Description

Americans call the Second World War “The Good War.” But before it even began, America’s wartime ally Josef Stalin had
killed millions of his own citizens—and kept killing them during and after the war. Before Hitler was finally defeated,
he had murdered six million Jews and nearly as many other Europeans. At war’s end, both the German and the Soviet
killing sites fell behind the iron curtain, leaving the history of mass killing in darkness. Bloodlands is a new
kind of European history, presenting the mass murders committed by the Nazi and Stalinist regimes as two aspects of a
single history, in the time and place where they occurred: between Germany and Russia, when Hitler and Stalin both held
power. Assiduously researched, deeply humane, and utterly definitive, Bloodlands will be required reading for anyone
seeking to understand the central tragedy of modern history.
