Product Description

Review

"A powerful and important new work of history.... A thorough, passionate corrective to any simple telling of the terrible last year of this war." -- Financial Times

"An eloquent presentation of what are too often called war's `collateral effects.' Chaos, destruction and suffering are not collateral. They are fundamental."
-- History Book Club

"Remarkable . . . Underlines that the liberation of Europe was both a major military triumph and a human tragedy of epic proportions." -- Irish Times

"The first book I have read that explicitly addresses the plight of civilians during the `crusade for Europe.' ... This tale vividly demonstrates that there was no cause for triumphalism in the condition of Europe following the defeat of Hitler." -- Max Hastings, Sunday Times --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
