Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin

Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Americans call the Second World War “The Good War.” But before it even began, America’s wartime ally Josef Stalin had killed millions of his own citizens—and kept killing them during and after the war. Before Hitler was finally defeated, he had murdered six million Jews and nearly as many other Europeans. At war’s end, both the German and the Soviet killing sites fell behind the iron curtain, leaving the history of mass killing in darkness.

Bloodlands is a new kind of European history, presenting the mass murders committed by the Nazi and Stalinist regimes as two aspects of a single history, in the time and place where they occurred: between Germany and Russia, when Hitler and Stalin both held power. Assiduously researched, deeply humane, and utterly definitive, Bloodlands will be required reading for anyone seeking to understand the central tragedy of modern history.

Synopsis:

Describes how fourteen million people were murdered by Hitler's and Stalin's regimes in the area between Germany and Russia during the time when both men were in power and examines the motives and methods behind the mass murders.
