Opis: The Long Night - Steve Wick

Published to widespread media attention, "The Long Night" follows the tremendous journey of legendary American journalist William L. Shirer. During the 1930s, Shirer brought the events in Europe to the English speaking world through his broadcasts on Edward R. Murrow's CBS. Despite the Nazis best attempts to control the airwaves, he broadcast live reports of the Germans annexation of Austria and the occupation of Paris. Unlike other foreign correspondents, Shirer never believed the Nazis and was the first to warn the world of the danger that lay ahead. After the war, Shirer penned the classic The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, published in 1960. Although he left behind diaries of his war years, this is the first biography of the maverick reporter who continues to inspire fleets of journalists and historians.

"It's this Shirer -- the human being, a man of determination and steely nerve -- that Mr. Wick gets onto the pages of his book." --Dwight Garner, "The New York Times"

"Illuminating . . . Wick has done an excellent job in bringing together the man's life and work in this detailed and probing biography." - "The St. Petersburg Times "

""The Long Night" is indeed an adventure story, with short chapters and a fast-paced narrative drive. But Mr. Wick has documented the story with scrupulous attention to detail, too, drawing on Shirer's published works as well as his papers and correspondence." -- "The Wall Street Journal" "Steve Wick makes excellent use of Shirer's letters and papers to chronicle his often fraught relationships . . . A seasoned journalist, Wick knows how to tell a good story, and for long stretches his book reads like a novel . . . [It] has much of interest to say about the life of a foreign correspondent in the war-torn Europe of the 1930s and early 1940s." -- Richard Evans," The New Republic"

"A suspenseful recasting of the same period covered in Berlin Diary, using the published diary but more importantly the original handwritten pages Shirer smuggled out of Berlin . . . Wick has used his resources scrupulously and illuminates, more than does the 1941 book, the heavy personal toll that remaining in Berlin took on Shirer and his family." --"Columbia Journalism Review"

"A gripping account of a courageous journalist's efforts to alert the world to Hitler's plan, and an engaging discussion of the relationship between journalism and personal integrity, which is as relevant today as it was then."--"Kirkus Reviews"

"Wick offers an absorbing and very detailed account, the perfect companion piece to Shirer's masterwork." --"Publishers Weekly"

"Thorough, fast-paced, and absorbing." --"World War II Magazine"

"An intimate portrayal of a pioneering broadcasting icon." -- "Baltimore Jewish Times"
