A Time Of Gifts from the Author: Patrick Leigh Fermor. In 1933, at the age of 18, Patrick Leigh Fermor set out on an extraordinary journey by foot - from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople. A Time of Gifts is the first volume in a trilogy recounting the trip, and takes the reader with him as far as Hungary. It is a book of compelling glimpses - not only of the events which were curdling Europe at that time, but also of its resplendent domes and monasteries, its great rivers, the sun on the Bavarian snow, the storks and frogs, the hospitable burgomasters who welcomed him, and that world's grandeurs and courtesies. His powers of recollection have astonishing sweep and verve, and the scope is majestic.

Die Zeit Der Gaben from the Author: Patrick Leigh Fermor. Zu Fuß zum Meer, die Feder im GepĂ€ck Eine der erstaunlichsten Reisen unserer Zeit! An einem verregneten Dezembertag macht sich der 18jĂ€hrige Patrick Leigh Fermor zu Fuß, quer durch Europa, nach Konstantinopel auf. In dem Jahr, in dem Hitler an die Macht kommt, wandert der vielseitig interessierte junge Mann durch Wiesen und WĂ€lder, verschneite StĂ€dte und die Salons der guten Gesellschaft. Er macht Bekanntschaft mit Handwerkern, Arbeitern und Direktoren, er nĂ€chtigt in Ă€rmlichen Hospizen, Scheunen und auf mĂ€rchenhaften Schlössern. Mit wachem Geist nimmt er nicht nur die Schönheit der Landschaften wahr, sondern erahnt das Heraufziehen des Sturms. In seiner poetischen und prĂ€zisen Sprache erzĂ€hlt Patrick Leigh Fermor von Menschen und Begegnungen, Landschaften und Orten im Europa vor dem Krieg. Er lĂ€ĂŸt vor unserem inneren Auge noch einmal das alte Europa erstehen, das wenige Jahre spĂ€ter endgĂŒltig in Schutt und Asche versinkt.

Patrick Leigh Fermor from the Author: Artemis Cooper. Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915-2011) was a war hero whose exploits in Crete are legendary, and above all he is widely acclaimed as the greatest travel writer of our times, notably for his books about his walk across pre-war Europe, A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water; he was a self-educated polymath, a lover of Greece and the best company in the world. Artemis Cooper has drawn on years of interviews and conversations with Paddy and his cloest friends as well as having complete access to his archives. Her beautifully crafted biography portrays a man of extraordinary gifts - no one wore their learning so playfully, nor inspired such passionate friendship.

Between The Woods And The Water from the Author: Patrick Leigh Fermor. The acclaimed travel writer's youthful journey - as an 18-year-old - across 1930s Europe by foot began in A Time of Gifts, which covered the author's exacting journey from the Lowlands as far as Hungary. Picking up from the very spot on a bridge across the Danube where his readers last saw him, we travel on with him across the great Hungarian Plain on horseback, and over the Romanian border to Transylvania. The trip was an exploration of a continent which was already showing signs of the holocaust which was to come. Although frequently praised for his lyrical writing, Fermor's account also provides a coherent understanding of the dramatic events then unfolding in Middle Europe. But the delight remains in travelling with him in his picaresque journey past remote castles, mountain villages, monasteries and towering ranges.

Adolf Hitler from the Author: Volker Ullrich. Die neue große Hitler-Biographie fĂŒr unsere Zeit Wer war Hitler wirklich? Eindrucksvoll zeichnet der Historiker und Publizist Volker Ullrich ein neues, ĂŒberraschendes PortrĂ€t des Menschen hinter der öffentlichen Figur des »FĂŒhrers«. Sichtbar werden dabei alle Facetten Hitlers: seine gewinnenden und ab-stoßenden ZĂŒge, seine Freundschaften und seine Beziehungen zu Frauen, seine Bega-bungen und Talente, seine Komplexe und seine mörderischen AntriebskrĂ€fte. Der erste Band schildert den Weg des Diktators von seinen frĂŒhen Jahren in Wien und MĂŒnchen bis zum scheinbaren Höhepunkt seiner Macht im FrĂŒhjahr 1939. Eine glĂ€n-zend erzĂ€hlte Biographie, die Hitler nicht als Monster zeigt, sondern als Meister der VerfĂŒhrung und Verstellung - und gerade dadurch nicht nur die AbgrĂŒnde seiner Persönlichkeit, sondern auch das Geheimnis seines Aufstiegs greifbar macht.
