To answer the question: To my knowledge there is no general history of Austria (Ostmark) during World War II 1938-1945, at least I haven't heard of such a book yet. However, there seems to be a small armada of books about the history of Austria in the last war year of 1945. Here are a few interestin...

Zivjo! David: I don't think that was a betrayal, but rather a lie or a deceive. As I said I am just reading some books about this right now during my long train rides and it is fascinating. In 1938, shortly before CZ was occupied there was a meeting in Czechoslovakia of the so-called PAX ROMANA move...

betrayal

Well, I personally would vote for the Munich Agreement 1938, an agreement reached on September 29, 1938, between Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and Italy (no Czechoslovakia???) as one of the worst betrayals in WW2. The poor Czechoslovaks, very close allies of British and French, were left with...

Liner Romolo in Brisbane, Australia 1940

Hi guys,

Just curious, but does anyone know by any chance the first name of the Italian Captain Gavino, the skipper of the passenger liner Romolo that escaped from Brisbane in 1940 and was then "caught" by RAAF in the Solomons?

Best regards,

Klemen

Castelrosso Archipel, 1941-1944

Just wonder if someone could fill me with some details about these Greek islands (today according to my map called MEGISTI) which are dangerously close to the Turkish coast during World War II? I know there was an ill-fated British commando raid on the islands and that from 1943 onwards they were us...
