O du Mörderische (Befrieidgend)
O du Mörderische - Anne George,Christiane Filius-Jehne

Die zwei Schwestern Patricia Anne und Mary Alice sind grundverschiedene Charaktere. Zusammen beschließen sie, die Weihnachtsfeier einer Galerie zu besuchen. Einen Tag nach ihrem Besuch hört Patricia in den Nachrichten, dass Mercy, die Besitzerin der Galerie, die Patricia und Mary am Vorabend noch besucht haben, tot aufgefunden wurde. Die Todesursache soll ein Herzinfarkt gewesen sein. So richtig können Patricia und Mary das nicht glauben und finden sich in der Lösung des Falles wieder.

 

In insgesamt 18 Kapiteln erzählt Anne George in ihrem Roman “O du Mörderische” einen Krimi, rund um die zwei Schwestern Patricia und Anne. Wie man bei dem Titel schon vermuten kann, spielt die Handlung dabei in der Weihnachtszeit, weshalb sich das Buch besonders um Weihnachten rum lohnt, zu lesen. Erzählt wird das Buch dabei aus der Sicht der jüngeren der beiden Schwestern.

Eigentlich ein Fest der Besinnlichkeit, entwickelt sich in dem Buch die Weihnachtszeit doch etwas anders, wie sich die zwei Schwestern vorgestellt haben. Hier könnte dann ein wirklich toller Krimi beginnen, besonders weil die Protagonisten viel Potenzial haben. Leider wird, zumindest was den Krimi angeht, kaum etwas von dem genutzt, was man zur Verfügung hatte. Eher zufällig schlittert die Protagonistin in die Ermittlungen der Polizei, wobei das ein wenig aufgesetzt wirkt und ich mich eher gefragt habe, wieso die Polizei überhaupt auf die Protagonistin zugeht und ihr so viel Freiraum lässt, was die Ermittlungen angeht. Auch im weiteren Verlauf der Handlung ist der Mord eher eine Nebenhandlung.

Was mir dann aber doch positiv gefallen hat, sind eben die zwei wirklich gut gewählten Charaktere. Besonders der Umgang, der nicht immer nur freundlich und nett ist, der beiden miteinander, aber auch die Dialoge sorgten immer mal wieder für einen kleinen Schmunzler. Eigentlich kann man sagen, geht es in dem Buch um die Beziehung zwischen den beiden Charakteren. Als Aufhänger hierfür dient dann eben der kaum beachtete Mordfall.

Zum Ende des Buches, wird die Handlung dann doch noch versöhnlich und passend zu Weihnachten, auch wenn die Auflösung des Mordes, etwas schnell und unlogisch abgehandelt wird.

 

Cover: Das Cover vom Taschenbuch ist in der Farbe Rot gehalten. Hier passt die Farbgebung zum weihnachtlichen Rahmen, in dem der Roman spielt. Auch sonst erkennt man die Weihnachtszeit an weiteren Details wie beispielsweise dem kleinen Baum, welcher auf der Kommode steht. Ansonsten sehen wir zwei Frauen, die vor einem Kamin stehen und anstoßen. Hier sieht man die zwei Protagonisten, von denen eine durch die Handlung des Romans führt. 

Im Großen und Ganzen gefällt mir das Cover von “O du Mörderische” recht gut. Es spiegelt Aspekte der Handlung wieder und zeigt die zwei Protagonisten des Romans.

 

Fazit: “O du Mörderische” ist kein wirklich guter Krimi, weshalb ich das Buch eher als kriminalistisch angehaucht bezeichnen würde. Im Mittelpunkt stehen ganz klar die zwei Schwestern, wodurch das Buch doch noch Spaß beim Lesen machte. Durch den tollen und gut zu lesenden Schreibstil der Autorin lässt sich das Buch flüssig und schnell lesen.

Wer zur Weihnachtszeit nach einem Buch sucht, kann sich gerne die Zeit nehmen, sollte allerdings keinen krassen Krimi erwarten (hier gibt es deutlich bessere Bücher).

