"Секреты Балтийского подплава" - произведение необычного жанра. Автор, опираясь на устные предания ветеранов Балтики и на сведения, которые просочились в подцензурной советской литературе, приподнимает завесу "совершенной секретности" над некоторыми событиями Великой Отечественной войны на Балтийском море.

Обложки нет Help with Negative Self–talk Volume I

 Автор: Andreas Steve



Most eating disorders, Alcohol and other substance abuse and addictions, Anxiety and panic disorder, Anger and violence, Depression, Procrastination, Self-confidence & self-esteem issues

...the list goes on and on.


Often the people who suffer from these problems don’t realize that they are caused by inner critics, internalized parents, and other troublesome inner voices because they are so focused on the horrible feelings that result from them. Sometimes this negative self-talk is playing constantly in the background, like a song stuck on repeat!


It is very difficult to directly change an unpleasant emotion, but often quite easy to change an inner voice. When the voice changes, the feelings usually change with it, allowing for a more resourceful response to life's challenges.


By learning how you talk to yourself, you can easily learn new and more helpful ways to do so.

Обложка книги Homo Gamer. Психология компьютерных игр Homo Gamer. Психология компьютерных игр

 Автор: Бурлаков Игорь


Эта книга представляет взгляд психолога на современное массовое увлечение — компьютерные игры. Что ищут люди в виртуальных битвах — только ли способ разрядить агрессию? Как игровой мир влияет на психику и стиль мышления игрока, на его отношение к реальному миру? На что рассчитывают родители, покупая ребенку компьютер, и что происходит на самом деле? Человек-игрок — что это? Новый вид зависимости? Новый тип мышления? Новое сообщество?

Над этими и другими вопросами интересно будет подумать и психологам, и педагогам, и самим игрокам, и родителям, которые хотят лучше понимать своих детей.

Обложка книги Heinrich Himmler Heinrich Himmler

 Автор: Manvell Roger


Authors Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel, notable biographers of the World War II German leaders Joseph Goebbels and Herman Goring, delve into the life of one of the most sinister, clever, and successful of all the Nazi leaders: Heinrich Himmler. As the head of the feared SS, Himler supervised the extermination of millions. Here is the story of how a seemingly ordinary boy grew into an obsessive and superstitious man who ventured into herbalism, astrology, and homeopathic medicine before finally turning to the “science” of racial purity and the belief in the superiority of the Aryan people.

“Manvell and Fraenkel have produced… biographies of Goebbels, Goering, Himmler, and the men who tried to kill Hitler in 1944…. To the best of my knowledge there are no better biographies in existence.”

 Автор: Diaconus Paulus


История народов лангобардов охватывает почти два столетия, с момента передвижения лангобардов из Скандинавии в Италию в 568 г. до 744 г. При написании этого труда использовались исторические сочинения, Беневентские и Сполетские анналы, «Liber pontificalis», исторические народные сказания, родовые предания, героические песни.

Общий характер «Истории лангобардов» историко-беллетристический. Повествование перебивается разнородными отступлениями: описаниями Италии и ее памятников, рассказами о чудесах и сказками и т. д. Хронология в нем не отличается точностью и порой даже спутана. Язык сочинения ясный и чистый, близкий к классическому. «История лангобардов» пользовалась большой популярностью в средние века.

Обложка книги Hitlerland Hitlerland

 Автор: Nagorski Andrew


Hitler’s rise to power, Germany’s march to the abyss, as seen through the eyes of Americans—diplomats, military, expats, visiting authors, Olympic athletes—who watched horrified and up close. By tapping a rich vein of personal testimonies, Hitlerland offers a gripping narrative full of surprising twists—and a startlingly fresh perspective on this heavily dissected era.

Some of the Americans in Weimar and then Hitler’s Germany were merely casual observers, others deliberately blind; a few were Nazi apologists. But most slowly began to understand the horror of what was unfolding, even when they found it difficult to grasp the breadth of the catastrophe.

