Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II by Keith LoweRead about the other books on the list.
How do you end a war? A peace treaty often means nothing for the millions displaced, injured, and seeking revenge, as Lowe brilliantly shows in his history of ravaged Europe after the end of World War II. The relative success of the European Union seems all the more remarkable in light of what he describes.
