The Forgotten Prime Minister: The 14th Earl of Derby: Volume II: Achievement, 1851-1869 Hardcover – November 15, 2008
"Hitler's Forgotten Children" by Ingrid von Oelhafen
The Lebensborn program abducted as many as half a million children from across Europe. Through a process called Germanization, they were to become the next generation of the Aryan master race in the second phase of the Final Solution. Hitler's Forgotten Children is both a harrowing personal memoir and a devastating investigation into the awful crimes and monstrous scope of the Lebensborn program. Learn more | See related books
`This, the first full-length biography of Derby to be written with access to the archives, will be the only one needed this century... The next volume is eagerly awaited. ' Andrew Roberts, The Sunday Times
`The first volume leaves him on the brink of his first ministry; the second volume is eagerly awaited...fine work' A. W. Purdue, THES
`Hopefully readers will not have to wait long for the remainder of this impressive work. Meantime, the book's publishers should be congratulated on having produced a handsome, illustrated volume, at a fairly reasonable price.' Terry Jenkins, BBC History Magazine
`Hawkins's...achievement [is] in bringing the mind of a reading public back to this curious and significant statesman.' Michael Bentley, TLS
`OUP should be congratulated for publishing this book in two volumes...well-researched, well-written book.' Andrew Roberts, The Sunday Times
`This is real history. Unlike so many political biographers, Hawkins has really mastered the archives. There is much in this book that is new, much that will permanently change interpretations of the period. It is about real politicians, not caricatures or faceless abstractions. Those who already have some acquaintance with the early years of the nineteenth century will find great pleasure in reading this book' Leslie Mitchell, Literary Review
`It has clearly taken years of labour and will be the definitive work on its subject... After this very full, well-exectuted and revealing treatment there will not need to be another book about the 14th earl of Derby for a long time.' J. R. Parry, Parliamentary History
