Eyn guter Nachbawer ist ein edel Kleynodt | Peter Neu
Arenberg Foundation , 2022 ,
The book examines the coexistence of two neighbouring territories, the County of Blankenheim and the Duchy of Arenberg. This neighbourhood was - as is usual with neighbours - quite unstable. Periods of harmony were followed by periods of fierce quarrelling. While the noble families of Manderscheid-Blankenheim and Arenberg were almost always respectful and civilised in their dealings with each other, as befitted noblemen, the coexistence of their subjects was often characterised for decades by quarrels and malicious gossip.

Out of the Shadows, a compilation of stories of American military women who served in combat, is an eyeopening account of what it is really like to be a woman in a man’s world. The narratives reveal the true courage, strength, tenacity, and leadership exhibited by nine heroic women who share how they fought internal as well as external battles through Iraq and Afghanistan, through doubt, fear and loss, through disabling injuries, amputations and post-traumatic stress.

Allemagne et France au coeur du Moyen Âge | Michel Zink, Dominique Barthélemy, Rolf Grosse
Passés/Composés , 2020 , 978-2-3793-3231-9
Les histoires nationales de naguère étaient trop étroites : un seul pays, France ou Allemagne, représentait le centre du monde. Les auteurs, tant Français qu'Allemands et Belges, ont donc souhaité une nouvelle perspective, non moins sérieuse et fiable, mais un peu plus vibrante, et tissée de beaux textes et de documents captivants.
Violent Resistance - From the Baltics to Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe 1944–1956 | Michael Gehler, David Schriffl
Brill | Schöningh , 2020 , 978-3-506-70304-0
The end of the Second World war did not mean the end of violence for many regions in Eastern Europe. The establishment of Communist-led governments often met not only civil but also armed resistance. These actions were taken by partisan groups and paramilitary forces which in some cases had been formed already during the war to support axis forces. In other cases – like Poland’s Armia Krajowa – they fought Nazi and Soviet occupiers with the same fervour. The aims of the ﬁghters were the end of Communist rule and – like in the Baltic region – independence from the Soviet Union.
