5.0 out of 5 stars The Long Road Home, 10 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Long Road Home: The Aftermath of the Second World War: Relief and Refugees After the Second World War (Hardcover)
For anyone with an interest,in the Second World War and what resulted from it, this is a compelling read. The euphemism chosen to describe those who lost country, home, family was "Displaced Person". These unfortunates met with more trials and tribulations, before they regained a place in the real world. The book tells many of their stories, and the effects they had on the post war world.

As a young national serviceman in Germany in the 1950s I saw many 'displaced persons' who were working for the British Army. Dressed in dark blue fatigues and forage caps, they were employed in menial or sometimes dangerous jobs. To my shame I never really stopped to think where they had come from and what sort of tribulations they had faced, let alone try to engage them in conversation. So I'll certainly read this book!
