English Book in Eighteenth-Century Germany: Bernhard Fabian
It´s 1940, and the British Expeditionary Force is caught ill prepared for the onslaught of the German Blitzkrieg and its deadly panzers. Caught in the desperate retreat to Dunkirk, Tom Harsker, son of a World War One ace, discovers that he is a natural soldier. Escaping to England and with complete disaster narrowly averted, Tom is selected to join the newly formed Commandos. With Britain standing alone and the seemingly inexorable German forces massing across the Channel for invasion, Tom and his fellow Commandos must battle against all odds in daring raids to buy precious time. 1.

The massive offensives on the Eastern Front during 1915 are too often overshadowed by the events in Western Europe, but the scale and ferocity of the clashes between Imperial Germany, Hapsburg Austria-Hungary, and Tsarist Russia were greater than anything seen on the Western Front and ultimately as important to the final outcome of the war. Now, with the work of internationally renowned Eastern Front expert Prit Buttar, this fascinating story of the unknown side of the First World War is finally being told. In Germany Ascendant, Buttar examines the critical events of 1915, as the German Gorlice-Tarnow Offensive triggered the collapse of Russian forces, coming tantalizingly close to knocking Russia out of the war altogether. Throughout the year, German dominance on the Eastern Front grew - but stubborn Russian resistance forced the continuation of a two-front war that would drain Germany´s reserves of men and equipment. From the bitter fighting in the Carpathian Mountains, where the cragged peaks witnessed thousands of deaths and success was measured in feet and inches, to the sweeping advances through Serbia where the capital Belgrade was seized, to the almost medieval battle for the fortress of Przemysl, this is a staggeringly ambitious history of some the most important moments of the First World War. 1.

Pre-University Paper from the year 2019 in the subject Earth Science / Geography - General, Basics, grade: 1,0, , language: English, abstract: As an inhabitant of Grevenbroich, I am personally interested in the influence of lignite mining on my home town, which I am going to focus on in this research paper. For this purpose, the topic is essentially divided into two main parts. At first, I am going to portray the social development having taken place consistent with the different phases of valorisation of Grevenbroich?s mines, from the very first excavation to modern times. Naturally, the changing situation of Grevenbroich?s population has entailed drastic demographic changes as well. However, it is essential to take the huge ecological impact of brown coal extraction into consideration in order to gain a complete impression. Hereby, it has to be differentiated between the aquatic ecosystems and those ashore. Weighing these social and ecological effects, one can finally draw a conclusion of the influence of lignite mining on Grevenbroich, the energy capital of Germany.
