Israel is a small and relatively young country, but its turbulent history has placed it squarely at the centre of the world stage for most of this century. For two millennia the Jews, dispersed all over the world, prayed for a return to Zion. Until the nineteenth century, that dream seemed a fantasy, but then a secular Zionist movement was born and soon the initial trickle of Jewish immigrants to Palestine turned into a flood as Jews fled persecution in Europe. From these beginnings, Martin Gilbert traces the events and personalities that would lead to the sudden, dramatic declaration of Statehood in May 1948. From that point on, Israel's history has been dominated by conflict: Suez, the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the Lebanon and the Intifada. Using contemporary documents and eyewitness accounts, drawing on his own intimate knowledge of the country and its people, Martin Gilbert weaves together a seamless, page-turning history of a powerful and proud nation....

In The Routledge Atlas of the Second World War, Martin Gilbert graphically charts the war’s political, military, economic and social history through 257 illuminating maps. The atlas covers all the major events from the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 to the defeat of Japan in August 1945.

Focusing on the human – and inhuman – aspects of the war, The Routledge Atlas of the Second World War includes examination of:

  • military, naval and air campaigns on all the war fronts
  • the war on land, at sea and in the air
  • the economic and social aspects of the war
  • the global nature of the war, in armed combat and in suffering
  • the impact of the war on civilians, both under occupation, and as deportees and refugees
  • the aftermath of the war: post-war political and national boundaries; war graves; and the human cost of the war on every continent.

This paperback edition includes several updates to existing maps, as well as ten new maps, specially drawn for this edition. The new maps include examinations of Japanese- American and African- American soldiers serving with the United States Army, British women special agents, Belgium at War, and the German occupation of the Channel Islands.

"The Allied landings in 1944 had all the prospects for disaster. Churchill thought he would be woken up to be told of massive casualties. Eisenhower prepared a somber broadcast announcing that the enterprise had failed.

The specter of failure was always present. After a failed landing the Nazi regime would have regained the ascendant. New, terrifying bombs and rockets were ready to be launched. Long-distance submarines were in the final stage of development. The last million Jews of Europe were listed for deportation and death.

Failure at Normandy could have given Hitler the chance of continuing to rule western Europe, particularly if the United States, bloodied and defeated in Normandy, had decided-after two and a half years of focusing on Europe-to turn all its energies to the ever-growing demands of the Pacific, leaving Europe to its own devices. Had that happened, I doubt if I would have been alive to write this book, or free to express my opinions without fear of arrest."

The photographs and cartoon portraits in this volume, collected by Martin Gilbert over several years, vividly portrait the variety and span of Winston Churchill's life. More than a third of the photographs and most of the cartoons came from Sir Winston's own albums, appearing nowhere else. Displayed here, they are supported by a rich historical commentary, often in Churchill's own words or those of this contemporaries. The result is a unique photographic record, as remarkable for its completeness as for the many fascinating pictures it contains.

This is a very thorough account of the experience of the Jews of Europe during World War II. It is virtually a day-by-day account, in men and women's own words, of the horrifying events of the Holocaust - the Nazi attempt to exterminate the Jewish race....

The complex and often turbulent history of Russia over the course of the last 2000 years is brought to life in a series of 177 maps. It covers not only the expansion of Russia wars and its war but also provides a wealth of detail on topics such as its history of famine and anarchism to the growth of its naval strength. From 800 BC through the fall of the Soviet Union to the present day, this indispensable cartographic guide to Russian history covers:
* War and conflict: from the triumph of the Goths between 200 and 400 BC to the defeat of Germany at the end of the Second World War, the end of the Cold War and the war in Chechnya.
* Politics: from the rise of Moscow in the Middle Ages to revolution, the fall of the monarchy and the collapse of communism.
* Industry, economics and transport: from the Trans-Siberian Railway between 1891 and 1917 to the Virgin Lands Campaign and contemporary oil and gas exploitation.
* Society, trade and culture: from peasant discontent and labor camps (gulags) to the geographical distribution of ethnic Russians and the Russian arms trade....

How does he assess the information that is brought to him? How does his personal or political philosophy, or a moral sense, sustain him? How does he draw inspiration from those around him? How does he deal with setbacks and disasters? In this brilliant close-up look at Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War, Gilbert gets to the heart of the trials and struggles that have confronted the world's most powerful leaders, even up to current politicians such as George Bush and Tony Blair.

Basing the book on his intimate knowledge of Churchill's private and official papers, Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill’s official biographer, looks at the public figure and wartime propaganda, to reveal a very human, sensitive, and often tormented man, who nevertheless found the strength to lead his nation forward from the darkest and most dangerous of times....
