Book Description :

In the vineyards, wine caves, and cellars of France as war and occupation came to the country winemakers acted heroically not only to save the best wines but to defend their way of life. These are the true stories of vignerons who sheltered Jewish refugees in their cellars and of winemakers who risked their lives to aid the resistance. They made chemicals in secret laboratories to fuel the resistance and fled from the Gestapo when arrests became imminent. There were treacheries too, as some of the nation's winemakers supported the Vichy regime or the Germans themselves and collaborated. Donald Kladstrup is a retired American network correspondent. He and his wife Petie have accumulated these fascinating stories, told with the pace and action that will fascinate fiction and non-fiction readers alike.

Book Description :

Throughout history, waves of invaders have coveted the northeast corner of France: Attila the Hun in the fifth century, the English in the Hundred Years War, the Prussians in the nineteenth century. Yet this region – which historians say has suffered more battles and wars than any other place on earth – is also the birthplace of one thing the entire world equates with good times, friendship and celebration: champagne. Champagne is the story of the world's favourite wine. It tells how a sparkling beverage that became the toast of society during the Belle Epoque emerged after World War I as a global icon of fine taste and good living. The book celebrates the gutsy, larger–than–life characters whose proud determination nurtured and preserved the land and its grapes throughout centuries of conflict.

Book Description :

War, Wine and Valour: Five years fighting the Nazis. War, Wine and Valour is the true account of a bunch of kids, almost all of them straight out of high school, caught up in the wave of patriotism that ran counter to the rantings and strategies of Adolf Hitler. Not as cruel and hopeless as Erich Remarque's "All Quiet On The Western Front", which took place in the area of a few trenches, this book reflects with the same intensity the spread of the 20th Century horror named World War Two. The narrative is as factual as the ongoing war diaries of the author's personal experiences which thread the story through its six long years. The boys grew into men almost always in the face of diabolical threats and acts of infamy which were called Nazism. The author was wounded on three separate occasions, twice dangerously, firstly in infantry in the battles of Gazala and El Alamein and thereafter in tanks in Italy leading to the capture of Florence. On one occasion he absconded from hospital in bandages and returned to his regiment to fight with his comrades again. The book is a study in the psychology of men at bay confronted repeatedly with bombardment, direct attack by Stukas and other Nazi terror, and replying with bayonet charges, fighting patrols at night, counter-attacks under creeping barrages and close combat in tank battles. Numerous living characters from the ranks carry the story with freshness and pace, humour and vivid imagery. The author's war diaries have provided settings with accurate richness of detail from the wilds of central Abyssinia to the mid-winter of 1944/5 in the Italian Apennines. Gripping events, graphic pictures, surprising maps and extraordinary detail! 522 pages with 33 maps and 52 pictures

Book Description :

What would a history that put women at the centre of the rise and fall of kingdoms be like? When the armies of Khubilai arrived on Java in 1293, they found themselves in the middle of two warring states. Two historical traditions developed concerning the ensuing events: the official Chinese dynastic records in which no women are mentioned, and a number of Javanese histories and poems in which everything depends upon the actions and fates of certain women. The Chinese account has long been regarded as factual, whilst the Javanese versions have been dismissed as mere romance, their women stereotypical representations of male fantasies. But what happens if the women and the narratives about them are taken seriously rather than dismissed? Of Palm Wine, Women and War offers just such a reading.

Book Description :

In War, Wine, and Taxes, John Nye debunks the myth that Britain was a free-trade nation during and after the industrial revolution, by revealing how the British used tariffs--notably on French wine--as a mercantilist tool to politically weaken France and to respond to pressure from local brewers and others. The book reveals that Britain did not transform smoothly from a mercantilist state in the eighteenth century to a bastion of free trade in the late nineteenth. This boldly revisionist account gives the first satisfactory explanation of Britain's transformation from a minor power to the dominant nation in Europe. It also shows how Britain and France negotiated the critical trade treaty of 1860 that opened wide the European markets in the decades before World War I. Going back to the seventeenth century and examining the peculiar history of Anglo-French military and commercial rivalry, Nye helps us understand why the British drink beer not wine, why the Portuguese sold liquor almost exclusively to Britain, and how liberal, eighteenth-century Britain managed to raise taxes at an unprecedented rate--with government revenues growing five times faster than the gross national product. War, Wine, and Taxes stands in stark contrast to standard interpretations of the role tariffs played in the economic development of Britain and France, and sheds valuable new light on the joint role of commercial and fiscal policy in the rise of the modern state.
