Full-length accounts of three decisive WWII events—Pearl Harbor, Midway, and the evacuation of Dunkirk—from a #1 New York Times–bestselling author. In May 1940, the remnants of the French and British armies, broken by Hitler’s blitzkrieg, retreated to the beach at Dunkirk. Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered an evacuation on May 26, expecting to save no more than a handful of his men. But Britain would not let its soldiers down. Hundreds of fishing boats, pleasure yachts, and commercial vessels streamed into the Channel to back up the Royal Navy. The Miracle of Dunkirk is a striking history of a week when the fate of Britain—and the World—hung in the balance. On the morning of June 4, 1942, doom sailed on Midway. Hoping to put itself within striking distance of Hawaii and California, the Japanese navy planned an ambush that would obliterate the remnants of the American Pacific fleet. On paper, the Americans had no chance of winning. But because their code breakers knew what was coming, the American navy was able to prepare an ambush of its own. In Incredible Victory, Walter Lord recounts two days of savage battle, during which a small American fleet defied the odds and turned the tide of World War II. December 7, 1941, began as a quiet morning on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. But as Japan’s deadly torpedoes suddenly rained down on the Pacific fleet, soldiers, generals, and civilians alike felt shock, then fear, and then rage. From the chaos, a thousand personal stories of courage emerged. Drawn from hundreds of interviews, letters, and diaries, Walter Lord’s Day of Infamy recounts the many tales of heroism and tragedy of those who experienced the attack firsthand. These three acclaimed war chronicles showcase Walter Lord at the top of his game as a narrative nonfiction master.

Three New York Times–bestselling World War II histories, including the true story of the miraculous evacuation portrayed in the Christopher Nolan film Dunkirk. The monumental scope and breathtaking heroism of World War II are brought to vivid life in three riveting accounts that span the conflict’s Western Front, Eastern Front, and Pacific Theater. The Miracle of Dunkirk: The definitive account of the evacuation of 338,000 British and French soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk. Based on interviews with hundreds of survivors and masterfully woven together into a cinematic portrait, The Miracle of Dunkirk captures a pivotal moment when the outcome of World War II hung in the balance. “Stunning . . . The difference between the Lord technique and that of any number of academic historians is the originality of his reportage” (The New York Times). Enemy at the Gates: New York Times bestseller and the inspiration for the 2001 film starring Joseph Fiennes and Jude Law. The siege of Stalingrad lasted five months, one week, and three days. Nearly two million men and women died, and Germany’s 6th Army was completely destroyed. Considered by many historians to be the turning point of World War II in Europe, the Soviet Army’s victory foreshadowed Hitler’s downfall and the rise of a communist superpower. Crafted from five years of exhaustive research and interviews with hundreds of survivors, Enemy at the Gates is “probably the best single work on the epic battle of Stalingrad . . . An unforgettable and haunting reading experience” (Cornelius Ryan, author of The Longest Day). Guadalcanal Diary: #1 New York Times bestseller and the basis for the 1943 film starring Anthony Quinn and Richard Conte. Volunteer combat correspondent Richard Tregaskis was one of two journalists to witness the invasion of Guadalcanal, the first major Allied offensive against Japanese forces and the first time in history that a combined air, land, and sea assault had ever been attempted. Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the literary events of its time,” Guadalcanal Diary is “a superb example of war reporting at its best” (Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down).

Mit dem dritten Band der "Inferno"-Reihe schließt Will Berthold seine Trilogie über den Zweiten Weltkrieg ab, in der er auf der Grundlage von Augenzeugenberichten, Divisions- und Regimentschroniken, privaten Tagebucheinträgen und renommierten internationalen Quellen die Ereignisse des Weltkriegs dem Leser hochinformativ und mitreißend vermittelt. Im dritten Teil seiner Trilogie beschwört der Autor die Geschehnisse der Jahre 1942 bis 1945 herauf, vom Kampf um Stalingrad bis hin zum Kriegsende 1945. Anhand von Einzelschicksalen beschreibt er den Schrecken und die Absurdität der unterschiedlichen Unternehmungen, atmosphärisch dicht und wahrheitsgetreu in der historischen Sache. Sowohl die Kämpfe des Deutschen Afrikakorps unter Rommel als auch die Landung der Amerikaner und Engländer in der Normandie und Italien, die Eroberung Berlins durch die Sowjetunion und die bedingungslose Kapitulation der Wehrmacht am 7. und 8. Mai 1945: Berthold beleuchtet als objektiver Berichterstatter sowohl den gut dokumentierten Ablauf als auch kaum bekannte Ereignisse eines beispiellosen Krieges. Will Berthold (1924–2000) war einer der kommerziell erfolgreichsten deutschen Schriftsteller und Sachbuchautoren der Nachkriegszeit. Seine über 50 Romane und Sachbücher wurden in 14 Sprachen übersetzt und erreichten eine Gesamtauflage von über 20 Millionen. Berthold wuchs in Bamberg auf und wurde mit 18 Jahren Soldat. 1945 kam er vorübergehend in Kriegsgefangenschaft. Von 1945 bis 1951 war er Volontär und Redakteur der "Süddeutschen Zeitung", u. a. berichtete er über die Nürnberger Prozesse. Nachdem er einige Fortsetzungsromane in Zeitschriften veröffentlicht hatte, wurde er freier Schriftsteller und schrieb sogenannte "Tatsachenromane" und populärwissenschaftliche Sachbücher. Bevorzugt behandelte er in seinen Werken die Zeit des Nationalsozialismus und den Zweiten Weltkrieg sowie Themen aus den Bereichen Kriminalität und Spionage.

Here, for the first time in English, is an illuminating new German perspective on the decisive Blitzkrieg campaign of 1940. Karl-Heinz Frieser's account provides the definitive explanation for Germany's startling success and the equally surprising and rapid military collapse of France and Britain on the European continent. In a little over a month, Germany decisively defeated the Allies in battle, a task that had not been achieved in four years of brutal fighting during World War I. First published in 1995 as the official German history of the 1940 campaign in the west, the book goes beyond standard explanations to show that German victory was not inevitable and French defeat was not preordained. Contrary to the usual accounts of the campaign, Frieser illustrates that the military systems of both Germany and France were solid and that their campaign planning was sound. The key to victory or defeat, he argues, was the execution of operational plans—both preplanned and ad hoc—amid the eternal Clausewitzian combat factors of friction and the fog of war. Frieser shows why on the eve of the campaign the British and French leaders had good cause to be confident and why many German generals were understandably concerned that disaster was looming for them. This study explodes many of the myths concerning German Blitzkrieg warfare and the planning for the 1940 campaign. A groundbreaking new interpretation of a topic that has long interested students of military history, it is being published in cooperation with the Association of the U.S. Army
