Topic - Michael Burleigh
In the decades after World War II, much of the world feared a calamitous nuclear confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union. Ultimately, the Cold War remained cold, and the peace was disturbed primarily by a succession of brush-fire wars that often were irrelevant to the superpowers' rivalry.
Evil is a word that seems to have fallen out of current usage. The eminent British historian, Michael Burleigh, however, doesn't shy away from using it and describes in bone-chilling detail its manifestations in his latest book, "Moral Combat: Good and Evil in World War II."
Mr. Burleigh writes with engaging wit, but rarely analyzes his complex insurgencies in depth.
Michael Burleigh, a Briton who has written extensively about war in the 20th century, takes the reader on a tour of conflicts ranging in size from the Huk uprising in the Philippines to the Korean War.
