Recommended - a riviting read that is hard to put down.How can fellow human beings resort to such vile behaviour out of revenge? Its hard to believe its not fiction. An engrossing historical account that has to be read

Important book from our past in Europe to understand why we must have deep co-operation in Europe. War is not a play and consequences were horrible to everyone in Europe. Background to understand European Union. Excellent book.

Having been an avid reader of books on the 2nd World War for many years it was great to be able to read about the outcome following peace. A thoroughly enjoyable book. Highly recommended

Very original if gloomy account of 1945. I learnt a lot. I was impressed by its global reach.

Well written book about a period of history one never thinks about.
Yes, the war ended. One side won and the other lost.
Yes, after the war it was all about reconstruction.
But what actually happened during those first few months after may 45? How did people on both sides of the divide begin to readjust to normalcy?
Focuses on the big issues and the small intimate episodes of learning to live again.

It is hard for us to imagine how dreadful the situation was across Europe and the Far East in the aftermath of World War Two. This book gives us a brilliant perspective on what that year was like. A great read.

As a student in year Zero, I was aware of the basics but completely unaware of the enormous scale of events. Well written
