At the end of the Second World War, the Soviet Union unexpectedly found itself in control of a huge swathe of territory in Eastern Europe. Stalin and his secret police set out to convert a dozen radically different countries to a completely new political and moral system- Communism. Anne Applebaum’s landmark history of this brutal time shows how societies were ruthlessly eviscerated by Communist regimes, how opposition was destroyed and what life was like for ordinary people who had to choose whether to fight, to flee or to collaborate. Iron Curtain is an exceptional work of historical and moral reckoning, and a haunting reminder of how fragile freedom can be. Chosen 16 times as a ‘Book of the Year’ – The top Non-Fiction pick of 2012 ‘The best work of modern history I have ever read.’ A. N. Wilson, Financial Times ‘The outstanding book of the year . . . a masterpiece.’ Oliver Kamm, The Times, Books of the Year ‘Exceptionally important, wise, perceptive, remarkably objective.’ Antony Beevor ‘Explains in a manner worthy of Arthur Koestler what totalitarianism really means . . . it is a window into a world of lies and evil that we can hardly imagine.’ Edward Lucas, Standpoint ‘At last the story can be told . . . a magisterial history.’ Orlando Figes, Mail on Sunday
