Noch acht Wochen, nachdem die Invasion der Alliierten tatsächlich schon stattgefunden hat, warten 22 deutsche Divisionen auf den vermeintlichen Hauptangriff. Vergeblich. In die Irre geführt hat sie »Garbo«: Als einer ihrer wichtigsten Quellen in England hat der Agent die Deutschen überzeugt, dass die Landung erst noch bei Calais bevorstehe. Hitler werden Pujols Meldungen direkt vorgelegt, und die Deutschen vertrauen ihm weiter. Was die deutsche Führung nicht weiß: Pujol ist der wichtigste Doppelagent des britischen Geheimdienstes und spielt eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Operation »Fortitude«, dem Täuschungsmanöver der Alliierten, mit dem die Deutschen über den Zeitpunkt und den Ort der Landung der Alliierten in die Irre geführt werden sollten. Die Briten nennen Pujol »Garbo«, in Anklang an die Schauspielerin Greta Garbo. Aber wer ist dieser größte Schauspieler des Krieges wirklich?

Auf 250 Seiten einmal durch 2000 Jahre deutscher Geschichte: Überzeugend und souverän führt James Hawes von den alten Römern bis in die Gegenwart. Eine große Tour durch die Jahrhunderte, die in einer leidenschaftlichen Hommage an die Bundesrepublik endet. Der Sieg gegen die Römer im Teutoburger Wald, die barbarische Grausamkeit des Dreißigjährigen Kriegs, der Aufstieg des militaristischen Preußens im 18. Jahrhundert — wie Blitzlichter scheinen diese historischen Ereignisse in James Hawes’ fulminantem Parforceritt durch die deutsche Geschichte auf. Die alles beherrschende Frage, die sich wie ein roter Faden durch die Seiten zieht: Gehört das Herzstück Europas zum Westen oder zum Osten? Für Hawes ist klar, dass dieses Land zum Westen zählt. Die Bundesrepublik, so wie wir sie kennen, sieht er in der Tradition des wahren, historischen Deutschlands, dem Staatshörigkeit, puritanischer Eifer und narben gesichtiger Militarismus stets fremd waren. Hawes ist sich sicher: Deutschland ist heute »Europas größte Hoffnung«.

Eugene B. Sledge diente als Soldat im 3. Bataillon, 5. Kompanie der berühmten 1. US-Marineinfanteriedivision – der ältesten, ruhmreichsten und größten aktiven Division des US Marine Corps. Im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde der 20-Jährige an die Front im Pazifik geschickt, wo er an den Gefechten der amerikanischen Armee gegen die Japaner um Peleliu und Okinawa teilnahm. In diesem Buch beschreibt Sledge auf klare und erschütternd nüchterne Weise die Erfahrungen eines Marines an der Front im Pazifik. Die Grausamkeit und Brutalität des Krieges sind darin ebenso festgehalten wie das Gefühl aufrichtiger Kameradschaft, schonungslose Schilderungen wüster Kämpfe sowie rührende Momentaufnahmen am Rande des Geschehens. Ein einzigartiges Dokument des Schreckens und ein weltbekannter Klassiker der Kriegsliteratur.
