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.

As a history book this is poorly written. It is mostly a collection of horror stories lumped together by categories. It jumps around in time and place and does not give any sense of the progression of events in any place.

The rumblings and ripples of war do not end with the signing of an armistice. Europe had years and years of unrest and turmoil before things settled down. This significant book follows the politics, social unrest, history, and economies of Europe as a whole and as individual countries. I know that from now on, things I read, watch and hear about World War II will be from a different perspective.
