About the Author

Roger Moorhouse is a historian and author specialising in modern German history. He is the co-author, with Norman Davies, of Microcosm- Portrait of a Central European City, and the author of Killing Hitler- The Third Reich and the Plots Against the Fuhrer and The Devil's Alliance- Hitler's Pact with Stalin.


We tend to overlook "the war that Hitler won", but Roger Moorhouse brilliantly underlines its crucial importance for the future course of the Second World War. This deeply researched, very well-written and penetrating book will be the standard work on the subject for many years to come -- Andrew Roberts, author of 'Churchill: Walking with Destiny'
[A] chilling, indignant narrative... Moorhouse has expertly laid bare...[the] truth -- Roger Boyes * The Times *
Moorhouse's book remedies that gap [in history of The Polish War], weaving together archival material, first-hand accounts, perceptive analysis and heartbreaking descriptions of Poland's betrayal, defeat and dismemberment * Economist *
[A] fascinating book... Moorhouse has mastered a large body of material... this is...a very valuable book, as it gathers a mass of detail into a lucid narrative for general readers -- Noel Malcolm * Sunday Telegraph *
An important book. Roger Moorhouse has a wonderful knack of reminding us about the parts of the Second World War that we are in danger of forgetting -- Dan Snow
