As a history book this is poorly written. It is mostly a collection of horror stories lumped together by categories. It jumps around in time and place and does not give any sense of the progression of events in any place.

The rumblings and ripples of war do not end with the signing of an armistice. Europe had years and years of unrest and turmoil before things settled down. This significant book follows the politics, social unrest, history, and economies of Europe as a whole and as individual countries. I know that from now on, things I read, watch and hear about World War II will be from a different perspective.
