  • The Art of War

    Sun Tzu

    Militaire geschiedenis An Apple Books Classic edition. It’s believed that Sun Tzu wrote this Chinese military primer during the 5th century BC-hundreds of years before the Bible. The book’s 13 chapters explore principles that statesmen around the globe have employed for centuries to defeat their enemies at war. Sun Tzu starts by mapping out the five fundamental factors that lead to war. He then covers a wide range of topics, from avoiding conflict altogether to strategically positioning soldiers, pulling off tactical maneuvers, and putting spies to use. Despite the technological advances made since The Art of War was published, Sun Tzu is still considered one of history’s foremost military strategists, and his methods still ring true. While he wrote the book as a manual for those who would literally wield swords, it has reached a much broader audience in this day and age. Warriors of all kinds-like corporate leaders or athletes-seek out Sun Tzu’s wisdom in their quest for success.
  • Willem de Zwijger, Prins van Oranje

    Ruth Putnam

    Geschiedenis In Nassau was Jan niet minder werkzaam, hoewel in begrensder kring, in vergelijking van zijn meer beroemden broeder. Hij bevorderde den vooruitgang van zijn land en volk door het oprichten van rechtbanken, het uitbreiden van den handel en het ontginnen van mijnen. In 1511 stichtte hij een kerk en school te Dillenburg. Door zijn huwelijk met Elisabeth van Hessen, bereidde hij zijn zoon Willem een levenslang verdriet, want daardoor had Nassau recht verkregen op een deel van de Catzenellenbogen-goederen, waarover meer dan een halve eeuw is getwist.

  • World War 2 History: True Stories of the Wehrmacht War Crimes and Atrocities

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Militaire geschiedenis The Second World War was, no doubt, one of the worst experiences mankind has ever faced. From torture to rape to murder, crimes against innocents were innumerous – Adolf Hitler, a diminutive man with the oratorical skills of a genius took advantage of a sensitive situation in the aftermath of Germany's defeat in the First World War and amassed enough power to bring the entire European continent to its knees. In the forefront of Hitler's troops were the Wehrmacht, which had some of the most elite, most powerful and most brutal soldiers in the world. What's sad is that at the end of the Second World War, when the Nuremberg Trials took place and most of the WW2 criminals were tried and then punished, the Wehrmacht was declared as not a criminal organization. This was because of a legal technicality and loophole that left them as simply part of the German Armed Forces. Just because they were ruled as 'not a criminal organization', it doesn't mean that they weren't criminals – there ar

  • Egyptian Mythology A Fascinating Guide to Understanding the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and Mortals

    Matt Clayton

    Geschiedenis Afrika From what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing—hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.  In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet—Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them. Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedrock of our own history. Though Egypt today is only a third-world nation, struggling with terrorism and poverty, their heritage remains vital to the understanding of who we are as a species.

  • The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria

    Morris Jastrow

    Geschiedenis van de oudheid Babylonia and Assyria were two great eastern empires before which all the states of Syria and Palestine fell. About their history, we learn partially from the bible and the contemporary monuments that have been written in cuneiform characters, deciphered recently. Babylonia was an ancient Akkadian-speaking Semitic state based in central-southern Mesopotamia. Its major capital city was Babylon, which expanded in the first half of the 18th century B.C.  Assyria was a major Mesopotamian East Semitic kingdom and empire of the Ancient Near East. It was based on the Upper Tigris River, in northern Mesopotamia. Until the middle of the 19th century, there weren’t many sources from which we could learn in depth about these two empires. This counts especially for the religion of the Babylonians and Assyrians. There were no records to give a glimpse at religious as and customs of these two kingdoms. The two main, direct sources are the Old Testament and Herodotus. Having in mind this lack
  • An Extensive Bibliography For Understanding The Life Of Malcolm X

    Thomas Rush

    Geschiedenis In being a key international presence during the 1950's and '60's, the reverberations of Malcolm X's meaning for that period, particularly in Civil Rights' circles, has inspired unknown generations of people to examine him. His existence is pored over in nearly every facet of American life, spanning from schools, colleges, universities, cultural entities, labor unions, religious bodies, community organizations, political parties to musical rappers. Malcolm is seen to have such meaning, on so many fronts. There are many, who may be unaware of where to go, to seek out literature about him. I have simply put this bibliography together to be a resource to anyone who wishes to know him.

