Chronicle of the Kings of England: From the Earliest Period to the Reign of King Stephen

by William of Malmesbury

The history of the English, from their arrival in Britain to his own times, has been written by Bede, a man of singular learning and modesty, in a clear and captivating style. After him you will not, in my opinion, easily find any person who has attempted to compose in Latin the history of this people. Let others declare whether their researches in this respect have been, or are likely to be, more fortunate; my own labour, though diligent in the extreme, has, down to this period, been without its reward. There, are, indeed, some notices of antiquity, written in the vernacular tongue after the manner of a chronicle, and arranged according to the years of our Lord. By means of these alone, the times succeeding this man have been rescued from oblivion: for of Elward, a noble and illustrious...

Architecture of Survival: Holocaust Diaries (WW2 Memoirs Book 1)

by Israel Stein

A Jewish family survives the Holocaust hidden by a Polish family In 1939, when the Second World War broke out, the Stein family escaped Poland.

The Steins had managed to remain hidden in the Ghetto for five more weeks, before escaping to their new hideout—the home of a Polish family, backed by a German official, that gave them refuge.

The Expansion of Europe 1642-1789

by Wilbur Abbott

WHEN in the last months of 1648 was signed the great peace which brought to an end the Thirty Years' War and with it the mediaeval polity which it finally destroyed; as the army of diplomats whose work it was dispersed to their respective governments, the awe-inspiring mass of documents which formed the fruit of their long labors might have led men to believe that Europe would hasten to enjoy the peace which she so needed and which her people for the most part so greatly desired. But whatever hopes of quiet were entertained, were already far on the way to disappointment; for the Europe to which the diplomats returned was even then altered or altering before their eyes and already shaping itself for new conflict. Scarcely a state of any consequence prepared to recruit its resources by the a...

The Protocols: Part II. The War in Europe Begins

by Rob Carr

The second book in the The Protocols Trilogy chronicles the time beginning with the invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, and concludes on June 21, 1941, the day before the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Like all the books in the series, The War In Europe Begins tells the story through excerpts taken from news and feature articles, radio and film transcripts, speeches, memoirs, diaries and other historical documents recorded on the day, or near the day, the events to which they refer occurred.

Cape of Storms: U-Boat Operations Off Southern Africa 1939 - 1945

by Peter Kelly

This book covers the German Navy's operations off the African coast between 1939 and 1945. It is a little known fact that U-boat operations were significantly disruptive to Allied shipping, resulting in convoying and delayed handling in ports. U-boats operated in packs initially and as the war swung in the favour of the Allies, individually. The U-boat movements between Germany and Japan and back are also covered briefly. The book leans heavily on the research done by Turner, Gordon-Cumming and Betzlers' book War in the Southern Ocean but tries to link what happened at the time with modern sources....

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...
