—bestselling author of Stalingrad and The Fall of Berlin 1945 and one of our most respected historians of World War II—brings us the true, little-known story of a family torn apart by revolution and war. Olga Chekhova, a stunning Russian beauty, was the niece of playwright Anton Chekhov and a famous Nazi-era film actress who was closely associated with Hitler. After fleeing Bolshevik Moscow for Berlin in 1920, she was recruited by her composer brother Lev to become a Soviet spy—a career she spent her entire postwar life denying. The riveting story of how Olga and her family survived the Russian Revolution, the rise of Hitler, the Stalinist Terror, and the Second World War becomes, in Beevor’s hands, a breathtaking tale of survival in a merciless age.

Die aufsehenerregende Darstellung der russischen Sicht auf die Schlacht von Stalingrad Bis heute wird »Stalingrad«, der Wendepunkt des Zweiten Weltkriegs, vorwiegend aus deutscher Sicht geschildert, auch weil bislang authentische russische Stimmen fehlen. Dies hat sich durch den spektakulären Fund des Russlandhistorikers Jochen Hellbeck geändert: Hunderte Seiten Gesprächsprotokolle, die bis vor kurzem in russischen Archiven unter Verschluss waren. Sie ermöglichen eine ganz neue Sicht auf die Schlacht: einfache Soldaten und Generäle, Kampffliegerinnen und Sanitäterinnen berichteten schon während der Kämpfe einer Historikerkommission von ihren Erlebnissen – offen, ungeschminkt, hautnah. Eine umfassende Neubewertung des verzweifelten russischen Kampfes ums Überleben der Heimat. »Tatsächlich existiert bis heute vielfach ein stereotypes Bild des Rotarmisten: roh, triebhaft, ein so gefährliches wie anonymes Massenwesen. Hellbeck präsentiert in seinem Buch erstmals Dokumente, die dem eine authentische russische Perspektive der Stalingrader Schlacht entgegensetzen.« Martin Hubert, Deutschlandradio »Eine dichte Analyse und eine reiche Quellenpräsentation« Christian Staas, Die Zeit »Es sind diese Unmittelbarkeit und das breite militärische und soziale Spektrum der Protokolle, die dem Laien tiefe Einblicke in das blutige Ringen um Stalingrad ermöglichen.« Linus Schöpfer, Tages-Anzeiger »Nun, fast 70 Jahre später, lässt sich mit nicht gekannter Tiefenschärfe nachvollziehen, wie die Sieger von Stalingrad die Schicksalsschlacht an der Wolga erlebten.« Michael Sontheimer, Der Spiegel

"A rich and intriguing story whcih the authors disentangle with great skill."--Sunday Telegraph Beevor's Ardennes 1944: The Battle of the Bulge is now available from Viking Books In this brilliant synthesis of social, political, and cultural history, Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper present a vivid and compelling portrayal of the City of Lights after its liberation. Paris became the diplomatic battleground in the opening stages of the Cold War. Against this volatile political backdrop, every aspect of life is portrayed: scores were settled in a rough and uneven justice, black marketers grew rich on the misery of the population, and a growing number of intellectual luminaries and artists including Hemingway, Beckett, Camus, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Cocteau, and Picassocontributed new ideas and a renewed vitality to this extraordinary moment in time.

Eine beeindruckende Sammlung persönlicher Zeitdokumente Die Museumsstiftung Post und Telekommunikation in Berlin ist in Besitz von 16.000 Briefen, die deutsche Soldaten im Laufe des Zweiten Weltkrieges an ihre Verwandten daheim geschrieben haben. Die französische Germanistin und Historikerin Marie Moutier hat eine Auswahl aus dieser großen Sammlung getroffen. Chronologisch und nach Kriegsschauplätzen (Polen, Frankreich, Norwegen, Afrika, Russland, Normandie) geordnet, liefert diese Feldpost gleichsam eine Geschichte des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Briefen. Sie zeigt einfache Soldaten und Gefreite, die gegenüber ihren verwandten Briefpartnern oft enormes Mitgefühl und Einfühlungsvermögen beweisen und die zugleich von der Rassenideologie des Nationalsozialismus durchdrungen sind. Jedem Brief ist jeweils ein kurzer Lebensaufriss des Absenders vorangestellt. „Die Veröffentlichung dieser Briefe ist ein bedeutender Beitrag zum Verständnis des Zweiten Weltkrieges und der Mentalität der Soldaten.“ TIMOTHY SNYDER

Das Jahr, in dem die Mauer gebaut wurde 1961, der Höhepunkt der sogenannten Berlin-Krise, die Welt befindet sich am Rande eines Atomkriegs. Frederick Kempe erzählt auf der Basis neu zugänglicher Dokumente die atemberaubende Geschichte dieses Jahres, in dem Berlin der »gefährlichste Ort der Welt« war, wie Chruschtschow meinte. Ein Blick hinter die Kulissen der treibenden Mächte, eine faszinierende Darstellung der wichtigsten Protagonisten jener Zeit. Im Juni 1961 erneuerte der sowjetische Regierungschef Nikita Chruschtschow sein Berlin-Ultimatum und forderte unter anderem den Abzug der westalliierten Truppen aus der Stadt. Die USA unter ihrem Präsidenten Kennedy hielten diesen Forderungen eigene Bedingungen entgegen. Mit Walter Ulbricht auf der einen und Konrad Adenauer auf der anderen Seite standen sich auch die deutschen Staatschefs feindselig gegenüber und trugen zur Verschärfung der politischen Lage bei. In den folgenden Wochen und Monaten spitzte sich die Situation extrem zu, die Massenflucht aus der DDR nahm immer dramatischere Ausmaße an. Am 13. August schließlich wurde die Mauer durch Berlin gebaut, Ende Oktober richteten sowjetische und amerikanische Soldaten am Checkpoint Charlie ihre Panzer aufeinander. In diesem Moment war Berlin zur weltpolitischen Arena geworden, aus dem Kalten Krieg drohte ein heißer zu werden.