    Ernest Shackleton

    Geschiedenis wereld An Apple Books Classic edition. “Huge blocks of ice, weighing many tons, were lifted into the air and tossed aside as other masses rose beneath them. We were helpless intruders in a strange world, our lives dependent upon the play of grim elementary forces that made a mock of our puny efforts.” In the canon of true stories of adventure and exploration, Ernest Shackleton’s first-person account of the Endurance expedition stands alone. In 1914, Shackleton’s crew set out to traverse the Antarctic continent When their ship was crushed between massive sheets of ice, hope soon gave way to terror. After being trapped on a floe, Shackleton’s men risk life and limb to reach the shores of a desolate outcrop, where a small group sets out in search of rescue. Shackleton documents their harrowing journey in an uncovered lifeboat, enduring freezing weather and unimaginable conditions. This riveting life-and-death drama is a testament to the human spirit.

  • Moriae encomium. Dutch

    Desiderius Erasmus

    Geschiedenis Erasmus, beroemd humanist, droeg aan zijn vriend Thomas More de Laus Stultitiae - de Lof der Zotheid - op. Het geschrift, waarin de Zotheid als hoofdpersoon aan het woord is, was bedoeld als scherts en soms bijtende satire over de menselijke dwaasheden. Hoofdthema is de stelling 'Heel het menselijk leven is niets anders dan een spel der zotheid'. Uitgaande van deze stelling is het boekje een en al paradoxen en de lezer wordt geconfronteerd met een wereldbeeld bekeken door de spiegel der Zotheid. Spreekt hier wellicht de wijsheid gezien door de ogen van een Zot? De lezer moet zelf zijn stellingname bepalen. De latijnse tekst staat naast de nederlandse afgedrukt en zonder moeite laat zich vaststellen dat de moderne vertaling het zeer goed doet. Gelukkig geen gezochte humor maar wel 'to the point'. Voor classici en iedereen, die 'klassiek' voelt een waardevolle uitgave.

  • Hitler's Youth: An Analysis of Mein Kampf

    Isuru Abeysinghe

    Geschiedenis Hitler's autobiographical book Mein Kampf, the official doctrine of the NAZI regime during WWII, is not a book that many would consider to read. Modern society is generally very well acquainted with Hitler and the ultimate outcome of his philosophical stances and will automatically denounce such notions based on a purely humanitarian and moral standpoint. The book remains illegal in many parts of the world (particularly Europe) and it rightfully considered one of the most powerful, destructive and divisive doctrines in modern history. While the book is often confronting in it's content it is still to my opinion an essential read because contained therein are the techniques of a master manipulator. It shows clearly that the doctrine of genocide-inducing hatred is not always - or even generally - a chaotic ramble of spiteful extremist verses but rather a considered and deliberate propagandist argument, one which at many points seems benign and even agreeable and always poses a compellin
  • History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

    Edward Gibbon

    Geschiedenis van de oudheid The great work of Gibbon is indispensable to the student of history. The literature of Europe offers no substitute for The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It has obtained undisputed possession, as rightful occupant, of the vast period which it comprehends. However some subjects, which it embraces, may have undergone more complete investigation, on the general view of the whole period, this history is the sole undisputed authority to which all defer, and from which few appeal to the original writers, or to more modern compilers.
  • De komedianten

