This product is currently sold out.

More than nine million Germans, soldiers and civilians died as a result of Allied starvation and expulsion policies in the first five years after the Second World War - deaths which are still being concealed and denied, especially by Western governments.

Crimes and mercies is the extraordinary story of what happened to these people and why. The first English-speaking writer to gain access to the newly-opened KGB archives in Moscow, and to recently declassified information from the renowned Hoover Institution in California, James Bacque found new proof of the mass deaths of prisoners on the road and in Allied prison camps - where food parcels were barred and children were enslaved. But he also charts the remarkable effort make by a group of Western leaders to bring help to the Germans, in a good-aid program that saved millions of lives around the world during three years of struggle against famine. Never before had such revenge been known. Never before had such compassion been shown.
