Description

Informationen zum Autor A veteran of Israeli intelligence, Dr. DANNY ORBACH earned a B.A. in history and East Asian studies from Tel Aviv University, and a Ph.D. in history from Harvard University. Currently, he is a postdoctoral fellow in the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University, and a senior lecturer for history and East Asian studies in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. As a historian, commentator, and political blogger, he has published extensively on German, Japanese, Chinese, Israeli, and Middle Eastern history, with a special focus on military resistance, disobedience, rebellions, and political assassinations. His latest book, The Plots Against Hitler, is forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/Eamon Dolan Books. During the 2015-2016 academic years, he plans to complete a book manuscript on his dissertation and will begin his new research project on the Nanjing Massacre. Klappentext In 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. A year later, all parties but the Nazis had been outlawed, freedom of the press was but a memory, and Hitler's dominance seemed complete. Yet over the next few years, an unlikely clutch of conspirators emerged - soldiers, schoolteachers, politicians, diplomats, theologians, even a carpenter - who would try repeatedly to end the Fuhrer's genocidal reign. This dramatic and deeply researched book tells the full story of those noble, ingenious, and doomed efforts. This is history at its most suspenseful, as we witness secret midnight meetings, crises of conscience, and fierce debates among old friends about whether and how to dismantle Nazism, and the various plots themselves being devised and executed. Orbach's fresh research takes advantage of his singular skills as linguist and historian to offer profound insight into the conspirators' methods, motivations, fears, and hopes. Though we know how this story ends, we've had no idea until now how close it came - several times - to ending very differently. THE PLOTS AGAINST HITLER fundamentally alters our view of World War II and sheds tantalizing light on its darkest days. ...