Among the journalists, William Shirer, Edgar Mowrer, and Dorothy Thompson were increasingly alarmed. Consul General George Messersmith stood out among the American diplomats because of his passion and courage. Truman Smith, the first American official to meet Hitler, was an astute political observer and a remarkably resourceful military attaché. Historian William Dodd, whom FDR tapped as ambassador in Hitler’s Berlin, left disillusioned; his daughter Martha scandalized the embassy with her procession of lovers from her initial infatuation with Nazis she took up with. She ended as a Soviet spy.

On the scene were George Kennan, who would become famous as the architect of containment; Richard Helms, who rose to the top of the CIA; Howard K. Smith, who would coanchor the ABC Evening News. The list of prominent visitors included writers Sinclair Lewis and Thomas Wolfe, famed aviator Charles Lindbergh, the great athlete Jesse Owens, newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst, and black sociologist and historian W.E.B. Dubois.

Observing Hitler and his movement up close, the most perceptive of these Americans helped their reluctant countrymen begin to understand the nature of Nazi Germany as it ruthlessly eliminated political opponents, instilled hatred of Jews and anyone deemed a member of an inferior race, and readied its military and its people for a war for global domination. They helped prepare Americans for the years of struggle ahead.

 Серия: Война в воздухе


В годы Второй Мировой войны люфтваффе не располагало полноценными стратегическими бомбардировщиками, аналогичными английским машинам «Lancaster» или «Halifax», а также американским В-17, В-24 или В-29.

Попытки создать немецкий стратегический бомбардировщик предпринимались во второй половине 30-х годов и закончились неудачей. Появившиеся в результате самолеты типа Do 19 или Ju 89/ Ju 90 остались на стадии прототипа или пошли в мелкую серию.

Другим кандидатом в стратегические бомбардировщики был Не 177.

Обложка книги Hitler's Rockets Hitler's Rockets

 Автор: Longmate Norman


In Hitler’s Rockets Norman Longmate tells the story of the V-2, the technically brilliant but hated weapon, the ancestor and forerunner of all subsequent ballistic missiles. He reveals the devious power-play within the German armed forces and the Nazi establishment that so influenced the creation of the rockets. He shows through contemporary documents and protagonists’ accounts how the British intelligence skillfully pieced together often contradictory evidence as it sought to establish the true nature of the threat. Finally he recalls in detail the feel and fears of the time from the viewpoint of those who suffered, and those who were all too conscious tat they were the target.

Проектирование Не-111 началось в первые месяцы 1934 г.. Ведущую роль в проектировании играли дипломированные инженеры Зигфрид Гюнтер и Карл Швацлср. Не- 111 продолжал линию, начатую Нс-70: аэродинамически чистый, цельнометаллический с потайной клейкой обшивки моноплан с крылом и горизонтальным оперением эллиптической в плане формы, с убираемыми основными опорами шасси и фиксированной хвостовой стойкой. Фюзеляж начинался с прозрачною носа, где размешалась кабина штурмана. После многочисленных продувок моделей в аэродинамических трубах, в 1934 г. был изготовлен деревянный макет самолета. Макет произвел благоприятное впечатление на представителей только что созданною министерства авиации (RLM). Военные предложили Хсйнкслю переделать пассажирский самолет в бомбардировщик.

Обложка книги Heinkel Не 100 Heinkel Не 100

 Автор: Иванов С В

 Серия: Война в воздухе


Не-100 остался в истории авиации по двум основным причинам. Первым был факт установления на нем нового абсолютного мирового рекорда скорости. Самолет был действительно одним из самых скоростных в своем классе. Однако не прекрасные летные характеристики стали причиной того, что Не-100 стал так широко известен. Эта причина – прежде всего изощренная пропаганда III-го Рейха, которая представляла его в качестве нового совершенного истребителя Люфтваффе. Вся эта операция по дезинформации оказалась на столько удачной, что пилоты воюющих с Германией стран, периодически заявляли о фактах воздушных боев с этими самолетами («Не-113»), и это даже вне зависимости от того проходили ли они в Европе или на Тихом океане.

