    Europe in 1945 was prostrate. Much of the continent was devastated by war, mass slaughter, bombing and chaos. Large areas of Eastern Europe were falling under Soviet control, exchanging one despotism for another. Today, the Soviet Union is no more and the democracies of the European Union reach as far as the borders of Russia itself. Postwar tells the rich and complex story of how we got from there to here. Running right up to the Iraq war and the election of Benedict XVI, Postwar makes sense of Europe's recent history and ... Show more

Postwar

by WayneB on Apr 30, 2009

The best book on WWII that I have read. Mr. Judt had incredible background knowledge on every one of the countries, both before and after the war, and goes over each ones strategy is detail for the rebuilding. His style, knowledge, facts and details are superb, and he tells it all very eloquently. I have read many books on WWII, all mostly about what took place during the actual event. This book is about the aftermath, which by comparison, is definitely the more complicated. It takes some time to read because you have to slow down and put things in their proper perspective, but the bottom line is this is a must read for anyone wanting to understand how and why the world developed into what it is today.

What Really did happen after the shooting

by davidrasch on Jan 9, 2009

This is the first post war Europe book I've read. I was stationed in Eurpoe in the early 70, in Germany, so I had some idea of the topic. The author filled in the gaps between what I saw and what I thought I saw. Put me in some mind of DeTuqueville's narrative of the difference between North and South at their border. The true and real stoery is how the individual answered and lived with their answers to the conflict and its aftermath. A really good read.

Europe's History 1945-2005

by milomilo on Jul 10, 2008

Can't be praised more highly. Narrative clear and gripping, analysis full of insight but easy to follow, coverage comprehensive, and little prior knowledge needed to follow it.
