            THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER The most anticipated spy thriller of 2020, from the award-winning author of Corpus. Autumn 1941. The war is going badly for Britain and its allies. If Hitler is to be stopped, a new weapon is desperately needed. In Cambridge, professor Tom Wilde is app...roached by an American intelligence officer who claims to know of such a weapon - one so secret even Hitler himself isn't aware of its existence. If Wilde can smuggle the package out of Germany, the Third Reich will surely fall. But it is only when he is deep behind enemy lines that Wilde discovers why the Nazis are so desperate to prevent the 'package' falling into Allied hands. And as ruthless killers hunt him through Europe, a treacherous question hangs over the mission: if Hitler's secret will win them the war, why is Wilde convinced it must remain hidden? Dramatic, intelligent, and utterly compelling, Hitler's Secret is the Sunday Times bestselling spy thriller of 2020 from the award-winning author of Corpus and Nucleus - perfect for readers of Robert Harris, C J Sansom and Joseph Kanon. _____________________________ Praise for Rory Clements: 'Political polarisation, mistrust and simmering violence' The Times 'A standout historical novel and spy thriller' Daily Express 'Enjoyable, bloody and brutish' Guardian 'A dramatic, twisty thriller' Daily Mail 'A colourful history lesson . . . exciting narrative twists' Sunday Telegraph

            When a young British man asks his German grandfather what it was like to fight on the wrong side of the war, the question is initially met with irritation and silence. But after the old man's death, a long letter to his grandson is found among his things. That letter is this book.... In it, he relates the experiences of an unlikely few days on the Eastern Front - at a moment when he knows not only that Germany is going to lose the war, but that it deserves to. He writes about his everyday experience amid horror, confusion and great bravery, and he asks himself what responsibility he bears for the circumstances he found himself in. As he tries to find an answer he can live with, we hear from his grandson what kind of man he became in the seventy years after the war. We Germans is a fundamentally human novel that grapples with the most profound of questions about guilt, shame and responsibility - questions that remain as live today as they have always been.

            Tiu ci romano de Vladimir Bogomolov (1924-2003), unue publikigita en 1974, prezentas per si siaspecan militan detektivromanon, kies intrigo konsistas en sercado kaj kapto de germanaj spionoj fare de la sovetia kontrauspiona servo en la 1944-a jaro en cefronta zono en okcidenta Be...lorusio. Tamen gia enhavo estas multe pli vasta, kiel rimarkis elstara rusa verkisto kaj poeto K. Simonov: Tio estas romano ne pri la milita kontrauspiona servo. Tio estas romano pri la sovetia stata kaj milita masino de la kvardek kvara jaro kaj pri tipaj homoj de tiu tempo . La romano siatempe estis taksita kiel nova rigardo al la milito . Cetere, la autoro mem servis tiutempe en skoltaj trupoj kaj priskribis cion kun bona scio de la afero, inklude profesian slangon. Krome, la romano sendube havas altan artan valoron, gi estis tradukita al pli ol tridek lingvoj kaj reeldonita pli ol cent fojojn.

            Little Anton is a gripping historical novel series that discloses covert technological inventions and the prominent leaders who exploited them during the turbulent years leading up to WWII and the Battle of Norway in 1940. Part love story and part dark satire, the book masterfull...y interweaves a fictional adventure within factual reportage, revealing in greater detail why Adolf Hitler tasked his personal hero Professor Ferdinand Porsche and his brilliant engineering mind to build the world's fastest, almost invincible racecars and potent military machines. The book tracks the life of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche while Hitler rises to power. Porsche and his family are pacifists, but like many industrialist families, they get caught up in Germany's economic miracle during the Great Depression and its aftermath. With Hitler's patronage, Porsche becomes Germany's heralded Reich Designer, creating the Volkswagen Beetle and Auto Union's futuristic Grand Prix racing cars, which later evolved into the Audi car brand after WWII. Along with Dr. Porsche, the central characters are the fictional Lady Beatrice Sunderland (Bea), an irreverent, naughty British aristocrat, and Lutz Becker, a dashing young Bavarian racecar driver from quite humble origins. These two madcap star-crossed opposites intertwine when WWII breaks out, the attraction as inevitable as the fearsome conflict itself. Lady Bea, a cynical, freewheeling, cold-hearted daredevil pilot who emulates feminist aviatrices Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson, and Beryl Markham, is the daughter of Lord Briggs Sunderland, a tortured veteran of The Great War and close friend and confidant of Winston Churchill, Bea's maternal granduncle. Bea undergoes harsh SIS training to become a British spy and is sent to Germany to gain intelligence on clandestine German rearmament. Lutz Becker, a young member of the National Socialist Motorcorps (NSKK) motorcycle division, gains Porsche's patronage and becomes a pro auto racer in international Grand Pri

            The Gun Garden (EPUB ebook – Digital original)

            By Beaty, David

            In the unpredictable maelstrom of war, heroes can come from the unlikeliest places...Malta, 1942 - a thousand miles from friends, isolated, besieged, and slowly being starved into surrender... Into that hopeless situation fly two Wellington aircraft equipped with long-range rada...r. One is captained by a dedicated, veteran RAF pilot. The other by Peter Forrester, a hastily trained, carefree twenty-one-year-old. Their role is to find enemy convoys proceeding at night from Italy to Africa, and to lead a tiny naval force of cruiser and destroyer through the darkness to the unsuspecting target. The fate of a nation depends on their success... Climaxed by the mounting crescendo of a night battle at sea, this is a delicately balanced novel, caught between extremes of love and war, between guns and gardens.
