May 1940: Sergeant Jack Tanner has been posted to a training company on the southeast coast of England where the mysterious deaths of two Polish refugees lead him to believe there has been foul play. As the Germans launch their blitzkrieg in Europe, the entire company are sent to join the battle to stop Hitler´s drive across the Low Countries. Pitted against the die-hard Nazis of the SS ´´Death´s Head´´ division and the great panzer commander, General Rommel himself, it is left to Tanner to get his men back to Allied lines. But if they are to have any hope of surviving the mayhem of Dunkirk, Tanner must first deal with an enemy far more deadly than the Germans.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gordon Griffin.

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Stalingrad by Antony Beevor, read by Peter Nobel. Antony Beevor´s Stalingrad is a harrowing look at one of history´s darkest moments. In October 1942, a panzer officer wrote, ´Stalingrad is no longer a town.... Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones cannot bear it for long; only men endure.´ The battle for Stalingrad became the focus of Hitler and Stalin´s determination to win the gruesome, vicious war on the eastern front. The citizens of Stalingrad endured unimaginable hardship; the battle, with fierce hand-to-hand fighting in each room of each building, was brutally destructive to both armies. But the eventual victory of the Red Army, and the failure of Hitler´s Operation Barbarossa, was the first defeat of Hitler´s territorial ambitions in Europe and the start of his decline. Antony Beevor is the renowned author of Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature, and Berlin, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees Award. His books have sold nearly four million copies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Noble. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/pauk/000974/bk_pauk_000974_sample.mp3.

The you-are-there story of one of the most ferocious small-unit combats in US history.... As part of the massive Allied invasion of Normandy, three airborne divisions were dropped behind enemy lines to sow confusion in the German rear and prevent panzer reinforcements from reaching the beaches. In the dark early hours of D-Day, this confusion was achieved well enough, as nearly every airborne unit missed its drop zone, creating a kaleidoscope of small-unit combat. Fortunately for the Allies, the 505th Regimental Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division hit on or near its drop zone. Its task was to seize the vital crossroads of Ste Me´re Eglise, and to hold the bridge over the Merderet River at nearby La Fie´re. Benefiting from dynamic battlefield leadership, the paratroopers reached the bridge, only to be met by wave after wave of German tanks and infantry desperate to force the crossing. Reinforced by glider troops, who suffered terribly in their landings from the now-alert Germans, the 505th not only held the vital bridge for three days but launched a counterattack in the teeth of enemy fire to secure their objective once and for all, albeit at gruesome cost. In No Better Place to Die, Robert M. Murphy provides an objective narrative of countless acts of heroism, almost breathtaking in its ´´you are there´´ detail. No World War II veteran is better known in 82nd Airborne circles than Robert M. (´´Bob´´) Murphy. A Pathfinder and member of A Company, 505th PIR, Bob was wounded three times in action, and made all four combat jumps with his regiment, fighting in Sicily, Italy, Normandy, and Holland. He was decorated for valor for his role at La Fie´re, and is a Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor. After the war, he was instrumental in establishing the 505th RCT Association. 1.
