Originally published: UK: Viking, 2020
This compelling book on Hitler and Stalin - the culmination of 30 years' work - examines the two tyrants during WWII, when Germany and the Soviet Union fought the biggest and bloodiest war in history. Yet despite the fact they were bitter opponents, Laurence Rees shows that Hitler and Stalin were, to a large extent, different sides of the same coin. Hitler's charismatic leadership may contrast with Stalin's regimented rule by fear; and his intransigence later in the war may contrast with Stalin's change in behaviour in response to events. But at a macro level, both were prepared to create undreamt-of suffering, destroy individual liberty and twist facts in order to build the utopias they wanted, and while Hitler's creation of the Holocaust remains a singular crime, Rees shows why we must not forget that Stalin committed a series of atrocities at the same time.

Book:The Holocaust, a new history:2017 Book
Author: Rees, Laurence
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Viking
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Laurence Rees' text is revealing in three ways. First, it is based not only on the latest academic research, but also on 25 years of interviewing survivors and perpetrators, often at the sites of the events, many of whom have never had their words published before. Second, the book is not just about the Jews - the Nazis would have murdered many more non-Jews had they won the war - and not just about Germans. Third, as Rees shows, there was no single 'decision' to start the Holocaust - there was a series of escalations, most often when the Nazi leadership interacted with their grassroots supporters.
xv, 509 pages, 24 unnumbered pages of plates, illustrations (black and white, and colour), maps (black and white) ; 24 cm (hbk)