    Louis Couperus

    Geschiedenis Bij Nijgh en Van Ditmar's uitgeversmaatschappij te Rotterdam verscheen 'De Komedianten', door Louis Couperus. Met groot uitbeeldend talent, in realistischen schrijftrant, hangt de schrijver in dezen roman een aanschouwelijk tafereel op van den tijd van den beruchten Romeinschen keizer Domitianus. De auteur verstaat de kunst, om zijn helden en heldinnen in de oude keizersstad op een wijze ten tooneele te voeren, alsof alles zich voor onze oogen afspeelt. In 't bizonder geeft het aaneengeschakeld verhaal een treffend beeld van de toenmalige hofhouding en 't volksbestaan, door het theaterleven er omheen te weven en de 'komedianten' sprekend in te voeren, die ter eere van de 'Groote Godin' moesten spelen. Een machtig stuk historie is in dien boeienden vorm aan de vergetelheid ontrukt.
  • Een twaalftal samenspraken

    Desiderius Erasmus

    Geschiedenis Rotterdam claimt de geboorte van Desiderius (Roterodamus) Erasmus, maar daar zijn de geleerden het niet helemaal over eens, ook Gouda wordt als zijn geboorteplaats genoemd, en als we de tijd rekenen die deze vooruitstrevende geleerde in Rotterdam doorbracht, is het bijna onterecht om hem een Rotterdammer te noemen. Maar, is dat verder van belang? Nee, niet echt, want wat echt belangrijk is, is dat deze man in zijn tijd een ver vooruitziende blik had en de mens kon beschouwen zoals deze werkelijk was - en dat was niet altijd mooi, evenals het vandaag de dag nog steeds niet mooi is. Ook al zijn de getallen veranderd en ook al is de burger mondiger geworden en weten we meer dan onze voorvaderen, in de basis is de mens nog net zo corrupt en slecht en alleen uit op eigenbelang en zelfverrijking. Hoe hoger in de hiërarchie, hoe meer de neiging tot graaien en liegen bestaat. Dat had Erasmus al heel goed in de gaten en hij schreef er ook vrijmoedig over, wat hem dan ook meestal niet in dank

Is zulks bij u het geval, dan miskent gij mijne bedoelingen. Neen, Mevrouw, of Mejuffrouw, wie gij zijn moogt! ik heb te veel eerbied voor uw gezond verstand om niet te weten, dat gij u met geen politiek bemoeit, en ik heb er u te liever om. —Maar al hadt gij ook onverhoopt eene geheime neiging tot de staatswetenschap, dan heb ik tevens te veel krediet voor het gezond oordeel van den smaakvollen vriend, die u den „Holland” als een St. -Nicolaasgeschenk aanbiedt, om niet te beseffen, dat hij zich wel zou wachten, die bestemming aan mijn boekje te geven, zoo hij kon gissen, dat het strekken kon om die neiging bij u te voeden. —Ik haast mij dus, om uwent- of om zijnentwille, u de verzekering te geven, dat zoo het opschrift, zoo ook de inhoud van dit eerste hoofdstuk weinig vermakelijks beloven voor het vervolg, ik
  • The Borgias

    Alexandre Dumas

    Geschiedenis Europa His works show an intimate knowledge of the characters, and they are written without sparing the details. The subjects are of historical importance and show the semi-lawlessness that was typical of Europe in the Middle Ages. The 'Celebrated Crimes' series were an instant hit and Dumas was inundated with suggestions of other celebrated criminals to write about.
  • The Plight of the Working Class

    Frederick Engels

    Geschiedenis Europa Frederick Engels (1820–1895) was twenty-two years old when he left Germany in the autumn of 1842 to settle in England. He came from a wealthy family of cotton manufacturers, which had established a branch in Manchester, in the heart of the new industrial capitalism. A contemporary of Karl Marx, Engels’ reaction to the industrial culture of the family business and the narrow-mindedness of his home life had made him a communist. While his father may have hoped this sojourn in England would make Frederick into a solid businessman, the son likely looked forward to immersing himself amidst the British proletariat, which he already recognized as the crucial revolutionary force in the modern world. By 1844 Engels was at work on a book. Writing about contemporary working conditions was not a new idea: by the 1830s it had become clear to most astute observers that the social problems produced by the new industrialism was no longer simply a matter of “the poor” but of an historically un
  • An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