В годы, предшествующие Второй Мировой войне, Британское Министерство Авиации стало проводить в развитии своих бомбардировочных сил практику, базирующуюся в принятии на вооружение бомбардировщиков трех типов, создававшихся в соответствии с имевшимися на тот момент техническими возможностями и военно-политической ситуацией. Первым таким «трио» стали «Хэмпден», «Уитли» и «Веллингтон», Затем, когда практика ведения воздушной войны изменилась, появились «Стирлинг», «Галифакс» и «Ланкастер». И, наконец, в послевоенные годы на вооружение были приняты «Вэлиент», «Виктор» и «Вулкан». Но в каждом случае в такой «троице» один из самолетов играл основную роль. Поэтому «Веллингтон», «Ланкастер» и «Вулкан» сыграли более заметные роли, чем их оставшиеся в тени собратья.

 Автор: Иванов С В

 Серия: Война в воздухе


Сегодня уже ни у кого не вызывает сомнения гот факт, что гражданская война в Испании в 1936-39 годах фактически открыла Вторую Мировую войну. С военной точки зрения конфликт был уникальным для всех противоборствующих сторон прежде всего как шанс для апробации доктрины будущей войны. Кроме того, Испания также стала идеальным полигоном для испытания новых образцов техники, включая самолеты. Именно в этом конфликте впервые остро проявилась необходимость в «самолете поля боя». Также впервые для уничтожения небольших целей, таких как, например, корабли была применена атака с пикирования. Для этого широко использовались прежде всего новейшие по тем временам пикировщики «Юнкерсы» Ju 87.

Однако для уничтожения быстрых и маневренных целей как то танки или бронемашины, но прежнему использовали бипланы – например, «Хейнкель» Не 51 или «Хеншель» Hs 123. Однако эта же война показала, что эти устаревшие машины не подходят для этой роли в будущей маневренной войне. Поэтому в Германии остро встал вопрос о создании специализированного Schlachtflugzeug (штурмовика).

 Автор: Wittakers Eleanor


“All truth passes through 3 stages. First it’s ridiculed. Second, it’s violently opposed. Third, it’s accepted as being self-evident.”

— Arthur Schopenhauer

1. International Red Cross records refute “official” death toll. Sealed and guarded since the end of WWII at Arolsen, Germany, the Officials IRC records reveal the actual Concentration Camps total death toll was 271,301.

2. Number of death at Auschwitz revised in 1989 from 4.1 million to 1.5 million. “Official” account of 6 million death remain unchanged.

3. American gas chamber expert Dr. Leichter visited all sites and testified that supposed gas chambers “incapable” of supporting gas executions. No scientific proof of Jews exterminated.

4. Auschwitz Museum Curator admitted Russians created the infamous “homicidal gas chamber” post-war, by altering a German bomb shelter. Gas chimney was added by Soviets after the war.

5. No “Prussian blue” staining found on the walls of any supposed death chambers. Forensic evidence of gassings only found in delousing chambers, where Zyklon B was used to disinfect the prisoners clothing and bedding; to stop the spread of typhus epidemics.

6. The obsessive invocation of the cabalistic fable of “6 million dead or dying Jews” dating back at least four decades prior to the events of WWII directly undermines and betrays the notion that 6 million Jews perished in Europe between 1939-1945.

7. The “truth” that fear of investigation. Questioning any aspect of the Holocaust can land you in prison in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Czech, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Switzerland. Many had been beaten, humiliated and even killed for doing so.

8. According to Jewish World Almanacs, the world’s Jewish population increased from 1933-1948. From 15,315,000 to 15,753,000 of Jews. Where the 6 million drop?

