FDR , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1972min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of today´s premier biographers has written a modern, comprehensive, indeed ultimate book on the epic life of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. This is a portrait painted in broad strokes and fine details. We see how Roosevelt´s restless energy, fierce intellect, personal magnetism, and ability to project effortless grace permitted him to master countless challenges throughout his life. Smith recounts FDR´s personal battles and also tackles head-on and in depth the numerous failures and miscues of Roosevelt´s political career. Summing up Roosevelt´s legacy, Smith gives us the clearest picture yet of how this quintessential Knickerbocker aristocrat became the common man´s president. The result is a powerful account that adds fresh perspectives and draws profound conclusions about a man whose story is widely known but not well understood. Written for the general reader and scholars alike, FDR is a stunning biography in every way worthy of its subject. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Cashman.

1972 - A Saga of Change , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

1972 - A Saga of Change is not a historical novel; it is fiction based on some events in India, around 1972. Every war or large scale revolution accelerates social change. This novel attempts to study the social and attitudinal changes that occurred in an Indian region, close to Indo-Pak border, by considering changes that occurred in some typical students and residents of a town close to the border. Jahnavi, Mita, Tridev, Lokesh, Niranjan and Sailaja were college mates and friends. Niranjan and Sailaja loved each other but because they respected the social differences between them, they reconciled themselves to the societal norms. Sailaja married Tripurantak. Lokesh was a Harijan; he loved Jahnavi secretly but could not hope for anything beyond friendship. Jahnavi was intimate with both Tridev and Lokesh. During the story, a change of heart occurs in Niranjan´s father, Ashutosh who appoints Bharatram, a Harijan in his nursing home. War started with the Pakistan´s attempted attack on Indian air fields in 1972. Lokesh recruited himself into the army. So did Tridev, after convincing his parents. Both were sent on active duty as members of the same unit, the very next day. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chiquito Crasto.

Ambassadörsmord: Nordisk Kriminalkrönika 1972, ...
9,95 € *

Under senare år har det blivit alltmer vanligt att personer, knutna till ambassader och konsulat på olika platser i världen, blivit utsatta för våldsbrott. Brotten har i de flesta fall haft politisk bakgrund. Man trodde kanske att vi skulle vara förskonade från dylika brott, men vi har i Sverige haft ett flertal ockupationer av främmande makters ambassader och konsulat, dock utan att allvarligare våldsbrott förekommit fram till den 7 april 1971, då den jugoslaviske ambassadören Vladimir Rolovic mördades inne på jugoslaviska ambassaden i Stockholm.Nordisk Kriminalkrönika är ett historiskt verk. Berättelserna och samlingarna är uttryck för den samtid som de skrevs i, och kan i enstaka fall ha föråldrat eller kontroversiellt innehåll. Eventuellt stötande material är inte uttryck för förlagets hållning. 1. Swedish. Sebastian Karlsson. http://samples.audible.de/bk/lind/005847/bk_lind_005847_sample.mp3.

En semesteridyll får ett ovälkommet besök av en väska som innehåller en tragedi. Det är augusti 1969 och semestertid med tillfälle till bad och segling, avkoppling och tid utan stress. Morgonen den 7 augusti 1969 strålar solen från en nästan molnfri himmel. Två dykare är denna morgon i båt på färd från Lysekil till Grundsund på Skaftölandet öster om Gåsö. Under båtfärden får de plötsligt se en väska flyta i vattnet. Intresset hos dem väcks. Vrakgods har alltid intresserat kustfolk. De styr mot väskan. De finner att väskan är omvirad med en kätting och de känner en äcklig, söt lukt från väskan. Deras nyfikenhet växer och bogserar väskan in till stranden. Men när väskan väl öppnas förvandlas deras nyfikenhet till fasa, för inuti hittar de kvarlevorna av en styckad kvinnokropp.Nordisk Kriminalkrönika är ett historiskt verk.

1972. The Munich Olympics. Palestinian members of the Black September group murder 11 Israeli athletes. Nine hundred million people watch the crisis unfold on television, witnessing a tragedy that inaugurates the modern age of terror. Back in Israel, Prime Minister Golda Meir vows to track down those responsible and, in Menachem Begin´s words, ´´run these criminals and murderers off the face of the earth´´. A secret Mossad unit is mobilized, a list of targets drawn up. Thus begins the Israeli response, a mission that unfolds not over months but over decades. The Mossad has never spoken about this operation. No one has known the real story. Until now. In this riveting account, Aaron Klein peels back the layers of myth and misinformation about the ´´shadow war´´ against Black September and other terrorist groups. 1. Language: English.

Set against the backdrop of the turbulent late 1960s and early 1970s, this compelling audiobook provides the first comprehensive history of the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, notorious for the abduction of Israeli Olympians by Palestinian terrorists and the hostages´ tragic deaths after a botched rescue mission by the German police. Drawing on a wealth of newly available sources from the time, eminent historian David Clay Large explores the 1972 festival in all its ramifications. He interweaves the political drama surrounding the Games with the athletic spectacle in the arena of play, itself hardly free of controversy. Writing with flair and an eye for telling detail, Large brings to life the stories of the indelible characters who epitomized the Games. Key figures range from the city itself, the visionaries who brought the Games to Munich against all odds, and of course to the athletes themselves, obscure and famous alike. With the Olympic movement in constant danger of terrorist disruption, and with the fortieth anniversary of the 1972 tragedy upon us in 2012, the Munich story is more timely than ever. 1.

In 1972 a North Vietnamese offensive of more than 30,000 men and one hundred tanks smashed into South Vietnam and raced to capture Saigon. All that stood in their way was a small band of 6,800 South Vietnamese (ARVN) soldiers and militiamen, and a handful of American advisors with U.S. air support, guarding An Loc, a town sixty miles north of Saigon and on the main highway to it. This depleted army, outnumbered and outgunned, stood its ground and fought to the end and succeeded. Against all expectations, the ARVN beat back furious assaults from three North Vietnamese divisions, supported by artillery and armored regiments, during three months of savage fighting. 1.
