* In the middle of Europe, in the middle of the twentieth century, the Nazi and Soviet regimes murdered fourteen million people in a zone of death between Berlin and Moscow. * These were the bloodlands - today's Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, western Russia and the eastern Baltic coast. In a twelve-year period - 1933 to 1945 - as a result of deliberate polices unrelated to combat, an average of more than a million civilians were murdered annually. At the end of the Second World War the bloodlands fell behind the iron curtain, leaving their history in darkness. * In this revelatory book Timothy Snyder offers a groundbreaking investigation of Europe's killing fields and a sustained explanation of the motives and methods of both Hitler and Stalin. He anchors the history of Hitler's Holocaust and Stalin's Terror in their time and place and provides a fresh account of the relationship between the two regimes. Using scholarly literature and primary sources in all relevant languages, Snyder pays special attention to the testimony of the victims: the letters home, the notes flung from trains, the diaries found on corpses. * Brilliantly researched, profoundly humane, authoritative and original, Bloodlands re-examines the greatest tragedy in European history and forces us to rethink our past.

Timothy Snyder uncovers the brutal history of how first Hitler's Nazis and then Stalin carved up Ukraine. The mass executions and forced famines, evacuations to certain death in Siberian camps, were never forgotten. Re-occupation by ethnic Russians may have taken eastern territories from Ukraine, but not the memories. Snyder's ongoing work on Ukraine can still be found in The New York Review of Books (nybooks.com) and elsewhere.

A riveting and informative account of a tragic time in a region that saw two forms of totalitarian dictatorships. An exceptional read indeed.

A Game Changer
Snyder's research is exhaustive, his thesis unique, and his writing superb. After reading this, you will never think of WWII in the same way again.

Because of the content, it's difficult for me to finish this book, though it's well-written.
