Forest Brothers

Forest Brothers also documents the role of women in the resistance, giving equal credit to these often silent partners. In 1948 Lukša and two comrades broke through the Iron Curtain on the Polish border.

Although the resistance effort maintained its strength ideologically, the Lithuanian partisan movement never recovered from the culminating point in 1945 because of a shortfall in resources, a lack of external support, and the inability of resistance leadership to adapt rapidly enough against a comprehensive Soviet assimilation campaign. While many authors argue that the high point in the Lithuanian partisan war occurred between 1946 and 1947, the totality of evidence points towards a culmination in 1945 from which the effort never recovered. This culminating point may be attributed to a miscalculation of partisan resources on the part of their leadership as well as a lack of external support. The main reason for achieving culmination, however, rested in the inability of partisans to fight a conventional war against a massive, combined arms Soviet force. Mass deportations between three separate occupations and a wave of 60,000 escapees created a vacuum of political, military and moral leadership. Compounded with the realization that there would be no external support from the democratic West, the will of the Lithuanians was bent by the Soviet campaign. Ultimately, the numbers of partisans killed, captured or given amnesty by Soviet forces reflect an apex in military capability in 1945 that drastically diminished thereafter. The pinnacle of partisan effort in 1945 clearly represents a culminating point that forced the Lithuanian resistance movement to shift their operations drastically. Ultimately, based on the totality of evidence, the 1945 culminating point splits the resistance into two stages: 1) 1944-1945-conventional war operations, a period of traditional offensive warfare by an organized partisan movement; and 2) 1946-1953-irregular warfare operations, a period of unremitting decline by a significantly diminished resistance, relegated to a more defensive posture and small scale offensive operations.

With the Soviet reoccupation after World War II, Estonians faced a choice of submitting to Communist puppets or trying to survive in the traditional refuge of their forests while waiting for help from the West which never came. Those who chose the second course, Estonia's "Forest Brothers", mounted an armed resistance which, for more than a decade, seriously challenged Soviet rule. This is their story, told for the first time by sources within Estonia. This account is drawn from interviews with Forest Brothers who survived and relatives of those who died, and from documents and photographs from Soviet KGB files. It reflects Estonian courage and humor, the faith and sacrifice of a people suppressed, and the indomitable determination of a free nation to regain independence.

In 1990, the tiny Soviet Republic of Lithuania declared independence and began restoring the mechanisms of independent government and democracy that had been suppressed by its Soviet invaders for half a century. Lithuania examines the first years of this rebirth in the face of the legacy of the Soviet occupation. In addition to chronicling the lively chain of events leading to and stemming from the declaration of independence, Alexandra Ashbourne studies the essential components of rebirth: the creation of domestic, foreign, and security policies and the revitalization of an independent economy. Drawing from the personal testimony of Lithuanians closely connected to these events, Ashbourne appraises Lithuania's attempts to rejoin the international community and acquire an effective security guarantee. She concludes that the damage caused by fifty years of Soviet domination created obstacles to the process of rebirth, obstacles that are proving difficult and even impossible to overcome. Readers of Lithuania will find its discussions applicable to most former Soviet republics and Eastern Bloc states. The book will be invaluable to students and scholars of Lithuania, Soviet history, and international political policy.

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Complete Brothers Grimm's Fairy Tales (over 200 fairy tales and legends)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and his brother Wilhelm (1786-1859) were philologists and folklorists. The brothers rediscovered a host of fairy tales, telling of princes and princesses in their castles, witches in their towers and forests, of giants and dwarfs, of fabulous animals and dark deeds. Together with the well-known tales of «Rapunzel», «The Goose-Girl», «Sleeping Beauty», «Hansel and Gretel» and «Snow White» there are the darker tales such as «Death's Messengers» which deserve to be better known, and which will appeal not only to all who are interested in the history of folklore, but also to all those who simply love good storytelling. The two brothers wished to preserve their German folklore in a collection of tales that they believed had been handed down for generations. When they began in 1812 they had just 86 stories that rather harshly reflected the difficult life of European peasantry. Subsequent editions would grow to hold over 200 tales. As time passed, the Brothers Grimm found that their collection of fairy tales, with all of its royalty, magical creatures, and brave adventures, entranced those who read them. This compilation of fairy tales which includes the complete canon of over 200 tales has become a beloved set of classical stories the world over. Content: THE GOLDEN BIRD, HANS IN LUCK, JORINDA AND JORINDEL, THE TRAVELLING MUSICIANS, OLD SULTAN, THE STRAW, THE COAL, AND THE BEAN, BRIAR ROSE, THE DOG AND THE SPARROW, THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES, THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE, THE WILLOW-WREN AND THE BEAR, THE FROG-PRINCE, CAT AND MOUSE IN PARTNERSHIP, THE GOOSE-GIRL, THE ADVENTURES OF CHANTICLEER AND PARTLET, RAPUNZEL, FUNDEVOGEL, THE VALIANT LITTLE TAILOR, HANSEL AND GRETEL, THE MOUSE, THE BIRD, AND THE SAUSAGE, MOTHER HOLLE, LITTLE RED-CAP [LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD], THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM, TOM THUMB, RUMPELSTILTSKIN, CLEVER GRETEL, THE OLD MAN AND HIS GRANDSON, THE LITTLE PEASANT, FREDERICK AND CATHERINE, SWEETHEART ROLAND, SNOWDROP, THE PINK, CLEVER ELSIE, THE MISER IN THE BUSH, ASHPUTTEL, THE WHITE SNAKE, THE WOLF AND THE SEVEN LITTLE KIDS, THE QUEEN BEE, THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER, THE JUNIPER-TREE, THE TURNIP, CLEVER HANS, THE THREE LANGUAGES, THE FOX AND THE CAT, THE FOUR CLEVER BROTHERS, LILY AND THE LION, THE FOX AND THE HORSE, THE BLUE LIGHT, THE RAVEN, THE GOLDEN GOOSE, THE WATER OF LIFE, THE TWELVE HUNTSMEN, THE KING OF THE GOLDEN MOUNTAIN, DOCTOR KNOWALL, THE SEVEN RAVENS, THE WEDDING OF MRS FOX, THE SALAD, THE STORY OF THE YOUTH WHO WENT FORTH TO LEARN WHAT FEAR WAS, KING GRISLY-BEARD, IRON HANS, CAT-SKIN, SNOW-WHITE AND ROSE-RED etc.
