Forgotten Fatherland: The Search for Elisabeth Nietzsche
A Provocative Woman
This is one of the most curious books I have ever read: on the one hand, there is the story of a failed 19th C German colony in Paraguay, founded on eugenic principles that would be echoed in Hitler's time; on the other hand, there is the biography of one of the most overlooked figures in 19th C philosophy - Elisabeth Nietzsche, sister of the famed philosopher, and apparently the one who twisted ...
For the Fatherland
BookSurge Publishing, 2009
Growing up in Germany in the 1930s, Kurt Schultheiss was like the other kids in his neighborhood: rambunctious, inquisitive, and the center of his parents? world. With his blond hair and blue eyes, he was also the picture of Aryan purity, a poster child for the band of ?magnificent youngsters? with which Adolf Hitler plotted to build his ?new world.? As Hitler?s power grew, he created the Hitler Youth, a breeding ground for the Nazi SS. As ...
Bad Faith: A Forgotten History of Family and Fatherland

Born into an established, politically moderate family, Louis Darquier ('de Pellepoix' was a later affectation) proceeded from modest beginnings to dissemble his way to power, continually ...
Mothers in the Fatherland: Women, the Family and Nazi Politics
St. Martin's Griffin
Fascinating, Disturbing, Informative
"Mothers in the Fatherland: Women, the Family, and Nazi Politics," is a scholary work, but I read it quickly, as if it were a popular page-turner. I asked myself why I was reading it so quickly. I read this book so quickly, I think, because it fascinated me, of course, but also because it disturbed me and, given how informative the book is, I kept expecting that I'd turn the page and find ...
GOD, HONOR, FATHERLAND: A Photo History of Panzergrenadier Division "Grossdeutschland" on the Eastern Front ...
Well done picture history of an elite German division.
God, Honor, Fatherland is an excellent pictoral study of one of the Whermacht's truly elite divisions. The author covers "GD" from 1942 to 1944. Although I have a fairly extensive collection of books covering the German Army on the Eastern front, most photos in this book were new to me. The author made contact with numerous "GD" veterans and got many previously unpublished photos, many of ...
Fighting for the Fatherland: The Story of the German Soldier from 1648 to the Present Day
David J Stone
Potomac Books Inc.
A Potentially Good Book Marred with Several Problems
I had very high hopes for this book. I briefly read a few excerpts from the local Barnes and Noble, and what I saw, I liked. As soon as I could, I purchased this book from Amazon. It is fairly good overview of all of German history, with a particular emphasis on the German soldier. That is what makes this book good, when it sticks to talking about the soldiers, and anything particularly relating ...

Cambridge University Press
Fatherlands explores the nature of identity in nineteenth-century Germany, and has crucial implications for our understanding of nationalism, German unification and the German state in the modern era. It approaches these questions from a new and important angle, that of the non national territorial state, exploring the state-building process in non-Prussian Germany. The issues covered range from railway construction and German industrialization, ...
Cleansing the Fatherland: Nazi Medicine and Racial Hygiene
The Johns Hopkins University Press
not for everyone
This book is an exceptional survey of the development of a genocidal mentality among the doctors of the Third Reich. Of great interest to those doing research on this topic are the diaries of Nazi anatomist,Dr. Hermann Voss in Posen during the war. It demonstrates, among other things, a pervasive manichaean attitude that extended from Hitler on down- A tendency to view the world in ...
Fatherland: A Novel (Mortalis)
Random House Trade Paperbacks
Imperfect, but nevertheless one of the best alternate history novels of all time.
It's been some six years since I picked up a May 1993 edition of "Fatherland", a book I still have today. Six years is a long time, and so much happens in a period of time like that, it can be hard to remember everything. Yet I easily recall seeing that red paperback cover, the gold lettering of the front. The gold swastika that dominates the front cover, with a brass key set in its center. I ...
Women, the Novel, and the German Nation 1771-1871: Domestic Fiction in the Fatherland (Cambridge Studies in ...
Cambridge University Press
Todd Kontje offers the first survey in English of novels by German women from 1771 to 1871. He introduces readers to the lives and works of fourteen women writers of the period--including Sophie von LaRoche, Sophie Mereau, Fanny Lewald, and Eugenie Marlitt--and argues that their novels played an important role in shaping attitudes toward class, gender, and the nation in the century preceding Germany's first unification. Women, the Novel, and the ...
John B. Toews
Regent College Publishing
This book portrays one of the most dramatic episodes in recent Mennonite history. Set against the background of the early Soviet era in Russia, it narrates the story of a small religious and ethnic group caught in the tenacious grasp of political upheaval and social change. Having devoted a century of toil to the country whose patronage attracted them early in the nineteenth century, the Russian Mennonites faced a catastrophe of unprecedented ...

Roderick de Norman

"For Fuhrer and Fatherland" is the extraordinary story of how British and American Intelligence thwarted a wartime plan for a daring mass break-out of German prisoners-of-war from the PoW camp at Devizes in Wiltshire, led by a hard core of SS troops. As December 1944 drew to a close, trained US interrogators stumbled on a plan so fantastic in concept that it was hard to take seriously. The Interrogation Centre operatives broke the wills of the ...
For the Fatherland
Walter S Zapotoczny Jr.
For the Fatherland
This is a fascinating story about the Nazification of the German population. The story is told through the eyes of Kurt, a young man who grew up in Germany in the years after World War One. We watch Kurt's indoctrination into The Nazi Movement, his entrance and service in the "SS" and in the end, his regret for having done the things he had done. I could never understand how or why the ...
Easier Fatherland: Germany and The Twenty-first Century
For the stuff we're beginning to understand...
The short version of my review is, I thought this book was pretty good and you should go right out and read it. Crawshaw had the access to write on a personal level about highly complex political events, and does so in a way that is informative yet easy to digest without condescending. The longer version is, Germany, for most of its history, has been Europe's Other-with-a-capital-O. For most ...

This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process.