    Adam Smith

    Geschiedenis Verenigde Staten He remembered how it had seemed to him to him, a priest sweet to die if he might die clasping unrebuked this woman in his arms. The blood throbbed in his temples as he recalled the wild thoughts that had swirled in a mad throng through his brain in those moments which had seemed like hours; the blood throbbed, too, in his wounded arm, so that a groan forced itself through his parched lips. He was constantly throwing himself to and fro as if to escape from some teasing thought, always to be by the sharp pang in his wound brought to a sense of his condition. The whole night passed in an agony of mind and body.

  • Leviathan

    Thomas Hobbes

    Geschiedenis I have tried to follow as closely as possible the original, and to give the flavour of the text that Hobbes himself proof read, but the following differences were unavoidable. Hobbes used capitals and italics very extensively, for emphasis, for proper names, for quotations, and sometimes, it seems, just because. The original has very extensive margin notes, which are used to show where he introduces the definitions of words and concepts, to give in short the subject that a paragraph or section is dealing with, and to give references to his quotations, largely but not exclusively biblical.
  • The Rise of the Dutch Republic — Complete

    John Lothrop Motley

    Geschiedenis Europa The rise of the Dutch Republic must ever be regarded as one of the leading events of modern times. Without the birth of this great commonwealth, the various historical phenomena of: the sixteenth and following centuries must have either not existed; or have presented themselves under essential modifications. The splendid empire of Charles the Fifth was erected upon the grave of liberty. It is a consolation to those who have hope in humanity to watch, under the reign of his successor, the gradual but triumphant resurrection of the spirit over which the sepulchre had so long been sealed.

    Aletta Henriette Jacobs

    Geschiedenis Met zekeren schroom zend ik deze brieven, die als dagbladartikelen bedoeld waren en door “De Telegraaf” gepubliceerd werden, thans in boekvorm de wereld in. Nooit is bij het neêrpennen er van de gedachte in mij opgekomen dat zij dien weg nog eenmaal zouden nemen. Eerst toen ik in het land terug was en van zoo verschillende zijden het verzoek tot mij kwam om die brieven te verzamelen en in boekvorm uit te geven, ben ik daartoe schoorvoetend over gegaan. Maar al te goed ben ik mij bewust dat er aan vorm en stijl veel ontbreekt en dat zij flink onder handen hadden moeten worden genomen, alvorens zij op nieuw gedrukt en uitgegeven werden. Daartoe ontbrak mij de tijd. Doch ook indien ik aan het veranderen was begonnen, zou ik de lust niet hebben kunnen weerstaan om in menige brief wat uitvoeriger over verschillende punten uit te weiden en hier en daar onderwerpen tusschen te voegen, die in dagblad-artikelen minder op hun plaats waren. Daardoor zouden dan evenwel deze brieven, die nu r

    Jacob Klinkhamer

    Geschiedenis Geschreven door een ervaren wetenschappelijk historicus vormt dit boek een omvangrijke, diepgaande en zorgvuldige biografie van Hugo de Groot (1583-1645) als rechtsgeleerde, literator, bestuurder, politicus en diplomaat. Bij het grote publiek geniet hij vooral bekendheid door zijn ontsnapping van slot Loevestein in een boekenkist; die episode komt weliswaar ook aan de orde, maar veel meer aandacht is er voor zijn rol als grondlegger van het internationale en volkenrecht. De levensbeschrijving van deze prominente figuur uit de Nederlandse geschiedeniscanon geeft een gedetailleerd beeld, niet alleen van De Groots eigen ideeen en loopbaan, maar ook/vooral van de politieke situatie (godsdiensttwisten, rivaliteiten) in de Nederlanden en Europa tijdens de Tachtigjarige Oorlog.

