Product description

Review

"It's amazing, a really fine achievement and has a wonderful balance between argument and narration, where the individual stories draw the reader into the moral and emotional complexities, while the sense of structure and proportion gives it a very strong sense of being in safe hands" (Nick Stargardt, author of 'Witnesses of War')

"A thoughtful retelling of an important and timely story" (Alan Allport Literary Review)

"(Even today, thousands of people displaced by the Second World War remain unaccounted for)The Long Road Home speaks for them by proxy and with proper sympathy" (Ian Thompson Sunday Telegraph)

"[A] well researched and comprehensive account" (Caroline Moorehead Spectator)

"Excellent book... his research is meticulous" (Independent)

Review

‘Excellent…his research is meticulous. He writes well with a keen eye for detail. His judgments are trenchant and he dishes out praise and blame with an even hand…What emerges most strikingly is the intricate mixture of motives behind the rescue of post-war Europe’
--Piers Brendon, Independent

‘To do the subject justice…requires an in-depth knowledge of a vast number of topics…It requires a feel for ethnic and religious sensitivities, as well as a profound compassion for the plight of millions of people affected by the war. Ben Shephard has these qualities in spades, accompanied by a rare gift for condensing huge amounts of primary research into manageable chapter…Difficult to seen how it could be bettered’. --Keith Lowe, Daily Telegraph

‘Deeply impressive…well-researched, well-written and often moving’ --Andrew Roberts, New Statesman

‘In this excellent history, Shephard unforgettably conveys the post-war refugee crisis and its aftermath. Even today, thousands of DPs remain unaccounted for or, in the Red Cross parlance, 'dispersed’. The Long Road Home speaks for them by proxy and with proper sympathy.’
--Ian Thomson, Sunday Telegraph

‘This enthralling story about how wars do not stutter out but take generations to fix …deals with big issues and human suffering on a scale which is different from the now well rehearsed and widely avilable accounts of the Holocaust…Ben Shephard’s uniformly excellent history shows that reconciliation and closure for war’s victims are possible, but they require imagination, planning, and endless hard work’
--Trevor Royle, Sunday Herald

‘Absorbing and deftly researched…a thoughtful retelling of an important and timely story’ --Alan Allport, Literary Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
