    The Siege Of Jerusalem: Crusade And Conquest In 1099
      The Siege Of Jerusalem: Crusade And Conquest In 1099.

      The Story Of The Final Battle Of The First Crusade The Most Extraordinary Siege In Medieval History Began With The Arrival Of A Christian Army At Jerusalem On The Dawn Of Tuesday, 6 June, 1099. Other Sieges May Have Lasted Longer, Involved Greater Numbers Of Troops, And Deployed More Siege Engines But Nothing Else In The Entire Medieval Period Compares To The Extraordinary Journey That The Besiegers Had Made To Get To Their Goal And The Heady Religious Enthusiasm Among The Troops. This Was The Culmination Of The First Crusade, A Military Pilgrimage That Had Seen Hundreds Of Thousands Of Men, Women, And Children Leave Their Homes In Western Europe, March For Three Years Over Thousands Of Miles, And Undergo Tremendou Hardship To Reach Their Longed-for Goal: Jerusalem. No Other Medieval Army Had Made Such A Journey And No Other Army Had Such A Peculiar Makeup. There Were Hundreds Of Unattached Poor Women, Gathered From The Margins Of Northern French Towns By The Charity Of The Charismatic Preacher, Peter The Hermit, And Given A New Direction In Their Lives Through The Expedition To Jerusalem. There Were Farmers Who Had Sold Their Land And Homes, Put All Their Belongings In Two-wheeled Carts, And Marched Alongside Their Oxen. Bards Came And Earned Their Keep By Composing Songs About The Events They Were Witnessing, From Songs About The Heroic Charges Of The Nobles To Bawdy Satires On The Lax Behavior Of Some Of The Senior Clergy. Naturally, Knights And Foot Soldiers Were At The Heart Of The Fighting Forces, But Even Here There Was A Strange Fluidity To The Army, With The Status Of A Warrior Rising Or Falling Depending On His Ability To Keep His Horse Alive And His Armor In Good Order. "the Siege Of Jerusalem" Offers A Vivid And Engaging Account Of The Events Of That Siege; The Key Figures, The Turning Points, The Spiritual Beliefs Of The Participants, The Deep Political Rivalries, And The Massacre Of The Inhabitants, Which Left Such A Deep Scar In The Horrified Imagination Of Those Who Learned About It, That It Still Evokes Passiinate Feelings Nearly A Thousand Years Later.

    The Shadow War Against Hitler: The Covert Operations Of America's Wartime Secret Intelligence Service
      The Shadow War Against Hitler: The Covert Operations Of America's Wartime Secret Intelligence Service.

      Surveying The Expanding Conflict In Europe During One Of His Famous Fireside Chats In 1940, President Franklin Roosevelt Ominously Warned That "we Know Of Other Methods, New Methods Of Attack. The Trojan Horse. The Fifth Column That Betrays A Nation Unprepared For Treachery. Spies, Saboteurs, And Traitors Are The Actors In This New Strategy." Having Identified A New Type Of War - A Shadow War - Being Perpetrated By Hitler's Germany, Fdr Decided To Fight Fire With Fire, Authorizing The Formation Of The Office Of Strategic Services (oss) To Organize And Oversee Covert Operations. Based On An Extensive Analysis Of Oss Records, Including The Vast Trove Of Records Released By The Cia In The 1980s And '90s, As Well As A New Set Of Interviews With Oss Veterans Conducted By The Author And A Team Of American Scholars From 1995 To 1997, "the Shadow War Against Hitler" Is The Full Story Of America's Far-flung Secret Intelligence Apparatus During World War Ii. In Addition To Its Responssibilities Generating, Processing, And Interpreting Intelligence Information, The Oss Orchestrated All Manner Of Dark Operations, Including Extendig Feelers To Anti-hitler Elements, Infiltrating Spies And Sabotage Agents Behind Enemy Lines, And Implementing Propaganda Programs. Planned And Directed From Washington, The Anti-hitler Campaign Was Largely Conducted In Europe, Especially Through The Oss's Foreign Outposts In Bern And London. A Fascinating Cast Of Characters Made The Oss Run: William J. Donovan, One Of The Most Decorated Individuals In The American Military Who Became The Driving Force Behind The Oss's Genesis; Allen Dulles, The Future Cia Chief Who Ran The Bern Office, Which He Called "the Big Window Onto The Fascist World"; A Veritable Pantheon Of Ivy League Academics Who Were Recruited To Work For The Intelligence Services; And, Not Least, Roosevelt Himself. A Major Contribution Of The Book Is The Story Of How Fdr Employed Hitler's Former Propaganda Chief, Ernst "putzi" Hanfstengl, As A Private Spy. More Than A Record Of Dramatic Incidents And Daring Personalities, This Book Adds Significantly To Our Understanding Of How The United States Fought World War Ii. It Demonstrates That The Extent, And Limitations, Of Secret Intelligence Information Shaped Not Only The Conduct Of The War But Also The Face Of The World That Emerged From The Shadows.