  • History of Florence and of the Affairs of Italy

    Niccolò Machiavelli

    Geschiedenis Europa Niccolo Machiavelli, the first great Italian historian, and one of the most eminent political writers of any age or country, was born at Florence, May 3, 1469. He was of an old though not wealthy Tuscan family, his father, who was a jurist, dying when Niccolo was sixteen years old. We know nothing of Machiavelli’s youth and little about his studies. He does not seem to have received the usual humanistic education of his time, as he knew no Greek. The first notice of Machiavelli is in 1498 when we find him holding the office of Secretary in the second Chancery of the Signoria, which office he retained till the downfall of the Florentine Republic in 1512. His unusual ability was soon recognized, and in 1500 he was sent on a mission to Louis XII. of France, and afterward on an embassy to Cæsar Borgia, the lord of Romagna, at Urbino. Machiavelli’s report and description of this and subsequent embassies to this prince, shows his undisguised admiration for the courage and cunning of C

De gebouwen dierzelfde Universiteit, die door de medische en aanverwante vakken gebruikt worden staan ten zuiden van het Golden Gate op de helling der rotsachtige heuvelen en bleven gespaard. Westelijk van Marketstreet, op het heuvelachtige gedeelte, was alles na de aardbeving en vóór den brand zoo goed als onbeschadigd. Maar het lage gedeelte der stad, dat deels op gewonen kleigrond en deels op aangeplempten grond staat, werd het hevigst geteisterd.

    Geschiedenis De brieven door mijn echtgenoot, op onze reis door verschillende Staten van Noord-Amerika in 1904 voor het Algemeen Handelsblad alhier geschreven, hebben blijkbaar de belangstelling van velen gewekt, want nog steeds ontvang ik van wijd en zijd aanvragen om inlichtingen. Het is om die reden, dat ik tot de uitgave er van besloot; zij zijn dan gemakkelijker te raadplegen voor hen, die naar Amerika willen gaan, of die van Amerika en Amerikaansche toestanden wat wenschen te weten. Eenige, gedurende onze reis door mij geschreven artikelen, in andere bladen verschenen, heb ik er bijgevoegd. Zij handelen grootendeels over andere onderwerpen en kunnen als aanvulling dienen.
  • Greek Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans

    Ross Tanner

    Geschiedenis Europa Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans Did you know that Zeus loved many women, both goddesses and mortals? Did you know that he turned himself into golden rain for one damsel who was locked away in a tower, and turned himself into a swan for another beauty? Did you know that he kidnapped one young princess which led to her brother founding the city of Thebes? And did you know that, to protect his own power, Zeus swallowed his first wife, just as Cronus had swallowed his own children in a previous age? Greek myth is full of fascinating tales of Titans and Olympian gods. Some of it makes us wonder if there might be some hint of truth behind those stories, no matter how outrageous they may sound. What parts of those stories were merely symbolic and what parts were literal? This book contains a brief, but unconventional look at the Titans and Olympian gods of Greek mythology. Brief, because a thorough treatment of these legendary super beings could take thousands of page

  • The Treasures of Pompeii & Herculaneum

    Mary Beard, Alastair Smart, Joanne Berry, Alex Butterworth, Ray Laurence, Bee Wilson, Tim Auld & Andrew Wallace-Hadrill

    Geschiedenis van de oudheid Two ordinary Roman cities on the Bay of Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum would probably have been footnotes in history had it not been for the sudden and savage method of their destruction in AD79, when Vesuvius erupted with cataclysmic force. The ruins lay buried for almost 1,700 years, their treasure-trove of artefacts preserved by the ash in which they were entombed. Their rediscovery has given us a unique insight into the lives of the people of the Roman Empire, how they worked and played, loved and worshipped. Here, in association with Goldman Sachs, supporter of the British Museum exhibition, ‘Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum’ (March 28-September 29 2013), we explore life (and death) in the ancient cities.

