Germany's return to humanity and prosperity is the hinge on which Europe's twentieth century turned. For years we have concentrated on how Europe slid into tyranny, violence, war and genocide; this book describes how humanity began to get back out. GERMANY 1945 is a masterful analysis of one of the most crucial turning points in twentieth-century European history.
