ANTONINA OR, THE FALL OF ROME by WILKIE COLLINS PREFACE In preparing to compose a fiction founded on history, the writer of these pages thought it no necessary requisite of such a work that the principal characters appearing in it should be drawn from the historical personages of the period.

He knew well that it obliged a writer to add largely from invention to what was actually knownto fill in with ...

Roger Moorhouse THE DEVILS ALLIANCE Hitlers Pact with Stalin, 1939-1941 To my mother and the fond memory of my father AUTHORS NOTE It is always a challenge to make sense of the shifting sands of eastern Europes place names. For this book, in which frontiers move and rival languages intrude, I have employed a policy of using names appropriate to the period under scrutiny. So, to take the example of what is today the Ukrainian city of Lviv: In discussing September 1939, when it was the Polish city ...

This was to some extent an indication of the limited state of research and a tendency to separate the military history of the war from the structural analysis of the Nazi state. The ...
