"Remembering the Crusades and Crusading examines the diverse contexts in which crusading was memorialised and commemorated in the medieval world and beyond. The collection not only shows how the crusades were commemorated in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, but also considers the longer-term remembrance of the crusades into the modern era. This collection is divided into three sections, the first of which deals with the textual, material and visual sources used to remember. Each contributor introduces a particular body of source material and presents first-hand experience of using those sources in their own research. The second section contains four chapters examining four specific communities active in commemorating the Crusades, including religious communities, family groups and royal courts. Finally, the third section examines the cultural memory of crusading in the Byzantine, Iberian and Baltic regions beyond the early years, as well as the trajectory of crusading memory in the Muslim Middle East"--Provided by publisher.

Kasztner's crime
Bogdanor, Paul, author
New Brunswick ; Transaction Publishers, [2016]
1. The underground -- 2. Negotiating with Nazis -- 3. Salvation or extermination? -- 4. Two days in May -- 5. Co-opting the rescuers -- 6. The brand mission -- 7. The Kenyermezo deception -- 8. Sabotaging rescue in the ghettos -- 9. The Strasshof deal -- 10. Deceiving the outside world -- 11. The Strasshof operation -- 12. Gestapo informer -- 13. Sabotaging rescue in Budapest -- 14. Pseudo-rescuer -- 15. A guest of the SS -- 16. Nuremberg -- 16. Kasztner in court -- 17. The verdicts.

"This book reexamines one of the most intense controversies of the Holocaust: the role of Rezső Kasztner in facilitating the murder of most of Nazi-occupied Hungary's Jews in 1944. Because he was acting head of the Jewish rescue operation in Hungary, some have hailed him as a savior. Others have charged that he collaborated with the Nazis in the deportations to Auschwitz. What is indisputable is that Adolf Eichmann agreed to spare a special group of 1,684 Jews, who included some of Kasztner's relatives and friends, while nearly 500,000 Hungarian Jews were sent to their deaths. Why were so many lives lost? After World War II, many Holocaust survivors condemned Kasztner for complicity in the deportation of Hungarian Jews. It was alleged that, as a condition of saving a small number of Jewish leaders and select others, he deceived ordinary Jews into boarding the trains to Auschwitz. The ultimate question is whether Kastztner was a Nazi collaborator, as branded by Ben Hecht in his 1961 book Perfidy, or a hero, as Anna Porter argued in her 2009 book Kasztner's Train. Opinion remains divided. Paul Bogdanor makes an original, compelling case that Kasztner helped the Nazis keep order in Hungary's ghettos before the Jews were sent to Auschwitz, and sent Nazi disinformation to his Jewish contacts in the free world. Drawing on unpublished documents, and making extensive use of the transcripts of the Kasztner and Eichmann trials in Israel, Kasztner's Crime is a chilling account of one man's descent into evil during the genocide of his own people"--

1916 : a global history
Jeffery, Keith
New York, NY : Bloomsbury, 2016
Introduction -- Gallipoli -- Verdun -- On the Isonzo -- 'Ypres on the Liffey' -- Jutland and the war at sea -- The Eastern Front -- Asia -- The war in Africa -- The Somme -- The Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans -- The USA -- Russia -- Conclusion : The potential for peace in 1916.

"So much of the literature on the First World War centers on the trench warfare of the Western Front, and these were essential battlegrounds. But the war was in fact truly a global conflict, and by focusing on a sequence of events in 1916 across many continents, historian Keith Jeffery's magisterial work casts new light on the Great War. Starting in January with the end of the catastrophic Gallipoli campaign, Jeffery recounts the massive struggle for Verdun over February and March; the Easter Rising in Ireland in April; dramatic events in Russia in June on the eastern front; the familiar story of the war in East Africa, where some 200,000 Africans may have died; and the November U.S. presidential race in which Woodrow Wilson was re-elected on a platform of keeping the United States out of the war--a position he reversed within five months. Incorporating the stories of civilians in all countries, both participants in and victims of the war, 1916: A Global History is a major addition to the literature and the Great War by a historian at the height of his powers."
