Обложка книги Checkpoint Checkpoint

 Автор: Albahari David

From the award-winning Serbian author David Albahari comes a devastating and Kafkaesque war fable about an army unit sent to guard a military checkpoint with no idea where they are or who the enemy might be.

Atop a hill, deep in the forest, an army unit is dropped off to guard a checkpoint. The commander doesn’t know where they are, what border they’re protecting, or why. Their map is useless. The radio crackles with a language no one can recognize. A soldier is found dead in a latrine and the unit vows vengeance—but the killer, like the enemy, is unknown. Amid orgies and massacres, the commander struggles to maintain order and keep his soldiers alive, but he can’t be sure whether they’re fighting a war or caught in some bizarre military experiment.

Equal parts Waiting for Godot and Catch-22, David Albahari’s Checkpoint is a haunting and hysterical confrontation with the absurdity of war.

 Серия: Twilight of the Gods

Germany, 1985.

The Reich Council has fallen and the Reich is sundered in two, but the uneasy peace will not last long. To the east, Karl Holliston – now styling himself the Fuhrer of the Greater German Reich – is planning the conquest of Berlin and the destruction of the rebels, while to the west Germany’s former satellites are planning a bid for independence and the North Atlantic Alliance is uneasily considering just what will happen to the Reich’s vast arsenal of nuclear weapons.

As the civil war begins, as the Panzers begin their advance on Berlin, the rebels are forced to fight to save their revolution…

…Or watch helplessly as a jackboot stamps down on Germany, forever.

[Like my other self-published Kindle books, Chosen of the Valkyries is DRM-free. You may reformat it as you choose. There is a large sample of the text – and my other books – on my site: chrishanger.net. Try before you buy.]

 Серия: The Zone


The Special Combat force is hardened to horror but during a truce they find a KGB battalion has exceeded anything they’ve seen. In a fury, despite the truce, despite threats from their own commanders, they decide to extract a revenge. They set out to wipe them out the KGB battalion to the last man.


The men of the Special Combat Force have become hardened to atrocities performed by the Warsaw Pact armies. Or they thought they had. During a shaky truce, when those highly trained and experienced fighters are given mundane jobs, they discover mass graves and evidence of the grossest atrocities being performed on civilians. The evidence is that the horrors are perpetrated by a KGB battalion opposite their position. Driven to fury by what they have witnessed the Special Combat Force decide to take matters into their own hands when their reports are ignored and they are even threatened with disbandment if they don’t drop the accusations. Extracting revenge and putting a stop to further violations makes them enemies on both sides but nothing stops them, and they won’t stop until the job is done.

 Автор: Grass Guenter

Günter Grass has been wrestling with Germany's past for decades now. In this new novel Grass [examines a subject that has long been taboo — the suffering of Germans during World War II.

It is the story of the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, J a former cruise ship turned refugee carrier, by a Soviet submarine in January 1945. Some 9,000 people, most of them women and children fleeing from the advancing Red Army, went down in the Baltic Sea, making it the deadliest maritime disaster of all time.

Grass's narrator is one of the few survivors, a middle-aged journalist who lives in Berlin. Born to an unwed mother on a lifeboat the night of the attack, Paul Pokriefke tries to piece together the tragic events. While his mother Tulla sees her whole existence in terms of that calamitous moment, Paul wishes their life could have been more normal, less touched by the past. For his teenage son Konrad, who dabbles in the dark, far-right corner of the internet, the Gustloff embodies the denial of Germany's wartime agony.

Обложки нет Cпогади фронтовика. Одісея сірого «коляборанта»

 Автор: Загачевський Евстахий

Заглавие этой книги очень хорошо отражает ее содержание — это действительно фронтовые воспоминания без приукрас. Тяжелые воспоминания. Автор книги Евстахий Загачевський два с половиной года, прежде чем он перешел в 14–ю дивизию Войск СС «Галиция», постоянно находился на Восточном фронте, на передовой, в составе 3–й танковой дивизии СС «Тотенкопф».

Тяжелые фронтовые будни и военный быт, непрерывные бои, ранения, смерть боевых друзей, — все это ярко обрисовано в правдивых показаниях очевидца и участника событий трагической эпохи Второй мировой войны.

Автор отбыл настоящую фронтовую одиссею, на это указывают уже сами заголовки разделов: «В лесах под Невелем», «Великие Луки», «Десять дней под Ельней», «Ярцево». Несколько раз был ранен в боях.

Как только началось активное формирование дивизии Войск СС «Галиция», он просил о переводе туда. Но это произошло не так быстро, как хотелось: лишь во второй половине 1944 года, а именно, во время переформирования дивизии после Бродской катастрофы. Как фронтовой ветеран, Загачевський вскоре был откомандирован на 3–месячную сержантскую учебу.

Вместе с Дивизией «Галичина» автор отбыл вторую часть фронтовой одиссеи: борьба с партизанами в Словакии и в Словении, последние тяжелые бои в Австрии с Красной армией, передкапитуляционное отступление с фронта на запад, и наконец, «Три полных года неволи» (1945–48) в английском плену.
