Virtually every adult in the Western world is by now aware of the barbarities committed by Hitler's Germany. A smaller number recognize that Stalin also was guilty of many atrocities. What Yale professor Timothy Snyder has now provided is a detailed recounting of the massive bloodletting in the lands between Germany and the Soviet Union before and during World War II.
By treating Soviet prisoners abominably, Mr. Snyder writes, Hitler sought to ensure "that German soldiers would fear the same from the Soviets, and so fight desperately to prevent themselves from falling into the hands of the enemy."
"On any given day in the second half of 1941," Mr. Snyder writes, "the Germans shot more Jews than had been killed by pogroms in the entire history of the Russian Empire."
