Bloodlands

Europe between Hitler and Stalin

In the middle of Europe, in the middle of the twentieth century, the Nazi and Soviet regimes murdered fourteen million people in the bloodlands between Berlin and Moscow. In a twelve-year-period, in these killing fields - today's Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Western Russia and the eastern Baltic coast - an average of more than one million citizens were slaughtered every year, as a result of deliberate policies unrelated to combat.

In his revelatory book Timothy Snyder offers a ground-breaking investigation into the motives and methods of Stalin and Hitler and, using scholarly literature and primary sources, pays special attention to the testimony of the victims, including the letters home, the notes flung from trains, the diaries on corpses. The result is a brilliantly researched, profoundly humane, authoritative and original book that forces us to re-examine the greatest tragedy in European history and re-think our past.

"An original, wonderful and horrifying book...this beautifully written and superbly researched work is undoubtedly one of the most important to emerge for a long time"
Zitat
"A superb work of scholarship, full of revealing detail... Snyder does justice to the horror of his subject through the power of his storytelling" Sunday Times "Superb and harrowing history" Financial Times, Books of the Year "An original, wonderful and horrifying book...this beautifully written and superbly researched work is undoubtedly one of the most important to emerge for a long time" -- Anthony Beevor "An excellent, authoritative and imaginative book, which tells the grim story of the greatest human and demographic tragedy in European history with exemplary clarity. Snyder set out to give a human face to the many millions of victims of totalitarianism. He has succeeded admirably" -- Roger Moorhouse BBC History Magazine "Bloodlands - impeccably researched and appropriately sensitive to its volatile material - is the most important book to appear on this subject for decades and will surely become the reference in its field" -- Tony Judt