Für kurzweilige Unterhaltung sorgt “O du Mörderische” aber dann doch. Ich komme am Ende allerdings nur auf solide 3/5 Sternen.

The general who built an army
George C. Marshall: Ordeal and Hope: 1939-1942 - Forrest C. Pogue

As the fifteenth Chief of Staff of the United States Army, George Catlett Marshall oversaw the transformation of the United States Army from a modest constabulary into an organization capable of waging war on a truly global scale. Though such a metamorphosis was due to the efforts of thousands of people working over the course of many years, as Forrest Pogue demonstrates in the second volume of his biography of the general and statesman Marshall’s contribution was key to the development of the Army into a force that would play a vital role in defeating the Axis powers and establishing the United states as a global superpower.

 

This was no small achievement, nor was it an easy one. As Pogue notes, Marshall would regard his two years of service as Chief of Staff as the most difficult of his tenure, far more so than the four years he spent in the post during the war itself. Much of this had to do with the dimensions of the task before him. When Marshall took up the post in September 1939, the Army was both under-funded and under-strength, limited by postwar disillusionment and financial constraints. Nor did the outbreak of war in Europe suddenly change everyone’s thinking. As late as April 1940, members of Congress questioned the need to expand the ground forces, believing that the low-intensity “phony war” that developed after the fall of Poland was easily avoidable. Only after their invasion of Denmark and Norway made German intentions clear did Congressional opposition to spending for a larger force finally evaporate.

 

Yet Marshall gained his money at the expense of time. In short order he was expected to develop a fighting force capable of deterring or defeating any German threat. Nor did the now-expanded budget solve the Army’s problems, as Marshall had to cope with the competing need to support the British in their ongoing war against Germany for weapons production. Even more problematic was the widespread reluctance of many Americans to serve in the rapidly-expanding Army for one moment longer than they were required to by the draft, a sentiment to which many powerful politicians were sensitive. So how did Marshall surmount these challenges?

 

Pogue makes it clear that foremost among Marshall’s attributes was a Herculean work ethic, as he dedicated nearly every day to the duties of his office. To the task he also brought considerable diplomatic skill and a sensitivity to the limits of what was possible, enabling him to navigate skillfully the formidable politics that were part of his job. Finally, there was his eye for talent, as he had an extraordinary ability to identify men of ability and a determination to place them in the posts where they could make the best use of their skills. Often this meant promoting them over older men of longer service, many of whom Marshall knew personally. That Marshall was willing to turn friends into enemies in order to prepare the Army for what lay ahead is perhaps the best evidence of his determination to succeed in his mission.

 

These efforts, though, were outpaced by events. Pogue spends a considerable amount of space detailing Marshall’s role in the events leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, with the goal of rebutting the claims that he was part of a conspiracy to bring the United States into the war. Nevertheless, Pogue acknowledges the limits of Marshall’s conceptualization of the Japanese threat, noting that he overestimated the Army’s Hawai’ian defenses and underestimated the ability of the Japanese to attack him. The months that followed were especially tragic, as Marshall watched with despair as the Army units stationed in the Philippines were defeated by the Japanese. Yet this did not deflect him from his commitment to the “Germany first” focus adopted before the war, as he worked strenuously to launch a second front in France as early as 1942. Though Marshall was frustrated in this by the British (whom, as Pogue notes, would have borne the brunt of such an early effort), by the end of America’s first year of the war he could look with hope to the victories he knew would soon come.

 

Benefiting from interviews with Marshall and his contemporaries as well as considerable archival research, Pogue’s book serves as an effective monument to his subject and his achievements as Chief of Staff. Though focused on detail, it provides more analysis of its subject than Pogue’s previous volume, Education of a General, which helps to explain Marshall’s motivations and the thinking underlying them. While further analysis would have made for an even better book, given Pogue’s proximity to many of the key figures he describes he may have felt a little too constrained to offer the sort of judgments the facts he describes seem to demand, Nonetheless, his book is a valuable resource on both Marshall and his achievements, one that will likely remain required reading on the general for many years to come.
