The KPD and The Red Orchestra by JJ Toner

Posted by on Aug 22, 2016 in Featured Book, Historical Tidbits, World War Two | 4 comments

Before 1933, the Communist Party of Germany, the KPD, was a significant political party in Germany, with 100 seats in the Reichstag. Their main rivals were the NSDAP, the right wing Nazi Party. Running battles between the two groups were commonplace in the streets of every major city in Germany. On February 27 1933, the parliament building, the Reichstag in Berlin, was burned to the ground. The KPD was blamed for the fire. Describing the arson as the opening salvo in a putative Communist uprising, Adolf Hitler, the newly appointed Chancellor,...

Victorian Shoplifters by M. Louisa Locke

Posted by on Aug 8, 2016 in 19th Century U.S., Featured Book, Historical Research, Historical Tidbits | 3 comments

One of my goals for writing the books in my Victorian San Francisco Mystery series has been to feature occupations held by women in the late 19th century. Consequently, in Maids of Misfortune, Annie, my amateur sleuth, goes undercover as a domestic servant, in Uneasy Spirits, she investigates a fraudulent trance medium, in Bloody Lessons, she tries to find out who is sending poison pen letters about local public school teachers, and in Deadly Proof, she gets caught up in the world of women working in the San Francisco printing industry. In...

The Unexpected Ally by Sarah Woodbury

Posted by on Jul 25, 2016 in Featured Book, Historical Tidbits, Medieval Great Britain | 2 comments

  Stephen de Blois came to London, and the people received him and hallowed him to king on midwinter day. But in this king’s time was all dissension, and evil, and rapine; for against him rose soon the rich men who were traitors. Then was England very much divided. Some held with the king and some with the empress; for when the king was in prison, the earls and the rich men supposed that he would never more come out, and they settled with the empress, and when the king was out, he heard of this, and took his force, and beset her in...
