Iron Curtain - Crushing of Eastern Europe

http://www.amazon.com/Iron-Curtain-C...eastern+europe

Fantastic read using Poland, Hungary, and DDR as case studies! I'm only 12% through reading on my Kindle and can't put it down. Great history of Soviet invasion/liberation/subjugation with discussion of politics, creation of national NKVD-inspired secret police, etc.

Re: Iron Curtain - Crushing of Eastern Europe

Thanks Paul, just got my copy from Amazon. I've been looking for a good non-fiction book lately. Here it is with a few other notable mentions. ;)

Re: Iron Curtain - Crushing of Eastern Europe

I'm only a quarter of the way through the book and it just keeps getting better. I'm just afraid of someone using this as a play book for the future.
