  • rise and fall of the third reich

     Here for the first time is the complete history of Hitler's empire.  No other empire ever bequeathed to historians such mountains of evidence about its rise and fall as the Third Reich. The Allied demand for unconditional surrender produced - before the Nazis could destroy their files - an almost hour-to-hour record of the nightmare realm created by Hitler. This record includes the testimony of Nazi leaders, concentration camp inmates, the diaries of officials, transcripts of secret conferences, army orders, private letters - all the vast paper work behind a conspiracy to conquer the world. This is also the story of Hitler the man - his love affairs, his imprisonment, his suicide.  There is also details of the plot to kidnap the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and hundreds of other inside stories. Most of all, it is the story of how Hitler destroyed his beloved Germany. The author, who watched and reported on the Nazis since 1925 had been reporting on-the-spot from Germany and Europe for almost forty years and spent over five years sifting the mountains of paper that eventually became this definitive history.

    The inside story of the victory in Africa and Europe by Montgomery's Chief of Staff.
  • Death In The Rice Fields

    The author, a TV reporter and journalist, has condensed his experiences and observations of the Indo-China battlefields over a thirty-five year period. Sights, sounds and smells come alive in the graphic and vivid recreation by a neutral yet passionately involved eye-witness.  Scholl-Latour first traveled to South-East Asia on a troop-ship in 1945 and since then has covered three wars: the war against French colonialism, the American involvement in Vietnam and the final devastation of Kampuchea. He sees those years as a tragedy that has shattered every illusion of freedom as the French, the Americans and the Khmer Rouge each tried to impose their versions of freedom by force.
