Ian Kershaw:
Making Friends with Hitler: Lord Londonderry, the Nazis, and the Road to War - Taschenbuch

2005, ISBN: 0143036076

[SR: 348296], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780143036074], Penguin Books, Penguin Books, Book, [PU: Penguin Books], 2005-10-25, Penguin Books, Author of Making Friends with Hitler, Ian Kershaw’s detailed account of British attitudes towards Nazi Germany and the ultimately futile attempts through appeasement to avoid military confrontation is a thought-provoking analysis of a chapter in history that many would prefer to forget. The central figure in the book, Lord Londonderry, cousin of Winston Churchill, was a member of one of Britain’s grandest and wealthiest aristocratic families, who held high and important office as Secretary of State for Air during the time of Hitler’s rise to power. The man was fabulously well-connected. The King called him ‘Charley’ and members of the Royal family were frequent guests at his London mansion. The political establishment sat regularly at his dinner table and he was on first-name terms with all the major political figures of the day. After being forced out of Government in 1935, Londonderry became a frequent visitor to Germany, met Hitler several times, stayed with Göring at his hunting lodge, and fraternized with Ribbentrop and other prominent Nazis. Instinctively pro-German, Londonderry had unalterable faith, at least until it was far too late, in the idea that war could best be averted by the gaining the friendship of Hitler’s Germany. The Nazi’s for their part conscientiously courted and exploited Londonderry’s good opinion and contacts until it became clear to them that he lacked real influence with policy-makers. Kershaw’s book is the story of the rise and fall of Londonderry and, more generally, the story of Britain’s road to war. Londonderry was an incurable letter-writer who left a vast correspondence of over 10,000 letters, many of which directly related to Anglo-German relations, and this has enabled Kershaw to write an detailed account of this period in Britain’s history. The first part of the book looks at the range of misconceived and delusional attitudes to be found in Britain regarding Hitler’s intentions and character at the beginning of Nazi rule. We hear of Londonderry’s time as Air Minister in the context of British policies on armament and rearmament in the early 1930’s and his ultimate dismissal from government office in 1935. The heart of the book describes his well-intentioned but naïve career as the gentleman amateur diplomat intent on saving the world from a disastrous European war. Later chapters reveal Londonderry’s ultimate disillusionment with Hitler and the bitterly resentful later years of his life spent campaigning to vindicate his record as Air Minister and fruitlessly trying to shake off his acquired reputation as the most prominent Nazi sympathizer in Britain. In telling the Londonderry story Kershaw answers all the key questions about this period in Britain's history. How and why was it that so many people radically underestimated or misunderstood Hitler’s intentions? Could more have been done to stem the rise of Nazism and destroy Hitler when he was still weak? Was war with Germany avoidable or inevitable under the circumstances? What were the realistic policy options? The only drawback is not with the book itself but rather with Londonderry the man. In short, it’s difficult to care about him, not because he was a Nazi sympathizer, which he was not, but because he appears as a tedious, rather pathetic figure evoking curiosity rather than admiration, contempt, or pity. In the end this is the story of a man unable to adjust easily to the requirements of democratic politics, duped by power politicians, and ultimately brought down by his own aristocratic values. Kershaw has produced another piece of first-class historical scholarship. Thanks to him, Londonderry may regain his place in history., 56833011, Historisch, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65274011, 2.

ISBN: 9780143036074

ID: 978014303607

Ian Kershaw’s biography of Adolf Hitler is widely regarded as the definitive work on the subject, as well as one of the most brilliant biographies of our time. In Making Friends with Hitler, the great scholar shines remarkable new light on decisions that led to war by tracing the extraordinary story of Lord Londonderry—one of Britain’s wealthiest aristocrats, cousin of Winston Churchill, confidant of the king, and the only British cabinet member to outwardly support the Nazi party. Through Londonderry’s tragic tale, Kershaw shows us that behind the accepted dogma of English appeasement and German bullying is a much more complicated and interesting reality—full of miscalculations on both sides that proved to be among the most fateful in history.
