´´The gratitude of every home in our island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world except in the abodes of the guilty goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unweakened by their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of world war by their prowess and their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” – Winston Churchill, August 21, 1940. At the end of August 2012, BBC ran a report about the commemoration of a young man who had been killed more than 70 years earlier. ´´A Battle of Britain pilot who was killed when his Spitfire crashed following a dogfight in the skies above Kent has been honored. Flying Officer Oswald St John ‘Ossie’ Pigg lost his life in the crash at Elvey Farm on 1 September 1940. The 22-year-old had been involved in an aerial fight with a Messerschmitt. A plaque was unveiled near the site by his niece Stephanie Haigh and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight carried out a flypast on Thursday.” Just 12 days before Pigg’s death, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had already immortalized the men of the Royal Air Force with one of the West’s most famous war-time quotes. But the sentiment and gratitude Churchill expressed back in 1940 is very much alive today. The sacrifice made by ´´The Few”, the British and Allied fighter pilots who won the Battle of Britain in 1940, remains close to the hearts of the British public, and the piece by the BBC is typical of the national sentiment manifested in air shows, museums, TV programs, and books. Even as the last of ´´The Few” pass on, it seems unlikely that the legend they helped to create will be forgotten anytime soon. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Fluxman.

´´A soldier´s first duty is to obey, otherwise you might as well do away with soldiering.´´ (Kesselring) Albert Kesselring holds a strange place in the history of World War II. A commander in the Luftwaffe, he is remembered as much for the skill with which he oversaw the German armies as for his mastery of the air fleets. Called ´´Uncle Albert´´ by many of his men and ´´Smiling Albert´´ by the Allies, he was widely respected by men on both sides of the war and loved by many of his troops, yet he was responsible for massacres in occupied Italy for which he was condemned to death during the post-war trials. Ultimately, his sentence was commuted to one of life imprisonment, making him one of the few top Nazi leaders to pen memoirs after the war, but it goes without saying that Kesselring´s time was marked by controversy. Kesselring had the skills of a politician and a diplomat, as well as those of a soldier, which carried his career through both World War I and World War II, and during the Second World War, he served in almost every theater of the fighting in Europe. He was undoubtedly a gifted commander, but one who served at a time when the German military was tainted with the evils of Nazism. Who was Albert Kesselring, and what made this seemingly contradictory man tick? Field Marshal Albert Kesselring: The Life and Legacy of Nazi Germany´s Most Popular Commander analyzes the life and career of the controversial military leader. You will learn about Kesselring like never before. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Fluxman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/097325/bk_acx0_097325_sample.mp3.

A classic work of World War II history that brings to vivid, dramatic life one of the bloodiest battles ever fought - and the beginning of the end for the Third Reich. On August 5, 1942, giant pillars of dust rose over the Russian steppe, marking the advance of the 6th Army, an elite German combat unit dispatched by Hitler to capture the industrial city of Stalingrad and press on to the oil fields of Azerbaijan. The Germans were supremely confident; in three years, they had not suffered a single defeat. The Luftwaffe had already bombed the city into ruins. German soldiers hoped to complete their mission and be home in time for Christmas. The siege of Stalingrad lasted five months, one week, and three days. Nearly two million men and women died, and the 6th Army was completely destroyed. Considered by many historians to be the turning point of World War II in Europe, the Soviet Army´s victory foreshadowed Hitler´s downfall and the rise of a communist superpower. Best-selling author William Craig spent five years researching this epic clash of military titans, traveling to three continents in order to review documents and interview hundreds of survivors. Enemy at the Gates is the enthralling result: the definitive account of one of the most important battles in world history. The book was the inspiration for the 2001 film of the same name, starring Joseph Fiennes and Jude Law. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Baker.

First-hand accounts featuring the RAF pilots who took part in the Battle of Britain - one of the chief turning points of World War II. ‘Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few’ - Winston Churchill. The ‘Few’ were the nearly 3,000 RAF pilots who fought against the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain, which raged in the skies over southern England and the English Channel in the summer of 1940. With a new prime minister, Winston Churchill, Britain fought alone in Europe - and under the threat of invasion from Hitler’s Germany. Douglas Bader, Flight Lt Richard Hillary, ‘Ginger’ Lacey, and Flight Lt. Brian Kingcombe describe the strains they had to face as pilots: ‘I didn’t have butterflies in my stomach - I had vultures’ and the ‘long, boring hours interspersed with moments of tremendous exhilaration’. Their determination, bravery, and skill are evident as, outnumbered, they fought doggedly in their superior Hurricanes and Spitfires. With news bulletins, reportage, personal accounts from the ground crews, and excerpts from Churchill’s famous speeches, this recording undeniably shows why, for the victorious RAF pilots, ‘This was their finest hour’. 1.

