Publikace: Savage Continent - Keith Lowe. The Second World War might have officially ended in May 1945, but

in reality it rumbled on for another ten years...

The end of the Second World War in Europe is one of the twentieth

century’s most iconic moments. It is fondly remembered as a time

when cheering crowds filled the streets, danced, drank and made

love until the small hours. These images of victory and celebration

are so strong in our minds that the period of anarchy and civil war

that followed has been forgotten. Across Europe, landscapes had

been ravaged, entire cities razed and more than thirty million

people had been killed in the war. The institutions that we now

take for granted - such as the police, the media, transport, local

and national government - were either entirely absent or hopelessly

compromised. Crime rates were soaring, economies collapsing, and

the European population was hovering on the brink of

starvation.

In 'Savage Continent,' Keith Lowe describes a continent still

racked by violence, where large sections of the population had yet

to accept that the war was over. Individuals, communities and

sometimes whole nations sought vengeance for the wrongs that had

been done to them during the war. Germans and collaborators

everywhere were rounded up, tormented and summarily executed.

Concentration camps were reopened and filled with new victims who

were tortured and starved. Violent anti-Semitism was reborn,

sparking murders and new pogroms across Europe. Massacres were an

integral part of the chaos and in some places – particularly

Greece, Yugoslavia and Poland, as well as parts of Italy and France

– they led to brutal civil wars. In some of the greatest acts of

ethnic cleansing the world has ever seen, tens of millions were

expelled from their ancestral homelands, often with the implicit

blessing of the Allied authorities.

'Savage Continent' is the story of post WWII Europe, in all its

ugly detail, from the end of the war right up until the

establishment of an uneasy stability across Europe towards the end

of the 1940s. Based principally on primary sources from a dozen

countries, Savage Continent is a frightening and thrilling

chronicle of a world gone mad, the standard history of post WWII

Europe for years to come. Publikace: Savage Continent - Keith Lowe. Keith Lowe's "Savage Continent" is an awe-inspiring portrait of how Europe emerged from the ashes of WWII. The end of the Second World War saw a terrible explosion of violence across Europe. Prisoners murdered jailers. Soldiers visited atrocities on civilians.

Exploring a Europe consumed by vengeance, "Savage Continent" is a shocking portrait of an until-now unacknowledged time of lawlessness and terror. "Deeply harrowing, distinctly troubling. Moving, measured and provocative. A compelling and plausible pictu
