Обложка книги Napoléon. Le soleil d'Austerlitz Napoléon. Le soleil d'Austerlitz

 Автор: Gallo Max

 Серия: Napoléon


Le "Napoléon" de Max Gallo est à la fois une savante biographie historique et un palpitant roman d'aventures. Pouvait-il en être autrement alors que l'empereur lui-même s'exclamait "Quel roman que ma vie!"? Le récit captivant raconte en quatre tomes une destinée exceptionnelle: le lecteur est de toutes les batailles, de toutes les alcôves, de toutes les pensées de Napoléon. C'est d'abord "Le Chant du départ" (1769-1799) qui salue l'émergence de Bonaparte, le fils de la Révolution. Au lendemain du 18 Brumaire, "Le Soleil d'Austerlitz" (1799-1805) brille sur une fulgurante ascension couronnée par le sacre impérial et par le triomphe du militaire de génie. À son zénith, Bonaparte se heurte à une Europe coalisée dont il veut être le maître: c'est le temps de "L'Empereur des rois" (1806-1812). Plus dure en sera la chute qui aboutit à Waterloo. Mais la légende est en marche: battu et en exil, Napoléon reste "L'Immortel de Sainte-Hélène" (1812-1821).

Avec la plume enthousiaste de Max Gallo, l'Aigle déploie toute sa splendeur. (Loïs Klein).

Обложка книги Napoléon. L'empereur des rois Napoléon. L'empereur des rois

 Автор: Gallo Max

 Серия: Napoléon


Il est Napoléon le Grand: après Austerlitz, qui peut arrêter l'empereur des Français? Il bouscule les rois, à Iéna, à Friedland, à Wagram. Il conquiert les femmes: Marie Walewska, la Polonaise, et Marie-Louise, l'Autrichienne, la petite-nièce de Marie-Antoinette! Son fils, le roi de Rome, descend donc de l'empereur d'Autriche. Quel parcours!

Napoléon, que nous suivons pas à pas, s'humanise. Amant impérieux de Marie Walewska et mari attentionné de Marie-Louise, il voudrait retenir l'Histoire, ne pas avoir à engager le fer contre le Tsar. Mais il est emporté: "Et ainsi la guerre aura lieu malgré moi, malgré lui", confie-t-il.

Max Gallo nous fait partager, à chaque instant de chaque jour, les bonheurs et les ardeurs du père, du mari, de l'amant, la volonté et l'esprit de décision de cet empereur des rois, lancé dans le ciel de l'Histoire comme un météore. "Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre".

Обложка книги No Less Than Mystic No Less Than Mystic

 Автор: Medhurst John


Published in the centenary year of the 1917 Russian Revolution, No Less Than Mystic is a fresh and iconoclastic history of Lenin and the Bolsheviks for a generation uninterested in Cold War ideologies and stereotypes.

Although it offers a full and complete history of Leninism, 1917, the Russian Civil War and its aftermath, the book devotes more time than usual to the policies and actions of the socialist alternatives to Bolshevism–to the Menshevik Internationalists, the Socialist Revolutionaries (SRs), the Jewish Bundists and the anarchists. It prioritises Factory Committees, local Soviets, the Womens’ Zhenotdel movement, Proletkult and the Kronstadt sailors as much as the statements and actions of Lenin and Trotsky. Using the neglected writings and memoirs of Mensheviks like Julius Martov, SRs like Victor Chernov, Bolshevik oppositionists like Alexandra Kollontai and anarchists like Nestor Makhno, it traces a revolution gone wrong and suggests how it might have produced a more libertarian, emancipatory socialism than that created by Lenin and the Bolsheviks.

Although the book broadly covers the period from 1903 (the formation of the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks) to 1921 (the suppression of the Kronstadt rebellion) and explains why the Bolshevik Revolution degenerated so quickly into its apparent opposite, it continually examines the Leninist experiment through the lens of a 21st century, de-centralised, ecological, anti-productivist and feminist socialism. Throughout its narrative it interweaves and draws parallels with contemporary anti-capitalist struggles such as those of the Zapatistas, the Kurds, the Argentinean “Recovered Factories”, Occupy, the Arab Spring, the Indignados and Intersectional feminists, attempting to open up the past to the present and points in between.

