Product description

Sound of Hunger – 1st edition

One German Family’s Chronicle of the Chivalry, Politics, Lies, Murder and Aftermath of War

Chris Heal

Uniform; Unicorn Publishing Group, London, 2018.

Hardback; 170 x 240 mm; green boards with titles in gold on spine; 754 pages; 12 maps in colour; photographs in black & white. Original unclipped dust jacket.

The book is in fine condition save for one very small closed tear on the back of the dust jacket.

“’Sound of Hunger’ is a true story that centers on two German brothers, Erich and Georg Gerth, u-boat commanders, and the First Word War and its aftermath. The Gerths' lives and careers as navy officers are set against the military, political and social environment of their times. Carefully-nurtured myths of national innocence and guilt are uncovered; discrediting truths and war crimes of both the Allies and Germany are brought into the limelight. This is not conventional history, but a personal view of the events that were integral to the Gerth brothers, to see how they were changed by what they heard, were taught and experienced. ‘Sound of Hunger’ is unashamedly intimate in selection, perhaps eccentric in places; a personal journey that explains what was newly-found, how it was investigated and understood. Whatever you think you know about this war, be prepared to challenge your beliefs.”
