    The Red Army's casualties during the Second World War and the casualties sustained by the German army they fought are a key element in any assessment of the conflict on the Eastern Front.

  • Rebuilding Post-War Britainby Emily Gilbert

    Pen and Sword 2017; US$ 13.67

    'Germany wasn't really a place for settling in, because after the war it was pretty devastated, and there wasn't really a chance to start again, so I thought Id come to England. It was a case of people between 18 and 50 and you had to be fit because it was mainly physical work. For men, it was mines and agricultural work and brick factories and women,... more...

  • Other Cinemasby Sue Clayton; Laura Mulvey

    I.B.Tauris 2017; US$ 40.00