We do not need another standard history of the Russian Revolution. This is not one.

Обложка книги Northmen, The Viking Saga 793-1241 AD Northmen, The Viking Saga 793-1241 AD

 Автор: Haywood John


The violent and predatory society of Dark Age Scandinavia left a unique impact on the history of medieval Europe. From their chill northern fastness, Norse warriors, explorers and merchants raided, traded, and settled across wide areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic from the late eighth to the mid-eleventh century.

Northmen narrates their story, focusing on places where key events were played out, from the sack of Lindisfarne in 793 to the murder of the saga-writer Snorri Sturluson in Iceland in 1241. Such episodes are fascinating in themselves, but also shed crucial light on the nature of Viking activity – its causes, effects, and the reasons for its decline.

In 800, the Scandinavians were barbarians in longships bent on plunder and rapine; by 1200, their homelands were an integral part of Latin Christendom. John Haywood tells, in authoritative but compellingly readable fashion, the extraordinary story of the Viking Age.

Обложка книги Nuking the Moon Nuking the Moon

 Автор: Houghton Vince


“A lot of the most successful covert actions begin life as crazy ideas… [this is] a collection of tales sure to entertain as well as inform.”

—Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and NSA, and New York Times bestselling author

The International Spy Museum’s Historian takes us on a wild tour of missions and schemes that almost happened, but were ultimately deemed too dangerous, expensive, ahead of their time, or even certifiably insane

In 1958, the U.S. Air Force nuked the moon as a show of military force. In 1967, the CIA sent live cats to spy on the Soviet government. In 1942, the British built a torpedo-proof aircraft carrier out of an iceberg. Of course, none of these things ever actually happened.

But in Nuking the Moon, intelligence historian Vince Houghton proves that abandoned plans can be just as illuminating—and every bit as entertaining—as the ones that made it. Vividly capturing the fascinating stories of how twenty-one plans from WWII and the Cold War went from conception, planning, and testing to cancellation, Houghton explores what happens when innovation meets desperation: For every plan as good as D-Day, there’s a scheme to strap bombs to bats or dig a spy tunnel underneath the Soviet embassy. Along the way, he reveals what each one tells us about twentieth-century history, the art of spycraft, military strategy, and famous figures like JFK, Castro, and Churchill. By turns terrifying and hilarious–but always riveting–this is the unique story of history left on the drawing board.

Обложка книги Nuremberg's Voice of Doom Nuremberg's Voice of Doom

 Автор: Frank Wolfe


THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE CHIEF INTERPRETER AT HISTORY’S GREATEST TRIALS….

The memoirs of Wolfe Frank, which lay hidden in an attic for twenty-five years, are a unique and highly moving behind-the-scenes account of what happened at Nuremberg – ‘the greatest trial in history’ – seen through the eyes of a witness to the whole proceedings. They include important historical information never previously revealed. In an extraordinarily explicit life story, Frank includes his personal encounters, inside and outside the courtroom, with all the war criminals, particularly Hermann Goering. This, therefore, is a unique record that adds substantially to what is already publicly known about the trials and the defendants.

Involved in proceedings from day one, Frank translated the first piece of evidence, interpreted the judges’ opening statements, and concluded the trials by announcing the sentences to the defendants (and several hundred million radio listeners) – which earned him the soubriquet ‘Voice of Doom’.

Prior to the war, Frank, who was of Jewish descent, was a Bavarian playboy, an engineer, a resistance worker, a smuggler (of money and Jews out of Germany) and was declared to be ‘an enemy of the State to be shot on sight’. Having escaped to Britain, he was interned at the outbreak of war but successfully campaigned for his release and eventually allowed to enlist in the British Army – in which he rose to the rank of Captain. Unable to speak English prior to his arrival, by the time of the Nuremberg trials he was described as the ‘finest interpreter in the world’.

A unique character of extreme contrasts Frank was a playboy, a risk taker and an opportunist. Yet he was also a man of immense courage, charm, good manners, integrity and ability. He undertook the toughest assignment imaginable at Nuremberg to a level that was ‘satisfactory alike to the bench, the defence and the prosecution’ and he played a major role in materially shortening the ‘enormously difficult procedures’ by an estimated three years.
