The Sunday Times #1 BestsellerThe great airborne battle for the bridges in 1944 by Britain's Number One bestselling historian and author of the classic Stalingrad'Our greatest chronicler of the Second World War . . . his fans will love it' - Robert Fox, Evening Standard'The eye for telling detail which we have come to expect from Antony Beevor. . . this time, though, he turns his brilliance as a military historian to a subject not just of defeat, but dunderhead stupidity' Daily Mail On 17 September 1944, General Kurt Student, the founder of Nazi Germany's parachute forces, heard the growing roar of aeroplane engines. He went out on to his balcony above the flat landscape of southern Holland to watch the air armada of Dakotas and gliders carrying the British 1st Airborne and the American 101st and 82nd Airborne divisions. He gazed up in envy at this massive demonstration of paratroop power.Operation Market Garden, the plan to end the war by capturing the bridges leading to the Lower Rhine and beyond, was a bold concept: the Americans thought it unusually bold for Field Marshal Montgomery. But could it ever have worked? The cost of failure was horrendous, above all for the Dutch, who risked everything to help. German reprisals were pitiless and cruel, and lasted until the end of the war.The British fascination with heroic failure has clouded the story of Arnhem in myths. Antony Beevor, using often overlooked sources from Dutch, British, American, Polish and German archives, has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting, which General Student himself called 'The Last German Victory'. Yet this book, written in Beevor's inimitable and gripping narrative style, is about much more than a single, dramatic battle. It looks into the very heart of war.'In Beevor's hands, Arnhem becomes a study of national character' - Ben Macintyre, The Times'Superb book, tirelessly researched and beautifully written' - Saul David, Daily Telegraph'Complete mastery of both the story and the sources' - Keith Lowe, Literary Review'Another masterwork from the most feted military historian of our time' - Jay Elwes, Prospect Magazine'The analysis he has produced of the disaster is forensic' - Giles Milton, Sunday Times'He is a master of his craft . . . we have here a definitive account' - Piers Paul Read, The Tablet

It's been 101 days since Felix Hoffmann's girlfriend, Celine, left Berlin in a humanitarian convoy carrying aid to Kurdish northern Iraq. Now her coffin returns home. With the Iraq War all but begun, the story coming from Baghdad is that the young woman orchestrated the very bomb attack that killed her. But a devastated Felix, doctor at South Berlin Hospital, cannot believe that Celine would willingly participate in such an act, and certain clues - as well as questioning from German, Iraqi, and American agencies - raise the good doctor's suspicions. A cryptic e-mail propels Felix to seek out the truth of what really happened to his lover. He discovers that part of the transported "humanitarian aid" was not actually humanitarian at all, leading him to believe that Celine's fateful mission bore a far more dangerous purpose…and a far different outcome. And when the truth surfaces, Felix must fight for his life - or become another casualty of war. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David de Vries.

ZONE 23 ... a darkly comic dystopian satire about being human, all-too-human, featuring two of the most endearing Anti-Social anti-heroes that ever rebelled against the forces of Normality. Set in the post-catastrophic future, in a peaceful, prosperous, corporate-controlled society where all dissent and non-conformity has been pathologized, and the human race is being genetically corrected in order to establish everlasting peace on Earth, Zone 23 is a hilarious, heartbreaking affirmation of the anarchic human spirit, and a defiant departure from the norms of both the genre sci-fi and literary novel. C. J. Hopkins is the author of several critically acclaimed and award-winning stage plays, including Horse Country, screwmachine/eyecandy, and The Extremists. His political satire and commentary has appeared on NPR Berlin, in CounterPunch, ColdType, and other journals, and has been translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. His plays are published by Bloomsbury Publishing (Methuen) and Broadway Play Publishing, Inc., and have been produced in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and The Netherlands. Critical acclaim for Hopkins' previous work ... "A brilliant (and hilarious) critique of the emptiness of American life and the meaninglessness of the popular culture that attempts to fill the void" -- Toronto Globe & Mail "A blistering revelation ... Hopkins' body of work owes a huge debt to the absurdists and so manages to blast beyond the merely political or allegorical to the existential" -- Time Out New York "Sharp, brilliant, intense, fast-moving, made for the moment we live in" -- The Scotsman, Edinburgh "A gripping satire, which spills into sinister weirdness." -- Die Tageszeitung, Berlin
