Mein Leben

Heute kennt guy Marcel Reich-Ranicki vor allem als wortgewaltigen Kritiker, der über viele Jahre mit der ZDF-Sendung "Das literarische Quartett" Literatur einem breiten Publikum nahe brachte. In seinen Memoiren lernt guy ihn als einen Menschen kennen, dessen Schicksal eng mit dem bedrückendsten Teil der Geschichte dieses Jahrhunderts verknüpft ist.

Ein Deutscher Sommer, die Vergangenheit wird lebendig. Nach zwanzig Jahren im Gefängnis ist er überraschend begnadigt worden. Christiane, seine Schwester, will sein erstes Wochenende in Freiheit mit einem Dutzend adjust Freunde feiern, in einer verfallenen Villa auf dem Land, ohne Reporter und Kameras.

Now the weather becomes even more unpredictable, with hot nights followed by temperatures that dip briefly below freezing. Prolonged droughts raise the fire danger.

Leger had abandoned the siege of Stanwix and begun his retreat to Canada. Burgoyne’s Indian allies, sensing a familiar debacle, began to desert and only a few remained. His proud army was down to 4,000 men, but he ordered it to press on against the Americans. On September 13, it crossed to the west bank of the Hudson. By now Brigadier General Benjamin Lincoln had rounded up 2,500 local and Massachusetts militia at Pawlet. He sent 1,500 of these men to Lake Champlain to attack British supply lines by seizing Skenesborough and Ticonderoga.
