Download Die kranken Habsburger: Befunde und Befindlichkeiten einer by Hans Bankl PDF

By Hans Bankl

Nach dem großen Erfolg seines Buches "Der Pathologe weiß alles ... aber zu spät" setzt sich der stets zu einem Bonmot bereite Hans Bankl hier mit Österreichs liebster Familie auseinander: den Habsburgern. In seinem unerschöpflichen Fundus an Krankengeschichten, Autopsieberichten und medizinischen Anekdoten über berühmte Persönlichkeiten hat Hans Bankl natürlich auch so manche Köstlichkeit zu diesem Thema parat. Der Bogen spannt sich von Rudolf IV., dem Schwindler, und Friedrich III., der mit seinem "AEIOU" auch als Quizmaster in die Geschichte einging, über Gepflogenheiten im Hause der "stattlichen Landesmutter" Maria Theresia und die erotischen Eskapaden der Isabella von Bourbon-Parma bis zur Pedanterie Kaiser Franz Josephs und der tragischen Persönlichkeit Kronprinz Rudolfs. Kurze Geschichten und knappe Porträts, schrille Anekdoten und bemerkenswerte Zitate sind es, mit denen der Autor ein ungewöhnliches, ein wenig desprektierliches, aber doch liebevoll koloriertes Bild einer Familie zeichnet, deren Schicksale auch heute noch die Gemüter bewegen.

Download The Wehrmacht: History, Myth, Reality by Wolfram Wette PDF

By Wolfram Wette

This ebook is a profound reexamination of the function of the German military, the Wehrmacht, in global conflict II. until eventually very lately, the traditional tale avowed that the standard German soldier in international battle II was once a great soldier, precise from Hitler's rapacious SS troops, and never an companion to the massacres of civilians. Wolfram Wette, a preeminent German army historian, explodes the parable of a ''clean'' Wehrmacht with devastating readability.

This ebook finds the Wehrmacht's long-standing prejudices opposed to Jews, Slavs, and Bolsheviks, ideals that predated the prophecies of Mein Kampf and the paranoia of nationwide Socialism. even though the sixteen-million-member German military is usually portrayed as a sufferer of Nazi mania, we come to determine that from 1941 to 1944 those squaddies have been completely eager about the bad detoxing of Russia and jap Europe. Wette compellingly files Germany's long term training of its military for a race struggle deemed essential to defend the country's destiny; global struggle II was once in simple terms the achievement of those plans, on a formerly incredible scale.

This sober indictment of thousands of German squaddies reaches past the Wehrmacht's complicity to check how German lecturers and usual electorate kept away from confronting this tough fact at war's finish. Wette indicates how atrocities opposed to Jews and others have been hid and clean upd, and historical past rewritten. just recently has the German public undertaken a reevaluation of this revered nationwide institution--a painful yet valuable procedure if we're to actually understand how the Holocaust used to be conducted and the way we've come to appreciate it.
