    At the end of World War II, the Soviet Union to its surprise and delight found itself in control of a huge swath of territory in Eastern Europe. Stalin and his secret police set out to convert a dozen radically different countries to Communism, a completely new political and moral system. In Iron Curtain, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anne Applebaum describes how the Communist regimes of Eastern Europe were created and what daily life was like once they were complete.

    jackifus says: "Important story, imperfectly executed"
    "Quite long and a bit repetitive"

    What disappointed you about Iron Curtain?

    I was hoping this would be an insightful piece about an interesting period of history but instead it was a depressing litany of numbers and dates without revealing the human side of the issue


    What was most disappointing about Anne Applebaum’s story?

    Not enough story - all seemed quite one sided - obviously horrible things happened but there was no attempt to understand why


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was good
