A fair account of history, 9 May 2007
This is yet another excellent book by Mr. Davies. You will not find in it too many details on tactics, strategies and military operations, however you will find facts that have often escaped the attention of Europeans from the western part of our continents - that the Second World War was really an unfinished business from the first one, that it was, first of all - a clash of two totalitarian regimes, that have enslaved its nations, not only physically but also mentally. A sad account of systems that caused pain and suffering not only to other respective nations but also to its own people (especially Soviets). This book shows as well, how the West left East Europe to Soviet gangsters in the end.
