The Potsdam Bluff , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 579min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

It´s 1945, and Stalin´s army stands poised to conquer all of Europe. The only way to stop him is for Truman to bluff him down. To make the bluff work, C.G. Brandt, America´s ultra-professional but very human spymaster, is forced to risk everything on Alex Lukas, an under-trained but bilingual secret agent. Lukas must escort a Soviet defector who will parachute into Bavaria with crucial information. But the defector´s plane crashes; there is a gorgeous Communist spy in the drop area; and Lukas can´t believe the amount of well-armed interest in his movements. Against all odds, he manages to get out with his skin intact. Then he´s given new orders: to proceed to New Mexico, to a place called Los Alamos, pick up a crate, and deliver it to the Moscow embassy. In the crate is the key to the great bluff - the biggest card in Harry Truman´s hand as he faces off with Joseph Stalin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Emerson.

Im Jahr 993 hinterließ Otto III. seiner Tante in einer Urkunde die Orte ´´Poztupimi et Geliti´´, wobei Poztupimi für Potsdam mit ´´unter den Eichen´´ übersetzt werden könnte. Erst 1317 wurde die Ortschaft urkundlich als Postamp erwähnt und bekam im Jahr 1345 das Stadtrecht. Der Große Kurfürst Friedrich Wilhelm verhalf der Stadt zu mehr Glanz und Bedeutung. Bis dahin war Potsdam oft verpfändet und kaum besiedelt. Später ließ der Soldatenkönig Friedrich Wilhelm I. die Soldatenbataillone nach Potsdam verlegen. Architektonisch prägte ab 1745 Friedrich der Große das Bild der Stadt. Er ließ Barockfassaden errichten und es entstand das Schloss Sanssouci. Eine Hörbuch-Reise in das sagenhafte Potsdam, bei der der Verlag die alte Tradition des Geschichtenerzählens aufleben lässt und sie mit dem modernen Medium Hörbuch verbindet. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Uve Teschner. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/jome/000023/bk_jome_000023_sample.mp3. Digitales Hörbuch im AAX Format.

9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Standing in history like a milestone marking the boundary between one era and the next, the Potsdam Conference brought together the leaders of the three major Allied powers - the United States, the Soviet Union, and the United Kingdom - for the last time at the end of World War II and at the threshold of the Cold War. A follow up to the Yalta Conference just five months earlier, Potsdam attempted to work out the contours of the postwar world. Though it came so shortly after Yalta, the Potsdam Conference also highlighted a turnover of leadership on the world stage. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who gave his nation hope in the darkest days of World War II, had suffered a stunning defeat at the hands of the Labor candidate Clement Attlee, who replaced him towards the end of the Conference. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt died prior to the meeting, leading to his replacement by the new president Harry S. Truman, a keen-minded pragmatist whose intense focus on America´s advantage contrasted with Roosevelt´s internationalism. Only General Secretary Josef Stalin, dictator of the Soviet Union, remained unchanged from the earlier summit. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

After Germany´s defeat in World War II, Europe lay in tatters. Millions of refugees were dispersed across the continent. Food and fuel were scarce. Britain was bankrupt while Germany had been reduced to rubble. In July 1945 Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin gathered in a quiet suburb of Berlin to negotiate a lasting peace - a peace that would finally put an end to the conflagration that had started in 1914, a peace under which Europe could be rebuilt. Award-winning historian Michael Neiberg brings the turbulent Potsdam Conference to life, vividly capturing the delegates´ personalities: Truman, trying to escape from the shadow of Franklin Roosevelt, who had died only months before; Churchill, bombastic and seemingly out of touch; Stalin, cunning and meticulous. For the first week, negotiations progressed relatively smoothly. But when the delegates took a recess for the British elections, Churchill was replaced - both as prime minster and as Britain´s representative at the conference - in an unforeseen upset by Clement Attlee, a man Churchill disparagingly described as ´´a sheep in sheep´s clothing´´. When the conference reconvened, the power dynamic had shifted dramatically, and the delegates struggled to find a new balance. Stalin took advantage of his strong position to demand control of Eastern Europe as recompense for the suffering experienced by the Soviet people and armies. The final resolutions of the Potsdam Conference, notably the division of Germany and the Soviet annexation of Poland, reflected the uneasy geopolitical equilibrium between East and West that would come to dominate the 20th century. As Neiberg expertly shows, the delegates arrived at Potsdam determined to learn from the mistakes their predecessors made in the Treaty of Versailles. But riven by tensions and dramatic debates over how to end the most recent war, they only dimly understood that their discussions of peace were giving birth to a new global conflic 1.

Separated by vast gulfs of political, cultural, and philosophical divergence, the three chief Allied nations of World War II - the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain - attempted to formulate a joint policy through a series of three conferences during and immediately after the conflict. The first meeting took place in Tehran in late 1943, while the fate of World War II still hung in the balance. The fate of World War II hung in the balance in 1943. On the Eastern Front, the opposed juggernauts of the Wehrmacht, army of Adolf Hitler´s Third Reich, and the Red Army, the military force of Josef Stalin´s Soviet Union, grappled in a nearly apocalyptic battle. Black smoke rose into the steppe air from burning vehicles strewing the landscape, while millions of men maneuvered, fought, and died in a series of brutal encounters. Meanwhile, the Western Allies succeeded in ousting the Germans from North Africa, then took Sicily with Operation Husky and landed in Italy. There, the tough, hardened warriors of the German military turned the Italian peninsula into a vast fortress; these seasoned fighters made the determined Anglo-American forces pay a bitter price for each mountain ridge, river crossing, and stony valley swept by cunningly-placed gun emplacements. Adolf Hitler´s Third Reich had scant time remaining when the ´´Big Three´´ met at the Yalta Conference in February 1945 to discuss the future of Germany, Europe, and the postwar world as a whole. 1.

Feldherr und Schöngeist, Aufklärer und Zuchtmeister - im Spannungsfeld seiner Persönlichkeit steht ´´Friedrich der Große´´ für Preußens Glorie.Als der junge Mann in Berlin 1740 als ´´Friedrich II.´´ den Königsthron besteigt, ist das für das barocke Europa eher ein unbedeutendes Randereignis. Der neue Herrscher des bettelarmen Preußens galt als eine von seinem Vater gebrochene Figur, dem Ränkespiel der Großmächte Österreich, Russland, Frankreich und England hilflos ausgeliefert. Doch dann gelangt in Österreich Maria Theresia an die Macht und Friedrich nutzt seine Chance: Er entreißt der Königin die wertvolle Provinz Schlesien und trotzt ganz Europa in drei blutigen Kriegen. Schon zu Lebzeiten nennen ihn die Zeitgenossen den ´´Großen´´, bewundern sein militärisches Genie. Friedrichs Bedeutung für die Weltgeschichte kann nicht hoch genug eingeschätzt werden. Vom Geiste der Aufklärung beseelt, von Voltaire beeinflusst, schafft er ein unabhängiges Rechtssystem und beendet die Leibeigenschaft. Er war der Architekt eines starken Preußens, der Keimzelle des künftigen Deutschen Reiches. Einsam, krank und verbittert, nur von seinen Windhunden umgeben, vergräbt er sich in seinen letzten Lebensjahren im Lustschlösschen Sanscoussi bei Potsdam und stirbt 1786.Besuchen Sie auch die Verlagswebsite unter www.komplett-media.de. 1.