Why can’t we ask questions? Why is Holocaust dogma defended with such vitriol?

“Histories were written by the victors.”

— Winston Churchill

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

— Voltaire

“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses.”

— Plato

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.”

— Dresden James

Science, documents and common sense collide with religious dogma.

In the age of information, ignorance is a choice. You have at your fingertips, limitless of supply of knowledge. So if you want to base your perception of history not on your own research but on the controlled mass media and the garbage that comes out of Hollywood, then go ahead. Hollywood which is controlled by the very same people, who have vested financial and political interest in promoting their own version of history. Hollywood’s depiction of the World War 2 and the Holocaust is as accurate as their depiction of the Wild West

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent, guilty and to make the guilty, innocent, and that’s the power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”

Обложка книги Hitler's Pre-emptive War Hitler's Pre-emptive War

 Автор: Lunde Henrik O


A thorough examination of one of history’s revolutionary campaigns…

After Hitler conquered Poland, and while still fine-tuning his plans against France, the British began to exert control of the coastline of neutral Norway, an action that threatened to cut off Germany’s iron-ore conduit to Sweden and outflank from the start its hegemony on the Continent.

The Germans quickly responded with a dizzying series of assaults, using every tool of modern warfare developed in the previous generation. Airlifted infantry, mountain troops and paratroopers were dispatched to the Scandinavian nation, seizing Norwegian strong points while forestalling larger but more cumbersome Allied units.

The German navy also set sail, taking a brutal beating at the hands of Britannia, while ensuring with its sacrifice that key harbors could be held open for resupply. As dive bombers soared overhead, small but elite German units traversed forbidding terrain to ambush Allied units trying to forge inland. At Narvik, some 6,000 German troops battled 20,000 French and British, until the Allies were finally forced to withdraw by the great disaster in France, which had then get underway.

As a veritable coda to the campaign, the aircraft carrier Glorious, while trying to sail back to Britain, was hammered under the waves by the German battle cruiser Scharnhorst.

The air, airborne, sea, amphibious, infantry, armor and commando aspects of this brief but violent campaign are here covered in meticulous detail. Henrik Lunde, a native Norwegian and former U.S. Special Operations colonel, has written perhaps the most objective account to date of a campaign in which 20th century military innovation found its first fertile playing field.

Обложка книги Hidden Figures Hidden Figures

 Автор: Shetterly Margot Lee


The phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. Soon to be a major motion picture starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae, Kirsten Dunst, and Kevin Costner.

Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.

Among these problem-solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation. Originally relegated to teaching math in the South’s segregated public schools, they were called into service during the labor shortages of World War II, when America’s aeronautics industry was in dire need of anyone who had the right stuff. Suddenly, these overlooked math whizzes had a shot at jobs worthy of their skills, and they answered Uncle Sam’s call, moving to Hampton, Virginia and the fascinating, high-energy world of the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory.

Even as Virginia’s Jim Crow laws required them to be segregated from their white counterparts, the women of Langley’s all-black “West Computing” group helped America achieve one of the things it desired most: a decisive victory over the Soviet Union in the Cold War, and complete domination of the heavens.

Starting in World War II and moving through to the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and the Space Race, Hidden Figures follows the interwoven accounts of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, four African American women who participated in some of NASA’s greatest successes. It chronicles their careers over nearly three decades they faced challenges, forged alliances and used their intellect to change their own lives, and their country’s future.

Обложка книги Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

 Автор: Harari Yuval Noah


Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestseller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity’s future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.

Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but, as Harari explains in his trademark style—thorough, yet riveting—famine, plague and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda.

What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century—from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times bestseller, Harari maps out our future.

Ювал Ной Харарі, професор історичного факультету Єврейського університету в Єрусалимі, у книжці «Ноmо Deus» піднімає філософські питання, аналізує досвід, який людство здобуло за час свого розвитку, заглиблюється в наші емоції і свідомість. Автор пропонує ескіз майбутнього людства, цілком реальний і не обов’язково райдужний.

