    The Holocaust is the defining event of the twentieth century – and perhaps all of modern history.

Now, in How Could This Happen , historian Dan McMillan distills the existing Holocaust research into a cogent explanation of the genocide?s... more...

  • Der Holocaustby Wolfgang Benz

    C.H. Beck 2014; US$ 9.25

    Wolfgang Benz, einer der renommiertesten deutschen Holocaust-Forscher, zeichnet in diesem Buch die Geschichte des Völkermordes an den Juden von der Ausgrenzung und Entrechtung bis zum industrialisierten Massenmord in den Vernichtungslagern nach. Sein Augenmerk gilt dabei nicht nur den Tätern, sondern vor allem auch den Opfern selbst. Neben die Geschichte... more...

  • The Hostile Skyby James Vernon

    Naval Institute Press 2014; US$ 21.95

    In the summer of 1942 Jim Vernon, a nineteen-year-old college student in Butte, Montana, joined the U.S. Navy's aviation cadet training program and by the spring of 1945 was flying F6F Hellcats from the USS Ticonderoga off of the coast of Japan. This memoir of his years at war provides a carrier pilot's view of the conflict in the Pacific during the... more...

  • The Battle of Leyte Gulfby Thomas J. Cutler

  • Concentrationary Cinemaby Griselda Pollock; Max Silverman

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 39.95

    Since its completion in 1955, Alain Resnais?s Night and Fog ( Nuit et Brouillard ) has been considered one of the most important films to confront the catastrophe and atrocities of the Nazi era. But was it a film about the Holocaust that failed to recognize the racist genocide? Or was the film not about the Holocaust as we know it today but a... more...

  • The Gestapoby Carsten Dams; Michael Stolle

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 18.99

    The Gestapo was the most feared instrument of political terror in the Third Reich, brutally hunting down and destroying anyone it regarded as an enemy of the Nazi regime: socialists, Communists, Jews, homosexuals, and anyone else deemed to be an 'anti-social element'. Its prisons soon became infamous - many of those who disappeared into them... more...

  • An den Grenzen des Geistesby Birte Hewera; Miriam Mettler

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 32.39

    ?Der modische Faktor, der aller Aktualität innewohnt, entschleiert sich bei genauer Betrachtung als irrational?, hält Jean Améry 1971 fest. Erscheine ein bestimmter Autor zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt als unmodern oder inaktuell, so sage dies ?über die Gültigkeit seiner Gedanken ebensowenig aus wie das Urteil, die Maximode sei schon passé, über deren... more...

  • Pigboat 39by Bobette Gugliotta

    The University Press of Kentucky 2014; US$ 32.00

    " Constructed in 1923, the American submarine S39 was practically an antique when the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor. With defective torpedoes, a semi-trained crew, and a primitive ventilation system (hence the nickname), she nevertheless sank two enemy vessels and eluded pursuit to fight again in the Solomons. This is the little-known story of how... more...
