Ting between the Allied and Axis forces and is in the grip of a civil war From this beginning the story moves to Germany which is fast yielding to Russian and Allied forces pushing in on all fronts In a balanced restrained yet evocative fashion Catherine Bailey outlines these complicated historical events and the social environs in which Fey von Hassell moves From orderly tensed but still civilized the story turnsramatic and brutal Catherine Bailey with masterfully placed strokes Literature of Africa delivers a fair complete and insightful portrait of the protagonist She uses Fey s own voice from lettersiary entries and memoirs to reveal her feelings In so Women and Sustainable Agriculture: Interviews With 14 Agents of Change doing Catherine Baileyeeply involves the reader in the pain suffering and emotional turmoil that Fey has to withstand This book is a reminder of the catastrophic conseuences that fascist ideologies have had and can have in European history It is also a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that millions of people symbolically personified in the story in Fey s father Ulrich underwent to hand us the liberal emocracies we now live in Ultimately what makes this a must read book is Catherine Bailey s fine and vivid prose It is her prose that brings the story to life transposing the reader right into the unfolding of events Catherine Bailey is a British historian and the author of two previous books She tends to look at incidents and people in history and her books She tends to look at specific incidents people in history and her are always well written Her new book Lost Boys A Family Ripped Apart by War which covers the well known Operation Valkyrie and it s aftermath There was fairly strong anti Hitleranti Nazi sentiment in Germany uring the war Several assassination plots against Hitler and his coterie were plannedbut basically remained plots as they were too Rebuilding difficult or the plotters ran into bad luck until Valkyrie on July 20 1944 Bad luck because the meeting was held in a practically open room and the bomb thatid actually blow up wasn t strong enough to kill Hitler The plotters were uickly rounded up and many plotters were put to Intro to Alien Invasion death Hitler also vowed to take the punishment to the plotters families and that s the basis of Bailey s book One of the plotters was Ulrich von Hassell a Germaniplomat and his family was arrested by the Gestapo One of the v0n Hassell s four children was Fey Pirzio Biroli who was married to an Italian aristocrat Both families were active in the resistance against Hitler and Mussolini The two boys ages 3 and 4 when they are arrested with their mother by the Gestapo in their northern Italian villa Separated from her children Fey is put with a group of Prominenten family of those considered important to the Gestapo This group was often held as hostages and trade bait to foreign governments Okay if I ve made The Lost Boys sound confusing it is because the book IS confusing I ve given it four stars instead of five because I thought it could have been written in a clearer manner For instance the story is much about Fey Pirzio Biroli and what she endured as she was shuffled from one holding cell to another from one concentration camp to another as part of the Prominenten for the last 8 months of the war Her boys were lost to her and their family but by the end of the book their story ended happily I think the book needed a strict editor to shape the story and the characters However the book is interesting and I can recommend it I was pleased to see all the photographs of the people and places referred to in the text as well as some excellent maps of Germany Austria and Italy I would just advise you read the book when you have easy access to Wikipedia because there are lots of people and places to look up With so much having been written about the 2nd world war we should have reached saturation point some time ago but at least as far as I am concerned this story of what happened to the families of those who plotted to assas This was a harrowing read Not as gripping as her previous two books.