Скажімо, люди завжди хотіли подолати старість і злидні й дорівнятися до богів. Але для цього вони мають отримати контроль над власного біологічною основою. Якщо колись смерть і біль зникнуть із нашого життя, а підстави сподіватися на це не такі вже й нереальні, ми зможемо подвоїти тривалість життя або й жити скільки заманеться... На допомогу нам уже зараз приходять різноманітні пристрої зі штучним інтелектом. Та чи впевнені ми, що комп’ютери не мають жодних відчуттів чи бажань? А якщо вони не мають їх нині, то, може, коли стануть значно складнішими, зможуть розвивати власну свідомість? Якщо так станеться, як ми про це дізнаємося? І головне питання — якими будуть суспільні відносини? Чи не стане пересічна людина рабом штучно створених і вічно живих істот із незбагненною свідомістю?

Обложка книги Hell Ship Hell Ship

 Автор: Veitch Michael


The riveting story of one of the most calamitous voyages in Australian history, the plague-stricken sailing ship Ticonderoga that left England for Victoria with 800 doomed emigrants on board.

For more than a century and a half, a grim tale has passed down through Michael Veitch’s family: the story of the Ticonderoga, a clipper ship that sailed from Liverpool in August 1852, crammed with poor but hopeful emigrants—mostly Scottish victims of the Clearances and the potato famine. A better life, they believed, awaited them in Australia.

Three months later, a ghost ship crept into Port Phillip Bay flying the dreaded yellow flag of contagion. On her horrific three-month voyage, deadly typhus had erupted, killing a quarter of Ticonderoga’s passengers and leaving many more desperately ill. Sharks, it was said, had followed her passage as the victims were buried at sea.

Panic struck Melbourne. Forbidden to dock at the gold-boom town, the ship was directed to a lonely beach on the far tip of the Mornington Peninsula, a place now called Ticonderoga Bay.

James William Henry Veitch was the ship’s assistant surgeon, on his first appointment at sea. Among the volunteers who helped him tend to the sick and dying was a young woman from the island of Mull, Annie Morrison. What happened between them on that terrible voyage is a testament to human resilience, and to love.

Michael Veitch is their great-great-grandson, and Hell Ship is his brilliantly researched narrative of one of the biggest stories of its day, now all but forgotten. Broader than his own family’s story, it brings to life the hardships and horrors endured by those who came by sea to seek a new life in Australia.

В своей первой книге, ставшей всемирной сенсацией «Sapiens. Краткая история человечества», Юваль Харари рассказал, как Человек Разумный пришел к господству над нашей планетой. «Homo Deus» является своего рода продолжением темы – это попытка заглянуть в будущее.

Что произойдет, когда Google и Facebook будут лучше, чем мы сами, знать наши вкусы, личные симпатии и политические предпочтения? Что будут делать миллиарды людей, вытесненных компьютерами с рынка труда и образовавших новый, бесполезный класс? Как воспримут религии генную инженерию? Каковы будут последствия перехода полномочий и компетенций от живых людей к сетевым алгоритмам? Что должен предпринять человек, чтобы защитить планету от своей же разрушительной силы?..

Главное сейчас, полагает Харари, – осознать, что мы находимся на перепутье, и понять, куда ведут пути, простирающиеся перед нами. Мы не в силах остановить ход истории, но можем выбрать направление движения.

В чем разница между людьми и другими животными?

Как наш вид завоевал мир?

Homo sapiens – высшая форма жизни или хулиган местного масштаба?

Какой мир создали люди?

Как люди пришли к убеждению, что они не только контролируют мир, но и наделяют его смыслом?

Как гуманизм – поклонение человечеству – стал самой важной из всех религий?

Способны ли люди и впредь управлять миром и наделять его смыслом?

