Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin
Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be compulsory reading....., 24 Jan 2011
....for every single politician and budding politician out there. Bloodlands is probably the best history book I have ever read. Compelling reading presenting the macro view as well as the human detail in a balanced manner. The book puts the Holocaust in the context of the wider mass murder that was perpetrated in this part of Europe by Hitler and Stalin and many other Nationalist groups. The growth of the Holocaust deniers would be seriously impaired if more people read this sad indictment on the evil that was allowed to flourish in the 30's+40's. Learn from the past so not to allow the same mistakes to be made.
