This book is one of the most important and evocative works of the twentieth century, not as a witness to the aftermath of war but as the work of an agile mind that is prepared to look beyond the drab statistics of the drab functionaries who were tasked with a dirty clean up and see what was being covered up by those same functionaries at the behest of the leaders of the victorious allies and their minions, people like Morgenthau and his ilk.

History has now shone a light on their grubby work; it will never be the same again. I have always respected the "kultur Deutsch" and mean no disrepect if I misspelled that. I did not know that our reaction to that culture and country was so ugly and cruel. It would be like us reacting with hatred and antagonism toward all Muslims because of what happened on September 11th. Jan 01, Randall Wallace rated it it was amazing Growing up, we all heard frequently about the 6 million Jews killed by Germans during WWII, but never about the more than 9.

Thus, the Allies deliberately not feeding Germans post-war was not an economic decision, but one of simple vengeance in violation of the Geneva Convention. They say the first victim of war is the truth; that was certainly true for World War Two.

He then pointed out the consequences of inaction and advised as to the solution. At the same time, Herbert Hoover and Canadian Prime Minister MacKenzie King created the largest charity in history, a food-aid program that saved an estimated million lives during three years of global struggle against post—World War II famine—a program they had to struggle for years to make accessible to the German people, who had been excluded from it as a matter of official Allied policy. Both sides treated the prisoners relatively well so long as this hostage system was in effect, but with the return of the German prisoners under the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, the system collapsed, and the Russians still imprisoned in Germany began to starve. Later he became Ambassador to the United States. Not all Germans agreed with what Hitler jajes doing, but little could be done about it.