Чем грозят гуманизму биотехнологии и искусственный интеллект?

Кто унаследует человечество и какая новая религия может прийти на смену гуманизму?

Обложка книги Hallucinations Hallucinations

 Автор: Sacks Oliver


Have you ever seen something that wasn’t really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing?

Hallucinations don’t belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people. People with failing eyesight, paradoxically, may become immersed in a hallucinatory visual world. Hallucinations can be brought on by a simple fever or even the act of waking or falling asleep, when people have visions ranging from luminous blobs of color to beautifully detailed faces or terrifying ogres. Those who are bereaved may receive comforting “visits” from the departed. In some conditions, hallucinations can lead to religious epiphanies or even the feeling of leaving one’s own body.

Humans have always sought such life-changing visions, and for thousands of years have used hallucinogenic compounds to achieve them. As a young doctor in California in the 1960s, Oliver Sacks had both a personal and a professional interest in psychedelics. These, along with his early migraine experiences, launched a lifelong investigation into the varieties of hallucinatory experience.

Here, with his usual elegance, curiosity, and compassion, Dr. Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to illuminate what hallucinations tell us about the organization and structure of our brains, how they have influenced every culture’s folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all, a vital part of the human condition.

Обложка книги Handbook of Vanilla Science and Technology Handbook of Vanilla Science and Technology

 Автор: Havkin-Frenkel Daphna, Belanger Faith C


Vanilla is the world’s most popular flavor. It is a universally appreciated flavor on its own and it also provides smoothness and body when used in combination with other flavors. The aroma of vanilla extract is intoxicating and those who work with any aspect of vanilla become intoxicated with the subject. The vanilla orchid is indigenous to Mexico and was first used and cultivated by the Totonac Indians. Now, vanilla cultivation, extraction, analysis, and marketing are major international industries. This book has chapters covering each of these aspects of vanilla, as well as chapters on the biology of vanilla and the potential for biotechnological production of vanillin. The topics covered in this book will be of interest to those involved in the business and biology of vanilla. We would like to thank all of the authors of the chapters for an excellent job of summarizing the many different aspects of vanilla.

Обложка книги Hannah Arendt: The Last Interview and Other Conversations Hannah Arendt: The Last Interview and Other Conversations

 Автор: Arendt Hannah


Arendt was one of the most important thinkers of her time, famous for her idea of “the banality of evil” which continues to provoke debate. This collection provides new and startling insight into Arendt’s thoughts about Watergate and the nature of American politics, about totalitarianism and history, and her own experiences as an émigré.

Hannah Arendt: The Last Interview and Other Conversations is an extraordinary portrait of one of the twentieth century’s boldest and most original thinkers. As well as Arendt’s last interview with French journalist Roger Errera, the volume features an important interview from the early 60s with German journalist Gunter Gaus, in which the two discuss Arendt’s childhood and her escape from Europe, and a conversation with acclaimed historian of the Nazi period, Joachim Fest, as well as other exchanges.

These interviews show Arendt in vigorous intellectual form, taking up the issues of her day with energy and wit. She offers comments on the nature of American politics, on Watergate and the Pentagon Papers, on Israel; remembers her youth and her early experience of anti-Semitism, and then the swift rise of the Hitler; debates questions of state power and discusses her own processes of thinking and writing. Hers is an intelligence that never rests, that demands always of her interlocutors, and her readers, that they think critically. As she puts it in her last interview, just six months before her death at the age of 69, “there are no dangerous thoughts, for the simple reason that thinking itself is such a dangerous enterprise.”

Review

“We are still living in Hannah Arendt’s world… It is hard to name a thinker of the twentieth century more sought after as a guide to the dilemmas of the twenty-first.”

—Adam Kirsch, The New Yorker

“The combination of tremendous intellectual power with great common sense makes Miss Arendt’s insight into history and politics seem both amazing and obvious.”

