    Americans think of World War II as “The Good War”, a moment when the forces of good resoundingly triumphed over evil. Yet the war was not decided by D-day. It was decided in the East, by the Red Army and Joseph Stalin. While conventional wisdom locates the horrors of World War II in the six million Jews killed in German concentration camps, the reality is even grimmer. In 13 years, the Nazi and Soviet regimes killed 13 million people in the lands between Germany and Russia.

    Story

    i learned a fair bit, buts it just gets way too long. you can miss large sections and not feel like anything changed. Yes, it makes you appreciate how bad things got in this area, and gave me a new appreciation for a different aspect/way of looking at this period of history, but could be a lot more succinct. Also the author is pretty full of himself and i would say makes arguments that don't make sense to me...so Auschwitz was both a death camp and a concentration camp, but only the persons that came there as death camp inmmates died, and so the concentration camp portion was not that bad? what kind of sense does that make?
