Soldaten : on fighting, killing, and dying : the secret World War II transcripts of German POWs / Sönke Neitzel and Harald Welzer ; translated from the German by Jefferson Chase.
In 2001, spurred by a nagging curiosity over a transcript of a secretly recorded conversation he had come across in his research on the German U-boat wars, historian Sönke Neitzel paid a visit to the British national archives. He had heard of the existence of recorded interrogations of German POWs, but never about covert recordings taken within the confines of the holding cells, bedrooms, and camps that housed the prisoners.

We enjoyed this article from the Guardian Books Blog about book trailers. We use them sometimes, and they've been fun to make — but do they work? How do they sit next to the actual book? And what does the advent of e-books mean for the definition of what a book is? Interesting times indeed...

I really wanted to include a book trailer, I guess an inevitable move and a savvy one in order for publishers to use modern media to get interest in their books ! But I am not sure whether the faces of characters should be put in the readers mind ? But in this case a brilliant animation that gives a good essence about the book, I like the fact its in black and white and the animations comes from the world of books.

'I am a signed-up humanist and I guess what that means is that I believe in the capacity of humans to be good to each other.' Alom Shaha was in Australia recently, promoting his memoir The Young Atheist's Handbook. Compassionate and humane, it's a wonderful book, and this article is a fantastic introduction to Alom, and his approach to life.

“I wake up every morning and check if I am in a state of grace,” he told a television crew. “If not, I go back to bed.” Oh, Leonard Cohen, you're as hard to resist as the manatees! Seriously, though, this is an amazing article —the story of Leonard calming a riotous, 600,000-strong crowd with poetry is incredible.
