THE FEAR AND THE FREEDOM

 

The Second World War was one of the most catastrophic events in human history. But how did the experience and memory of bloodshed affect our lives?

The world that emerged after 1945 was entirely different to the world that had gone to war. The European empires were swept away, and replaced with two new superpowers in a new, global Cold War. Scientists had delivered new technologies, politicians had begun to fantasize about overhauled societies, some argued for global government, others for independence. The postwar era was one of wonder and terror, and it resonates in the arguments about nationalism, immigration and globalisation that we have today.

The Fear and the Freedom uses individual stories to show how leaders and ordinary people coped with the post-war world and turned one of the greatest traumas in history into an opportunity for change.  It is the definitive exploration of the aftermath of WWII – and the impact it still has……. to read more click here

Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II

 

The Second World War left Europe in a state of chaos. In this groundbreaking history of the aftermath of the war, Keith Lowe describes a continent still racked by violence and lawlessness. He outlines the insatiable urge for vengeance that was the legacy of the war; the ethnic cleansing and civil conflict that tore apart the lives of ordinary people everwhere; and the establishment of a new world order that finally brought stability to a shattered continent.  These were themes, he shows, that existed across the whole of Europe – east and west.

 

Based on original documents, interviews and scholarly literature in eight languages, Savage Continent is a window on the brief, chaotic period between the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War.  It is the first major history of the aftermath of the war in any language.......to read more click here.

Inferno: The Devastation of Hamburg, 1943

The Hamburg firestorm was one of the most terrifying acts of destruction the world has ever seen. In this critically-acclaimed history, Keith Lowe describes how desperate families survived both the bombing of Hamburg and the superheated, hurricane-force winds that swept the city afterwards. The fires caused by the bombing were so huge they burned for a month, and were visible for 200 miles.

Based on interviews, letters, diaries, official reports and captured German documents, Inferno is the first comprehensive account of the Hamburg firestorm for almost thirty years.  "Facts and figures cannot do justice to the sheer horror of what happened to Hamburg in July 1943. But Keith Lowe's admirable book, which is impeccably researched and engagingly written, is full of moving little details and stories. A thoroughly engaging and sobering book. There are rather too many military histories of the Second World War, but this one deserves its place on the shelves." – Dominic Sandbrook, Daily Telegraph .......to read more click here.
