5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and Erudite., 2 April 2012
This review is from: Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II (Hardcover)
Savage Continent is an engaging and erudite history of post-war Europe. Keith Lowe's original study starts off where other books leave off. Screams often muffle out any sighs of relief for the war being over - as revenge attacks and unofficial civil wars break out across the continent. This is a bleak but necessary book for anyone who wants to understand both WWII and its aftermath - and also in some aspects Europe today.
Savage Continent is is full of grim statistics and argument, but far more impactful are the testimonies of the soldiers, children and women who lived through the period. The material on the fate of post-war Jewish and Polish people is particularly strong.
