Latvia in the Wars of the 20th Century
Latvia in the Wars of the 20th Century
By Visvaldis Mangulis
Cognition Books, 1983, 228 pp

A primer of Latvia's tragic history, written from the nationalist viewpoint and using numerous Latvian sources. Most of it, as the title suggests, is on the events of the two world wars, with only cursory attention to the two decades of independence in between and to the Soviet period since 1945.
