The victorious alliance whose armies occupied Germany in 1945 was in an unprecedented position.

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.
