Europe in the Aftermath of World War IIeBook - 2012
A compelling look at the dark, violent days that enveloped Europe after WWII ended and anarchy reignedThe aftermath of World War II was one of the most tumultuous periods of European history. Individuals, communities and sometimes whole nations sought vengeance against the Germans and their collaborators who were rounded up, tormented and summarily executed. Concentration camps were reopened; violent anti-semitism was reborn, sparking murders and pogroms; and massacres, an integral part of the postwar landscape, led to brutal civil wars. In some of the greatest acts of ethnic cleansing ever seen, millions were expelled from their ancestral homelands, often with the implicit blessing of the Allied authorities. Savage Continent is the story of post WWII Eruope in all its ugly detail. Based on primary sources from a dozen countries, Savage Continent sets the standard for history books on of post-WWII Europe for years to come.
