Great Continental Railway Journeys: Series 4
13,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Michael Portillo embarks on six memorable railway journeys across Europe – armed only with his 1913 Bradshaw's Guide and sporting his trademark colourful jackets! On his travels, Michael visits towns and villages along the way – exploring the sights and sampling local traditions while telling the story of what happened in continental Europe in 1913, when everything changed as the world went to war. SOFIA TO ISTANBUL Michael celebrates Bulgarian independence with a traditional Thracian dance, before crossing continents via the Marmaray metro line. VIENNA TO TRIESTE Navigating a patchwork of nations which once formed part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Michael witnesses the breathtaking Alpine scenery of the Semmering Pass. PISA TO LAKE GARDA This Grand Tour of Italy – from Pisa's famous tower to the waters of Lake Garda – sees Michael exploring the cradle of the Renaissance before embarking on a misguided search for Spaghetti Bolognese... ATHENS TO THESSALONIKI Beginning at the Acropolis and ending in Thessaloniki, the site of a royal assassination, Michael reveals the influences at play in the creation of modern Greece. THE BLACK FOREST TO HANNOVER Michael seeks the essence of Germany – from the unifying tale of Hansel and Gretel to the pioneering scientists who laid the foundation for Germany's world-class transport technology. BARCELONA TO MALLORCA Returning to Spain, Michael traces the roots of the Civil War that divided his family, before sampling the perfect paella and paying homage to Barcelona's most famous architect.

Stunning Swakopmund 5 hour private tour
58,79 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Swakopmund is a German settlement on the coast of Namibia from the 1892's to just before the first world war. Situated 30km north of Walvis Bay in the mouth of the Swakop river, this town has really beautiful surroundings. Light-heartedly referred to as "Little Germany" by many travelers, the building style in the old part of town is distinctly German. On your private tour you will see the majestic dune belt, and with a short visit to Dune 7 you can touch and see the sand up close. Once in Swakopmund, there is no set route or tour, as you have a wide variety of things to do. On every tour agenda is the Railway platform that has been restored into a high end hotel now. From there there are many options, like the Steam Tractor "Martin Luther", the Swakopmund museum at the lighthouse, or the Krystall Gellerie, home of the largest quartz crystal. There are also many old buildings to view, but if this is not your kind of thing, and you prefer to walk in between the small streets to shop and explore, this will be accommodated. If you want to sit in a coffee shop and rest for a while, this too, will be done. Just tell your guide what you have in mind for Swakopmund, and it will be done. Please remember that if you want to buy any curios in Swakopmund that you will need a copy of your passport.Pickup in Walvis Bay is free of charge. It's quite a memorable place, so bring your camera!-----------------------P.S. If you are viewing this tour on TripAdvisor or Viator, you probably won't see the optional extras for this tour, because those platforms are lacking the optional extras feature.The optional extras for this tour include:1. Pickup in the harbor2. Drinks for the tourFor the proper full booking experience, as well as more details on this tour, go to: https://www.awesomechapters.com/private-day-tours/swakopmund/

World War II German Super-Heavy Siege Guns (eBo...
10,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the outbreak of World War II approached, Nazi Germany ordered artillery manufacturers Krupp and Rheimetall-Borsig to build several super-heavy siege guns, vital to smash through French and Belgian fortresses that stood in the way of the Blitzkrieg. These 'secret weapons' were much larger than the siege artillery of World War I and included the largest artillery piece of the war, the massive 80cm railway gun 'schwere Gustav' (Heavy Gustav). However, these complex and massive artillery pieces required years to build and test and, as war drew near, the German High Command hastily brought several WWI-era heavy artillery pieces back into service and then purchased, and later confiscated, a large number of Czech Skoda mortars. The new super siege guns began entering service in time for the invasion of Russia, notably participating in the attack on the fortress of Brest-Litovsk. The highpoint for the siege artillery was the siege of Sevastopol in the summer of 1942, which saw the largest concentration of siege guns in the war. Afterwards, when Germany was on the defensive in the second half of 1943, the utility of the guns was greatly diminished, and they were employed in a piecemeal and sporadic fashion on both the Eastern and Western Fronts. In total, the German Army used some 50 siege guns during World War II, far more than the thirty-five it had during World War I. Supported by contemporary photographs and detailed artwork of the guns and their components, this is an essential guide to these guns, exploring their history, development, and deployment in stunning detail.