It was the summer of 1940, and World War II had been raging for nearly a year. Buoyed by his successes on the Continent, Hitler was now planning an invasion of England to seal Europe´s fate. Though the United States was still a neutral country, a few Americans decided they couldn´t remain on the sidelines. They joined Britain´s Royal Air Force to defend the country - with the future of civilization hanging in the balance. The Few tells the dramatic and unforgettable story of these Americans who defied their own country´s neutrality laws and risked their very citizenship to fight side-by-side with England´s finest pilots. Flying the lethal and elegant Spitfire, they became ´´knights of the air´´ who, with minimal training but plenty of guts, dueled the skilled and fearsome aces of Germany´s Luftwaffe. By October 1940, they had helped England win the greatest air battle in the history of aviation. Some five years later, at war´s end, just one of them would be alive. Winston Churchill once said famously of all those who fought in the Battle of Britain, ´´Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.´´ These daring Americans were the few among the ´´few.´´ 1.

Die letzte Front
€ 28.00 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Die Kampfhandlungen des zweiten Weltkriegs in Norddeutschland endeten noch nicht als die Briten am 19. April 1945 die Elbe östlich von Hamburg erreichten. Der Krieg war noch nicht vorbei, er ging weiter und forderte noch viele Menschenleben. Kaum ein Buch, kaum eine Chronik, berichtet mehr als einige Seiten von diesem erbitterten Ringen zweier Armeekorps auf jeder Seite. Dieses Buch schildert ausführlich den Vorstoß der Briten an die Elbe, die Kämpfe um die letzten deutschen Brückenköpfe südlich der Strombarriere, in Artlenburg, Hohnstorf/Elbe, Bleckede, Neu Darchau und Dömitz. Es beschreibt den zehntägigen Aufmarsch des britischen 8. Corps und die Bemühungen der deutschen Führung in dieser Zeit an der Elbe eine ´´letzte Front´´ zu errichten. Blutjunge Rekruten des Heeres, der Waffen-SS, Polizisten, U-Boot Männer und Flugzeugbesatzungen ohne Flugzeuge müssen die Schützenlöcher und Gräben am Nordufer des Flusses besetzen. Das Verhandlungsangebot der Briten und die Gespräche am Elbstrand lassen auf ein gutes Ende hoffen. Aber am frühen Morgen des 29. Aprils 1945 bieten die Alliierten noch einmal ihre gesamte Kriegsmaschine auf. Die Briten setzen bei Lauenburg und die Amerikaner einen Tag später bei Bleckede über die Elbe. Doch die Armeegruppe ´´Blumentritt´´ hat die 10 Tage genutzt um zwei Verteidigungslinien mit einer Gegenstoßreserve aufzubauen. Bevor der Krieg zu Ende ist und die Briten die Ostsee erreichen, soll solange die deutschen Kräfte reichen das ´´große Tor´´ zwischen Lübeck und Lauenburg für Zehntausende von Flüchtlingen und zurückweichenden Truppen aus dem Osten offen gehalten werden. Die letzten Kämpfe im nördlichen Niedersachsen, südlichen Schleswig-Holstein und westlichen Mecklenburg werden präzise und im Detail beschrieben. Ein Höhepunkt des Buches ist die erste geschlossene Darstellung der ´´Luftschlacht über der Elbe´´, einem der letzten Schwerpunkteinsätze der deutschen Luftwaffe. In einem finalen Aufbäumen versuchen die deutschen Flieger, die Fähren und Pontonbrücken der Briten über die Elbe zu zerstören. In dieser hoffnungslosen Lage kämpfte die Mehrheit der deutschen Soldaten befehlsgemäß weiter. Das ´´Warum?´´ bedarf einer Antwort, die zu geben hier versucht wird. Welche Motivation hatten die Verantwortlichen hier noch eine Verteidigungslinie zu errichten und was dachten die Soldaten in den Stellungen. Für die Darstellung der alliierten Seite sind eine Anzahl Kriegstagebücher ausgewertet worden, aber auch die Führungsproblematik von Koalitionen, hier zwischen Eisenhower und Montgomery, werden im Rahmen des Themas behandelt. Der von Eisenhower so enttäuschte britische Field Marshal Montgomery erfuhr durch die Kapitulation der Heeresgruppe Nordwest eine ungeahnte Genugtuung. Nach Auswertung von bisher unbeachteten und unbekannten Quellen und den Befragungen der letzten Zeitzeugen ist es den Autoren gelungen ein zusammenhängendes Bild der deutschen Elbe-Verteidigung zwischen Hamburg und Dömitz und des britischen/amerikanischen Vorstoßes über die Elbe bis zur Ostsee zu zeichnen. Im April 1945 erreichte der II. Weltkrieg die Elbe bei Lauenburg. Erstmalig schildert ein Buch ausführlich diese letzten Kriegstage zwischen Geesthacht und Dömitz.
