The Year of Stalingrad 1946 [Hardcover]
The Year of Stalingrad 1946 [Hardcover]
by Werth Alexander
Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars Also some pages were duplicated and I had only read 26 pages but with great difficulty! I am terribly disappointed, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of the printing is dreadful, I think because the too much ink was absorbed by the paper thus causing smudginess. Also some pages were duplicated and I had only read 26 pages but with great difficulty! I am terribly disappointed.
The only good comment I can make is that the delivery and packing was first class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hubris, Nemesis and Catharsis!, 13 May 2013

This review is from: Jew Suss (Hardcover)
Excellently written; Feuchtwanger paints a marvellous picture of mittel Europe in the 18th century and the machinations of courtesans, princes, financiers and the rest!
I imagine the jew, Suss as the first Rothchild.
Interestingly the Nazis made a propoganda film of the same name where Jew Suss is vilified as base, detestable and loathsome. Whereas for me, Feuchtwanger shows a nobility of purpose and culture in Suss and of Judaism generally.
The Nazis banned the book and Feuchtwanger was fortunate to escape to the USA where he wrote Josephus, the Jewish War, which I heartily recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars A roller coaster ride!, 13 May 2013

This is a non stop page turner. Historically accurate but written in a, for me, "Boys Own" rip roaring way. Very gripping and left me with a lot of "what if?" questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars San Antonio, 22 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me this was purely a sentimental journey.
It was the first movie I remember, I'm closing in on 70 and when it was released my mother took me to see it back in the mid/late forties when I fell in love with Alexis Smith singing "some sunday morning"
I had thought that one of the villains was Victor Jory but maybe that was in some other western.
Anyway memory does play tricks on one but not, in my case, when it came to Alexis sassying in the saloon. Priceless!