  • De Paasheuvel tussen goed & kwaad

    Walter Devenijns

    Geschiedenis Europa De Paasheuvel bij het Veluwse dorpje Vierhouten. Een plek met geschiedenis. Dit boek vertelt het verhaal van de opkomst van de socialistische jongerenbeweging AJC, de oorlog, de joodse onderduikers die er vermoord werden en de neergang van de jongerenbeweging in de jaren vijftig. Het boek laat de moeizame strijd om het bestaan zien na de oorlog, waarbij het monument de Zonnehal bijna verloren ging. Het rode hart verdwijnt om plaats te maken voor een commerciële organisatie. Het boek bevat nog nooit gepubliceerde historische foto’s, maar ook actuele illustraties.  Persoonlijke herinneringen worden verteld over de onderduikers en een Duitse socialistische vluchteling.  De levensloop van de Oostenrijkse SD’er en moordenaar Frankenstein wordt beschreven. Maar ook de poging om in de jaren tachtig ’gewone’ recreanten aan te trekken met de invoering van een ‘kinderdisco, voorzien van drie knipperende lampjes’. Kortom, het boek biedt een kijkje in het heden en verleden
  • The History of Rome, Book I

    Theodor Mommsen

    Geschiedenis van de oudheid The classical historian Theodor Mommsen (1817 1903) published his monumental History of Rome between 1854 and 1856. His work was received with widespread acclaim by the scholarly community and the reading public. In 1902 Mommsen was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and acclaimed as 'the greatest living master of the art of historical writing'. Mommsen rejected traditional Enlightenment accounts, which glorified ancient Rome; instead, guided by a new and rigorous criticism of sources, Mommsen began the demythologization of Roman history. In a vivacious and engaging style, Mommsen drew bold parallels between the nineteenth century and classical Rome. Volume 3 covers the turbulent period from the reforms of Tiberius Gracchus to the death of Sulla, with separate chapters on nationality, religion and education, and the Roman economy.
  • History of Australia and New Zealand

    Alexander Sutherland

    Geschiedenis Australië en Oceanië To the people who lived four centuries ago in Europe only a very small portion of the earth's surface was known. Their geography was confined to the regions lying immediately around the Mediterranean, and including Europe, the north of Africa, and the west of Asia. Round these there was a margin, obscurely and imperfectly described in the reports of merchants; but by far the greater part of the world was utterly unknown. Great realms of darkness stretched all beyond, nd closely hemmed in the little circle of light. In these unknown lands our ancestors loved to picture everything that was strange and mysterious. They believed that the man who could penetrate far enough would find countries where inexhaustible riches were to be gathered without toil from fertile shores, or marvellous valleys; and though wild tales were told of the dangers supposed to fill these regions, yet to the more daring and adventurous these only made the visions of boundless wealth and enchanting loveliness seem
  • The War in South Africa

    Arthur Conan Doyle

    Geschiedenis Arthur Conan Doyle made his reputation as a novelist, but far stranger than fiction is the creator of Sherlock Holmes' tale of the Boer War in South Africa. The then 40-year-old novelist wanted to see the war first hand as a soldier, but the Victorian army balked at having a popular author wielding a pen in its ranks. The army did accept him as a doctor and Doyle was knighted in 1902 for his work with a field hospital in Bloemfontein. Doyle's vivid account of the battles is in part thanks to the eye-witness accounts he got from his patients. Doyle has thoroughly mastered the details of the campaign, and presents them in a form that can be easily understood. Furthermore, his descriptions of the various engagements are masterpieces of graphic writing.

  • The Reign of Tiberius, Out of the First Six Annals of Tacitus;

    Cornelius Tacitus

    Geschiedenis van de oudheid Cornelius Tacitus' timeless history of three of Rome's most memorable emperors. Tacitus, who condemns the depravity of these rulers, which he saw as proof of the corrupting force of absolute power, writes caustically of the brutal and lecherous Tiberius, the weak and cuckolded Claudius, and "the artist" Nero. In particular, his gripping account of the bloody reigns of Tiberius and Nero brims with plots, murder, poisoning, suicide, uprisings, death, and destruction. The Annals also provides a vivid account of the violent suppression of the revolt led by Boudicca in Britain, the great fire of Rome under Nero, and the subsequent bloody persecution of the Christians.

