9781880622025: Blitzkrieg and Books: British and European Libraries As Casualties of World War II
From Library Journal:

Stubbings has written an eye-opening account of the heroic efforts made by European librarians in the face of Hitler's war machine. Despite the tremendous loss of books (estimated at 57 percent of the pre-war European book stock) and buildings, librarians struggled to protect books from confiscation and keep libraries open. The recounting of resistance in each country, taken from memoirs by the librarians themselves, is preceded by a review of German efforts to control access to books and libraries. The final section on Germany itself includes a look at the little-known post-war efforts to "repatriate" confiscated books found in German caches. Stubbings's readable style makes this work accessible to the general public. Recommended. Bibliography, index, and maps not seen.
