The victorious alliance whose armies occupied Germany in 1945 was in an unprecedented position. Having proclaimed their struggle as a crusade against evil, they were committed to avenging the crimes of the Nazis and to the creation of a more just society. Sadly, although the rhetoric of British and American leaders had promised much, it was not supported by preparation or organisation. The author shows how quickly the crusade against the Nazis soon collapsed in the post-war years to be replaced by realpolitik. The black boards show shelf ware on the edges. The text block shows spotting on the page egdes. tThe DJ also shows light shelfware.
