La dernière bataille by Stephen Harding Summary

Mai 1945, Hitler est mort et le Troisième Reich vit ses dernières heures sur des décombres fumants. À quelques jours de la fin de la guerre, aucun GI ne veut être le dernier homme mort au combat contre les nazis. Mais c’est sans compter le capitaine Jack Lee. Uniforme kaki froissé et cigare aux dents, lui et une poignée de ses hommes ont une dernière mission : sauver quatorze prisonniers français détenus par des forcenés SS dans une forteresse du Tyrol. Là, au château d'Itter, dans les Alpes Autrichiennes, reconfiguré par Albert Speer en prison de luxe pour détenus V.I.P., des politiques et des militaires de haut rang français sont prisonniers d'un groupe de SS déterminés à lutter jus-qu’au bout. Parmi ces prisonniers que les nazis comptent utiliser comme otages ou monnaie d’échange, les anciens présidents du Conseil ennemis Paul Reynaud et Édouard Daladier, l’ancien Président de la République Albert Lebrun, la sœur aînée de Charles de Gaulle, Marie-Agnès Cailleau, ou encore le Ministre aux sports de Vichy et fameux tennisman Jean Borotra. Mais aussi le Général Gamelin, chef d’état-major des armées au début de la guerre, son successeur le général Maxime Weygand, et Léon Jouhaux, le secrétaire général de la CGT dissoute par le régime de Vichy. Stephen Harding narre avec beaucoup d’esprit la cohabitation difficile, mais rendue nécessaire par les circonstances, de ces otages de marque aux convictions politiques divergentes. Leur salut viendra étonnamment d’un jeune américain, le Capitaine Jack Lee et d’un major de la Wehrmacht. Fondés sur d’importantes recherches historiques, des mémoires et les témoi-gnages de quatre survivants de l’époque, La Dernière Bataille est le récit inédit de cet ultime baroud de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, mais aussi la plus étonnante et improbable alliance entre Américains, Allemands et Français. A propos de l'auteur Stephen Harding est un journaliste américain, spécialiste des questions mili-taires.

The Last Battle by Peter Hart Summary

By August 1918, the outcome of the Great War was not in doubt: the Allies would win. But what was unclear was how this defeat would play out - would the Germans hold on, prolonging the fighting deep into 1919, with the loss of hundreds of thousands more young lives, or could the war be won in 1918? In The Last Battle, Peter Hart, author of Gallipoli and The Great War, and oral historian at the Imperial War Museum, brings to life the dramatic final weeks of the war, as men fought to secure victory, with survival seemingly only days, or hours away. Drawing on the experience of both generals and ordinary soldiers, and dwelling with equal weight on strategy, tactics and individual experience, this is a powerful and detailed account of history's greatest endgame.

The Last Battle by Cornelius Ryan Summary

The Battle for Berlin was the final struggle of World War II in the European theatre, the last offensive against Hitler's Third Reich, which devastated one of Europe's historic capitals and brought an end to the Nazi regime. It lasted more than two weeks across April -- May 1945, and was one of the bloodiest and most pivotal episodes of the war, one which would play a part in determining the shape of international politics for decades to come. THE LAST BATTLE is a story of brutal extremes, of stunning military triumph alongside the stark conditions that the civilians of Berlin experienced in the face of the Allied assault. It is history at its best, a masterful illumination of the effects of war on the lives of individuals, and one of the enduring works on World War II.

Two Escaping the Last Battle by Brunhild Rajaniemi Summary

There are many things that you may have put up with, endured, allowed, and permitted that God never ordained. Matthew 16:19 says, I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever you bind, that is, declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be already bound in heaven; and whatsoever you loose on earth, declare lawful, must be what is already loosed in heaven. (Amplified) Wrong relationships can cause these same curses that we have been delivered from to be ushered right back into our lives. Surround yourself with people who will come into agreement with you and celebrate you. We need also to weed out the users and abusers of our finances. Either people who have used you will repent, and try to make it right with you or throw a tantrum, give you a hard-luck story and go right back to usury. You cannot continue to remain in situations that causes you to compromise your integrity, your calling, and put into jeopardy your divine destiny in life. What is Satan using as a bargaining tool in order to gain entrance into your life? Is he using money to gain entrance? Sex? Is he promising you fame? Don't negotiate with him, because you will always lose playing games with the devil. The people who will celebrate you are those who are ordained to be a part of your life and ministry! No one who is invited to your celebration is sad or jealous because you are being blessed. Everyone at your celebration party has brought you a gift, and no one is empty handed. "How to Walk in Manifestation" is a powerful revelation that will change the course of your life.

The Last Battle by Tito Faraci Summary

The sheen of Hollywood's Rome is blasted away for this gritty, unflinching tale of an unsung commander in Caesar's Legions. In 52 BCE Gaul, Caesar's forces lay siege to the barbarian stronghold of Alesia in one of the biggest battles in history; nearby, another barbarian army prepares to attack the Romans from behind, led by the rebel Cammius, who once fought for Rome. Caesar dispatches his greatest general, Caius Rodius, to track through the untamed countryside, and bring back the rebel's head. Who better to hunt Cammius, than the man who taught him the very skills he now uses to defy Rome? Torn between duty and friendship, Rodius questions whether the Roman 'road of stone and blood' is a path he still wants to follow. Story by TITO FARACI (Diabolik, Spider-Man: The Secret of Glass, The Devil and Captain America), art by DAN BRERETON (NOCTURNALS, The Punisher, God-Sized Thor, Red Sonja).

Okinawa by Roy E. Appleman,James M. Burns,Russell A. Gugeler,John Stevens Summary

The story of one of the bloodiest battles in history, told by World War II veterans-turned-historians. As the war in the Pacific progressed, the United States and Allied troops fought the Japanese in places like New Guinea and the Marshall Islands as they made their way closer to Japan’s mainland. Okinawa was the intended base for the planned invasion of Japan. The Japanese, however, were entrenched, and the US and Allied forces found themselves in one of the bloodiest battles of World War II. More than 100,000 Japanese soldiers, 50,000 US and Allied troops, and 100,000 civilians lost their lives during this epic 82-day battle. Okinawa offers eyewitness accounts by four US Army combat historians of Operation ICEBERG, the Ryukyu invasion, and more. From their stories, faithfully reported here, learn how American soldiers softened the Japanese targets before invading the Ryukyus. With more than two hundred black-and-white photos, charts, and maps, Okinawa is the book for anyone who wants to know what the war in the Pacific was really like.
