            The Fortress: The Great Siege of Przemysl
              

            The Fortress: The Great Siege of Przemysl (EPUB ebook)

            By Watson, Alexander

            From the prize-winning author of Ring of Steel, a gripping history of the First World War's longest and most terrible siege In the autumn of 1914 Europe was at war. The battling powers had already suffered casualties on a scale previously unimaginable. On both the Western and Eas...tern fronts elaborate war plans lay in ruins and had been discarded in favour of desperate improvisation. In the West this resulted in the remorseless world of the trenches; in the East all eyes were focused on the old, beleaguered Austro-Hungarian fortress of Przemysl.The siege that unfolded at Przemysl was the longest of the whole war. In the defence of the fortress and the struggle to relieve it Austria-Hungary suffered some 800,000 casualties. Almost unknown in the West, this was one of the great turning points of the conflict. If the Russians had broken through they could have invaded Central Europe, but by the time the fortress fell their strength was so sapped they could go no further.Alexander Watson, prize-winning author of Ring of Steel, has written one of the great epics of the First World War. Comparable to Stalingrad in 1942-3, Przemysl shaped the course of Europe's future. Neither Russians nor Austro-Hungarians ever recovered from their disasters. Using a huge range of sources, Watson brilliantly recreates a world of long-gone empires, broken armies and a cut-off community sliding into chaos. The siege was central to the war itself, but also a chilling harbinger of what would engulf the entire region in the coming decades, as nationalism, anti-semitism and an exterminatory fury took hold.

            By DiEdoardo, Christina

This volume is aims to present facts in as objective a way as possible while providing readers with the resources they need for further study.Exposes the main myths about torture and its useProvides readers with a solid foundation in the topicDiscusses the likely future of torture in the US and elsewhereReflects the author's expertise in the form of informed and nuanced perspectives essays

            In 1942, 618 'casualties of war', deported on Hitler's orders from the Channel Island of Jersey, were interned in a Baroque castle in the heart of a small southern German town. The author sets the story of the camps in the Schloss against the overall context of the rise of the Na...zi Party and the events that plunged the world into six years of war.

Armee leider ihr schreckliches Ende. Im Suden Russlands begannen wahrenddessen die deutschen Fronten zu wanken. Hunderttausende von Soldaten fluteten unter unvorstellbaren Bedingungen und Verlusten Richtung Westen. Trotzdem endeten diese Ruckzugsbewegungen nicht in dem vom sowjetischen Gegner prognostizierten totalen Fiasko. In den folgenden Monaten war wieder eine Stabilisierung eingetreten, und am 5. Juli 1943 traten die deutsche Armeen im Raum von Kursk sogar zum Gegenangriff an - zum Unternehmen Zitadelle. Zwischen Orel im Norden und Bjelgorod im Suden entbrannte die mit ungeheurer Erbitterung gefuhrte groesste Landschlacht der Geschichte, an deren Ende alle Hoffnungen der deutschen Fuhrung, das Blatt noch einmal zu wenden, endgultig zur Illusion geworden waren. Was in jenen furchtbaren Tagen geschah, erzahlt Walter Moench in diesem Buch.
