Captivating and insightful,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Year Zero: A History of 1945 (Hardcover)
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.
