Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin

Title: Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder

Category: Nonfiction, History

Review: Well it took me 13 days to finish this very interesting book. O_O I know. Usually it doesn’t take me that long. I finished it though. I found Bloodlands a very interesting book. It wasn’t entirely about War World II. It focused on the beginning of 1930’s in Eastern Europe and tells about the famines that the Soviet Union made the people suffer through. The book starts from the 1930’s and goes to the end of the 1980’s. This book informs more about the Soviet side, which is good because I don’t know as much as Stalin. It taught me more about Stalin and the kind of person he was. He and the people of Russia are not innocent regarding the Jews and that is what the book informs us of. It makes us bring up questions in ourselves, which books should do. Read this book. It compares Hitler and Stalin. You can find that the two are not as different as they seem.
