But you'll have to be quick if you want it - the deal ends in about 19 hours.
I learned so much from "Time's Echo". Eichler's writing about music, memory, and the mass murder of Jews is informed by both his broad historical contextualisation and the specific details he includes, often drawn from his own visits to places important to the music he discusses. An example of the broad historical contextualisation would be his account of the significance of music to German Jews and their aspiration to Bildung, while the author's visit to Garmish - Partenkirchen sheds light on the ambiguities and compromises of Richard Strauss's career under the Third Reich.

Gah. I've just visited a #SecondWorldWar group on Facebook, and the first two posts I saw were wrong.
One had a photo of a Sturmtiger claiming it was a Maus.
The other mentioned the Victoria Cross. It correctly mentioned that only one person won the VC twice during the war, but then listed how many VCs were awarded by country, and missed out New Zealand. Charles Upham, the man who won it twice, was a New Zealander.
I feel like I'm being trolled.
Phyllis Latour, the last surviving female #SOE F Section agent, has died.
The latest #HistoryRage episode is Robert Pike on Oradour-sur-Glane. Not surprisingly, it's a difficult listen, but I'd recommend it nonetheless.
My cover designer sent me the attached earlier, with the following question. "Why use a real cover designer when you can create masterpieces like this using AI?"
For those that don't know, the attack on Pearl Harbor was carried out by the Japanese. The planes on the cover are German Fw190s.
I've blurred the author name because I have no desire to cause a pile-on.
