5.0 out of 5 stars contagious rage, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Elkins has documented, with contagious rage, this unforgettable history of the Jewish holocaust and of those who fought back - during and particularly after world war 2.
Elkins displays a delicious cynicism toward the apathy of the Allies to the suffering of the Jews of Europe, even after the discovery of the death camps.The reader feels his pulsing anger and outrage running through every paragraph.This is one of the most insightful histories of the period and articulates the horror of the Final solution like nothing i'v read before.
Elkins,personally touched by the story he tells, is a masterful wordsmith and evoker of emotion and does full justice to this most harrowing of tales.
The dramatic difference between this and almost any other book on the Shoa is the story of the fightback that ensued among some survivors of the holocaust in the years immediately after the war.
Elkins tells this history of bombings , poisonings and kidnappings of Death Camp army personal by Jewish ex-camp survivors with breathtaking pace.
A must read.

...but I never knew exactly why until i read this book.
A compelling take-down of one of Irelands saints, on a par with Chris Hitchens expose on Mother Theresa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking expose of the UKs very own KGB, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even the stasi were content to merely listen in on people. Britain's secret state police went one stage further and moved in with the enemy,even starting families with some of them.this is a gripping account of the lengths the state will go to harass vegetarians and other such threats to society. This story should be unbelievable fiction. But it isn't.


The Fall of Japan: A Chronicle of the End of an Empire
The Fall of Japan: A Chronicle of the End of an Empire
by William Craig
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent read, 8 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
harrowing and insightful chronicle of the fall of an Empire
Japans self belief spilled viciously into a deluded arrogance and this made their collapse all the more brutal.
Fascinating account of the wrangling that went on in the Japanese State prior to surrender and the descisive military action that led to it.
