    Naval Institute Press 2013; US$ 45.95

    June 1940. The Italians declared war on the British. Completely unprepared for war, the British had only 35,000 troops to defend Egypt.

Lieutenant Holwitt... more...

  • "Madagaskar für die Juden"by Magnus Brechtken

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 1998; US$ 70.00

    Die traditionelle Judenfeindschaft wandelte sich in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts zu einem rassistisch geprägten Antisemitismus. Seine Propagandisten fühlten sich zur "Lösung der Judenfrage" berufen. 1885 wurde die Idee geboren, Madagaskar zur Heimstätte aller Juden der Welt zu machen. So grotesk diese Vorstellung einer "territorialen Endlösung"... more...

    Pen and Sword 2007; US$ 5.99

    The victorious German Blitzkrieg assault on Holland, Belgium and Northern France placed Anglo-French relations under huge strain.
