The Whisperers: Private Life in Stalin’s Russia
Drawing on a huge range of sources – letters, memoirs, conversations – Orlando Figes tells the story of how Russians tried to endure life under Stalin. Those who shaped the political system became, very frequently, its victims. Those who were its victims were frequently quite blameless. The Whisperers recreates the sort of maze in which Russians found themselves, where an unwitting wrong turn could either destroy a family or, perversely, later save it: a society in which everyone spoke in whispers – whether to protect themselves, their families, neighbours or friends – or to inform on them.

FREEDownload : Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945

Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945 by Charles Whiting
English | December 22, 2014 | ISBN: 0850525136 | ASIN: B00RD0UC94 | 190 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 3.5 MB
In the closing says of World War Two, German resistance to the Nazis was growing. This is the dramatic true story of one act of rebellion.

Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945
The Werewolves were formed in November 1944, having been recruited and trained by SS Police General Gutenberger.

A team of five men and a woman was chosen for "Operation Carnival", which was a plot to kill Franz Oppenhoff, the new mayor of Aachen, who the Germans saw as an American stool-pigeon and traitor.

‘Werewolf’ skilfully recreates the atmosphere of unease that prevailed on both sides during the final months of the Second World War.

‘Warewolf’ outdoes the best spy novel and demonstrates yet again that ‘fiction’ cannot hold a candle to ‘fact’ when coming from the pen of a master of Charles Whiting’s stature.

'A fascinating insight into the hidden war. I learned something new on every page.' – Tom Kasey, best-selling author of 'Trade Off'.

Charles Whiting is the author of numerous history books on the Second World War. Under the pen name of Leo Kessler he also wrote a series of best-selling military thrillers, including ‘Guns at Cassino’ and ‘Valley of the Assassins’.

The Drive on Moscow, 1941: Operation Taifun and Germany’s First Great Crisis of World War II (Audiobook)

The Drive on Moscow, 1941: Operation Taifun and Germany's First Great Crisis of World War II (Audiobook) By Niklas Zetterling, Anders Frankson, read by Dave Courvoisier
Unabridged edition 2013 | 8 hours and 49 mins | ISBN: n/a | ASIN: B00BW4CQHS | MP3 64 kbps | 242 MB
At the end of September 1941, more than a million German soldiers lined up along the frontline just 180 miles west of Moscow. They were well trained, confident, and had good reasons to hope that the war in the East would be over with one last offensive. Facing them was an equally large Soviet force, but whose soldiers were neither as well trained nor as confident. When the Germans struck, disaster soon befell the Soviet defenders. German panzer spearheads cut through enemy defenses and thrust deeply to encircle most of the Soviet soldiers on the approaches to Moscow. Within a few weeks, most of them marched into captivity, where a grim fate awaited them.

Despite the overwhelming initial German success, however, the Soviet capital did not fall. German combat units as well as supply transport were bogged down in mud caused by autumn rains. General Zhukov was called back to Moscow and given the desperate task to recreate defense lines west of Moscow. The mud allowed him time to accomplish this, and when the Germans again began to attack in November, they met stiffer resistance. Even so, they came perilously close to the capital, and if the vicissitudes of weather had cooperated, would have seized it. Though German units were also fighting desperately by now, the Soviet build-up soon exceeded their own.

The Drive on Moscow: Operation Taifun, 1941 is based on numerous archival records, personal diaries, letters, and other sources. It recreates the battle from the perspective of the soldiers as well as the generals. The battle, not fought in isolation, had a crucial role in the overall German strategy in the East, and its outcome reveals why the failure of the German assault on Moscow may well have been true turning point of World War II.

Niklas Zetterling is a researcher at the Swedish Defense College. Along with Anders Frankson he has previously written Kursk 1943: A Statistical Analysis and The Korsun Pocket: The Encirclement…