—Mary McCarthy

“[Arendt] took responsibility for observing the inhuman uses of power and for summoning her generation to judgment and action.”

—Samantha Power, The New York Review of Books

Обложка книги Hitler's Last Secretary Hitler's Last Secretary

 Автор: Junge Traudl, üller Melissa


In 1942 Germany, Traudl Junge was a young woman with dreams of becoming a ballerina when she was offered the chance of a lifetime. At the age of twenty-two she became private secretary to Adolf Hitler and served him for two and a half years, right up to the bitter end. Junge observed the intimate workings of Hitler’s administration, she typed correspondence and speeches, including Hitler’s public and private last will and testament; she ate her meals and spent evenings with him; and she was close enough to hear the bomb that was intended to assassinate Hitler in the Wolf’s Lair, close enough to smell the bitter almond odor of Eva Braun’s cyanide pill. In her intimate, detailed memoir, Junge invites readers to experience day-to-day life with the most horrible dictator of the twentieth century.

Review

A fascinating insight into the charismatic nature of Hitler’s appeal.

About the Author

Traudl Junge was born in Munich in 1920. From the end of 1942 until April 1945 she was Hitler’s private secretary. After the war she was sent to a Russian prison camp and later returned to Germany. She died on February 10, 2002, shortly after the publication of the German edition of her book.

‘A rare and fascinating insight into Hitler’s inner circle.’

– Roger Moorhouse, author of Killing Hitler

‘The last unpublished work by a Nazi of any significance.’

The Sunday Telegraph

As secretary to the Führer throughout the time of the Third Reich, Christa Schroeder was perfectly placed to observe the actions and behavior of Hitler, along with the most important figures surrounding him.

Schroeder’s memoir does not fail to deliver fascinating insights: she notes his bourgeois manners, his vehement abstemiousness and his mood swings. Indeed, she was ostracized by Hitler for a number of months after she made the mistake of publicly contradicting him once too often.

In addition to her portrayal of Hitler, there are illuminating anecdotes about Hitler’s closest colleagues. She recalls, for instance, that the relationship between Martin Bormann and his brother Albert (who was on Hitler’s personal staff) was so bad that the two would only communicate with one another via their respective adjutants◦– even if they were in the same room. There is also light shed on the peculiar personal life and insanity of Reichsminister Walther Darré.

Schroeder claims to have known nothing of the horrors of the Nazi regime. There is nothing of the sense of perspective or the mea culpa that one finds in the memoirs of Hitler’s other secretary, Traudl Junge◦– who concluded ‘we should have known’. Rather the tone that pervades Schroeder’s memoir is one of bitterness. This is, without any doubt, one of the most important primary sources from the pre-war and wartime period.

Christa Schroeder was Hitler’s personal secretary for twelve years in total. She worked as his secretary until his suicide in April 1945, living at the Wolfsschanze near Rastenburg. Her memoir Er War Mein Chef was first published in 1985, a year after her death in Munich, aged 76.

“A thoroughly entertaining account of human follies and foibles from ancient times to the present.”

—Penny Le Couteur, author of Napoleon’s Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History

Modern humans have come a long way in the seventy thousand years they’ve walked the earth. Art, science, culture, trade—on the evolutionary food chain, we’re true winners. But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, and sometimes—just occasionally—we’ve managed to truly f*ck things up.

Weaving together history, science, politics and pop culture, Humans offers a panoramic exploration of humankind in all its glory, or lack thereof. From Lucy, our first ancestor, who fell out of a tree and died, to General Zhou Shou of China, who stored gunpowder in his palace before a lantern festival, to the Austrian army attacking itself one drunken night, to the most spectacular fails of the present day, Humans reveals how even the most mundane mistakes can shift the course of civilization as we know it. Lively, wry and brimming with brilliant insight, this unique compendium offers a fresh take on world history and is one of the most entertaining reads of the year.
