After the most devastating war in human history, how did the world emerge from the wreckage? Drawing on hundreds of eye-witness accounts and personal stories, this study focuses on the immediate aftermath of the Second World War: the months following the surrender of the Axis powers. It begins with the liberation of the camps and surveys the problems of repatriation, hunger, revenge, war crimes tribunals and military occupation, but also the restoration of democracy and the start of the UN.
