Abstract This compelling book on Hitler & Stalin - the culmination of thirty years' work - examines the two tyrants during the Second World War, when they fought the biggest and bloodiest war in history. Yet despite the fact they were bitter opponents, Laurence Rees shows that Hitler and Stalin were, to a large extent, different sides of the same coin. And while Hitler's creation of the Holocaust remains a singular crime, Rees shows why we must not forget that Stalin committed a series of atrocities at the same time. Using previously unpublished, startling eyewitness testimony from soldiers of the Red Army & Wehrmacht, civilians who suffered during the conflict and those who knew both men personally, Rees challenges long-held popular misconceptions about two of the most important figures in history.
