Between Two Fires: Europe's Path In The 1930s

By David C. Large

Norton, 1990, 425 pp.

Eight carefully reconstructed episodes from the Europe of the 1930s, almost all illustrative of the grim prelude to later horror. This successful piece of popular, highly readable history includes chapters on Hitler's and Stalin's purges, on Mussolini's conquest of Ethiopia, and on the bombing of Guernica.
