Fascinating

A riveting and informative account of a tragic time in a region that saw two forms of totalitarian dictatorships. An exceptional read indeed.

A Game Changer

Snyder's research is exhaustive, his thesis unique, and his writing superb. After reading this, you will never think of WWII in the same way again.
