Reviews

  • "We tend to overlook “the war that Hitler won”, but Roger Moorhouse brilliantly underlines its crucial importance for the future course of the Second World War. This deeply researched, very well-written and penetrating book will be the standard work on the subject for many years to come"

    Andrew Roberts, author of ‘Churchill: Walking with Destiny’
  • "[A] chilling, indignant narrative… Moorhouse has expertly laid bare…[the] truth"

    Roger Boyes, The Times
  • "Moorhouse’s book remedies that gap [in history of The Polish War], weaving together archival material, first-hand accounts, perceptive analysis and heartbreaking descriptions of Poland’s betrayal, defeat and dismemberment"

    Economist
  • "[A] fascinating book… Moorhouse has mastered a large body of material… this is…a very valuable book, as it gathers a mass of detail into a lucid narrative for general readers"

    Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph
  • "An important book. Roger Moorhouse has a wonderful knack of reminding us about the parts of the Second World War that we are in danger of forgetting"
