This book tells the little-known stories of Jewish soldiers who served in the Jewish Legions during World War I. Three all-Jewish battalions formed in the British army as part of the Allies' Middle East campaign, recruiting soldiers from the United States, Canada, England, and Argentina. Drawing on diaries, memoirs and letters, the book follows their journey at sea through unrestricted submarine warfare; by trains and trucks through Europe, Egypt, and Palestine; and their battlefield experiences. The authors show how these Yiddish-speaking young men forged a new kind of soldier identity with unique Jewish features, as well as an evolving sense of nationalism.

The mud-filled, blood-soaked trenches of the Low Countries and North-Eastern Europe were essential battlegrounds during the First World War, but the war reached many other corners of the globe, and events elsewhere significantly affected its course. Covering the twelve months of 1916, eminent historian Keith Jeffery uses twelve moments from a range of locations and shows how they reverberated around the world. As well as discussing better-known battles such as Gallipoli, Verdun and the Somme, Jeffery examines Dublin, for the Easter Rising, East Africa, the Italian front, Central Asia and Russia, where the killing of Rasputin exposed the internal political weakness of the country's empire. And, in charting a wide range of wartime experience, he studies the 'intelligence war', naval engagements at Jutland and elsewhere, as well as the political consequences that ensued from the momentous US presidential election. Using an extraordinary range of military, social and cultural sources, and relating the individual experiences on the ground to wider developments, these are the stories lost to history, the conflicts that spread beyond the sphere of Europe and the moments that transformed the war.

Most film buffs know that Citizen Kane was based on the life of publisher William Randolph Hearst. But few are aware that key characters in films like Double Indemnity, Cool Hand Luke, Jaws, Rain Man, A Few Good Men and Zero Dark Thirty were inspired by actual persons. This survey of à clef characters covers a selection of fictionalized personalities, beginning with the Silent Era. The landmark lawsuit surrounding Rasputin and the Empress (1932) introduced disclaimers in film credits, assuring audiences that characters were not based on real people—even when they were. Entries cover screen incarnations of Wyatt Earp, Al Capone, Bing Crosby, Amelia Earhart, Buster Keaton, Howard Hughes, Janis Joplin and Richard Nixon, along with the inspirations behind perennial favorites like Charlie Chan and Indiana Jones.

In einem der erfolgreichsten Werke über Albert Einstein schildert der Autor den Lebensweg dieses bedeutendsten Wissenschaftlers des 20. Jahrhunderts. Er stellt dabei den Menschen Einstein in den Vordergrund und legt somit einen für Einstein-Biographien neuen und ungewöhnlichen Schwerpunkt auf dessen Persönlichkeit statt auf seine äußere Rolle als Forscher. Aus den Stimmen zur englischen Originalausgabe: "Denis Brians beeindruckendes Bild ... lässt unsere Anerkennung über Einsteins bahnbrechende Leistungen nur noch weiter wachsen" (The Washington Post) "Der beste Zugang ... hervorragendes Bild" (The Times, London) "Ein faszinierender, kurzweilig zu lesender und exakt recherchierter Zugang zu Einstein als Mensch." (Physics World) "Ein tiefgründiger und fesselnder Zugang zu einem Menschen, den ich das Vergnügen hatte zu kennen und zu schätzen." (George Wald, Nobelpreisträger)