  • World War 2: Stories of the Schutzstaffel: True Accounts of Hitler’s Personal Bodyguards

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis The instigator and the mastermind behind the Holocaust; Adolf Hitler of Germany, was at the forefront of the Second World War and ruined millions of lives, throwing the entire European continent into chaos. Not only was he hated by the whole world, even some of his own military commanders didn’t like him. Most leaders around the world rely on one, maybe two bodyguards to keep them safe. Even the President of the United States today has only one or two teams of security personnel; while there may be many men and women who take turns to protect their leader, the numbers are not as big as you would expect it to be. We will look at the origins of a number of bodies, such as the ‘Sturmabteilung’ or the SA, the Schutzstaffel (the SS) and the many other sub-sections of the SS such as the FBK, the LSSAH, etc., all of which were tasked with protecting Hitler. From the background, we will move on to individual accounts of men who served on these teams – they were Hitler’s persona

  • Tacitus on Germany

    Cornelius Tacitus

    Geschiedenis Europa The whole of Germany is thus bounded; separated from Gaul, from Rhoetia and Pannonia, by the rivers Rhine and Danube; from Sarmatia and Dacia by mutual fear, or by high mountains: the rest is encompassed by the ocean, which forms huge bays, and comprehends a tract of islands immense in extent: for we have lately known certain nations and kingdoms there, such as the war discovered. The Rhine rising in the Rhoetian Alps from a summit altogether rocky and perpendicular, after a small winding towards the west, is lost in the Northern Ocean. The Danube issues out of the mountain Abnoba, one very high but very easy of ascent, and traversing several nations, falls by six streams into the Euxine Sea; for its seventh channel is absorbed in the Fenns.

Schiller was not less efficiently qualified by nature for an historian than for a dramatist. He was formed to excel in all departments of literature, and the admirable lucidity of style and soundness and impartiality of judgment displayed in his historical writings will not easily be surpassed, and will always recommend them as popular expositions of the periods of which they treat.

    Jane Dieulafoy

    Geschiedenis De reis was niet lang geweest; doch na Victoria zeer warm. Wij maakten dan ook geen gebruik van de wachtende rijtuigen, doch begaven ons, in de avondkoelte, te voet langs de met boomen beplante kade, die het riviertje de Arlanzon begrenst, naar de bekoorlijke wandelplaats, Espolon genaamd, waar standbeelden van beroemde Castilianen prijken tusschen het groen der olmen en de kleurige bloemperken. Ook de bloem van Burgos' schoonen scheen hier bijeen verzameld, om te bewonderen, en bewonderende blikken op te vangen. Naast de meer aristocratische hoofddeksels der deftige dames, modieuse hoeden, beladen met vrachten bloemen, vruchten, linten, kant en veeren, maakte nog steeds de eenvoudige volksdracht, de mantilla, een bekoorlijken indruk, zooals zij in sierlijke plooien afhing van den coquet schuin gedragen grooten schildpadden kam, en met een roos of anjelier boven het oor was opgestoken.  .

Voor het eerst in de geschiedenis was een oorlog (met vaak schokkende beelden) direct in de huiskamers te volgen.  Mede door alle aandacht kwam er kwam er wereldwijd een  maatschappelijke discussie tot stand, wat enorm veel invloed op de oorlog heeft gehad en eigenlijk nog steeds heeft.  Er waren geen geheimen meer.

The strict conception of the unity and omnipotence of the state in all matters pertaining to it, which was the central principle of the Italian constitutions, placed in the hands of the single president nominated for life a formidable power, which was felt doubtless by the enemies of the land, but was not less heavily felt by its citizens.
