The dramatic story of the Nazis’ 1941 attempt to take Murmansk, including firsthand accounts of the action on the front line. In the early summer of 1941, German mountain soldiers under the command of General Eduard Dietl set out from northern Norway up through Finland to the Russian border. Operation Silberfuchs was underway. The northernmost section of the Eastern Front would ensure Hitler supplies of nickel from Finnish mines and bring the strategically important port city of Murmansk under German control. The roadless rocky terrain and extreme weather created major challenges for the German troop movements. Despite this, Dietl’s men made quick gains on his Russian foe, and they came closer to Murmansk. Despite repeated warnings of a German attack, Stalin had failed to mobilize, and the British hesitated to come to the rescue of the Red Army. But while the weather conditions steadily worsened, the Russians’ resistance increased. Three bloody efforts to force the river Litza were repulsed, and the offensive would develop into a nightmare for the inadequately equipped German soldiers. In an exciting and authoritative narrative based on previously unpublished material, Alf Reidar Jacobsen describes the heavy fighting that would lead to Hitler’s first defeat on the Eastern Front. With firsthand accounts of the fighting on the front line, this is a dramatic new account of a forgotten but bloody episode of World War II.

Hers was the archetypal tale of the ugly duckling who with sheer willpower and courage of conviction transformed herself into the most beautiful of swans. Maria Calogeropoulos, the shy awkward daughter of Greek immigrants, rose like a shooting star to become the greatest operatic diva this century. By applying the experiences and emotions of her own troubled life, Callas was able to climb inside the skin of each of her heroines and bring these often wretched women to life in a unique way. Yet Callas's greatest role was herself, the temperamental diva whose tantrums and walkouts were almost as sensational as her entrances, the consumate professional who had no patience with time-wasters or second-raters, the voluptuous siren whose ability to seduce brought her a series of relationships which were destined to be doomed: Oscar, the enemy soldier so cruelly wrenched from her; Rossi-Lemeni and Mangliveras, the opera stars who used her, only to find the tables turned on themselves; Meneghini, the man who fashioned her career and married her, only to discover he could not tame the tigress; Visconti, Bernstein and Pasolini, homosexuals she attempted to 'cure', and the greatest love of her life, Aristotle Onassis, whose death set her on a rapid downward spiral.
