Life in the Third Reich: Daily LIfe in Nazi Ger...

Germany was a deeply divided nation when Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power in 1933. As the shadow of the swastika lengthened, its citizens quickly came to realize that the Nazis' brutal programme was not optional. Everyone was expected to play their part in "national revival", especially those chosen as sacrificial victims.Much has been written about daily life during World War II from the perspective of the Allied nations, but little about life in Germany during the Third Reich. With the benefit of hindsight, questions have been raised as to why a civilized, cultured nation stood by and let the Nazi Party impose their rule in such inhumane fashion, and why so few individuals made any attempt to rebel.Life in the Third Reich draws on the recollections of those who lived through the rise and fall of one of the most vicious and sadistic regimes the world has ever seen. These are the stories of ordinary people in extraordinary times, living in the grip of a regime that did not care if it destroyed the whole country in pursuit of its perverted goals. 1.

Vietnam: An Epic History of a Divisive War 1945...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the best-selling author of All Hell Let Loose comes a masterful chronicle of one of the most devastating international conflicts of the 20th century and how its people were affected. Vietnam became the Western world’s most divisive modern conflict, precipitating a battlefield humiliation for France in 1954, then a vastly greater one for the United States in 1975. Max Hastings has spent the past three years interviewing scores of participants on both sides, as well as researching a multitude of American and Vietnamese documents and memoirs, to create an epic narrative of an epic struggle. He portrays the set pieces of Dienbienphu, the Tet offensive, the air blitz of North Vietnam and less familiar battles such as the bloodbath at Daido, where a US Marine battalion was almost wiped out, together with extraordinary recollections of Ho Chi Minh’s warriors. Here are the vivid realities of strife amid jungle and paddies that killed two million people.Many writers treat the war as a US tragedy, yet Hastings sees it as overwhelmingly that of the Vietnamese people, of whom 40 died for every American. US blunders and atrocities were matched by those committed by their enemies. While all the world has seen the image of a screaming, naked girl seared by napalm, it forgets countless eviscerations, beheadings and murders carried out by the communists. The people of both former Vietnams paid a bitter price for the Northerners’ victory in privation and oppression. Here is testimony from Vietcong guerrillas, Southern paratroopers, Saigon bargirls and Hanoi students alongside that of infantrymen from South Dakota, marines from North Carolina and Huey pilots from Arkansas.No past volume has blended a political and military narrative of the entire conflict with heart-stopping personal experiences, in the fashion that Max Hastings’ listeners know so well.

Becoming Unfamous , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 251min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Becoming Unfamous is the story of faith to fame and success to significance. Discover how R&B singer, songwriter, and superstar Montell Jordan made the journey from performer to pastor in his self-penned, transparent autobiography that shares his journey from marriage and music into ministry. Montell's story begins by documenting the intimate details on the night in 2010 when he determined to exit the music business. In a letter typed into his smartphone while seated in an Atlanta young adult ministry church service, he shares that God spoke to both he and his wife Kristin (while in different places in the room), confirming that their exodus from the entertainment industry would be immediate. In true Hollywood fashion, the story then rewinds to where his childhood began some 40-something years earlier in the city of angels. Unfamous begins with Jordan's recollections of his childhood amidst the backdrop of teen pregnancy, adoption, and the struggles of inner-city life in south central Los Angeles, CA, where the life expectancy for young black males at that time was 18. Faced with the heightened tensions of gang violence, opportunities to use and distribute drugs, and evading the questionable practices of the LAPD, Montell found refuge in the local church. Music would become the outlet and familiar refuge for him. Gospel and R&B music, pop culture, and the introduction of MTV, and the gangsta rap era would provide the DNA for the young church kid who would one day become a Grammy nominated rap singer. It was during Jordan's college years when he would experience fraternity life and begin experimenting with artistry as his affinity for emerging hip hop and R&B styles drew his interest. Unbeknownst to him, life and relationships outside of the church for the first time would be the early beginnings of his ministry training ground. Montell would meet the love of his life, Kristin Hudson during this season. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Montell Jordan.
