A Solid Overview and Foundation for Further Study
Reviewed in the United States on April 19, 2020
"The Lost Peace" is a very good summary of the developments after World War II among the victorious nations. After what may have been a brief honeymoon period, the relationships quickly deteriorated into various struggles, diplomatic and military. I found the book to be objectivly historically accurate compared to my past studies. The analysis is reasonable, but by necessity, subjective.
I purchased both the Kindle and audiobook and read and listened simultaneously. The audiobook is faithful to the written text and is clearly narrated. The Kindle has footnotes not available on the audiobook.
In terms of a product, how one feels about this book may depend on what one is looking for within. Obviously many volumes can be, and have been written on the subjects within this book. By necessity a book of this length on this timeframe must be an overview. If one is unfamiliar with this timeframe, this book is a very good introduction. For a student of history this book may provide a basis for further study. This is especially true for the Kindle or hard copy with footnotes. As an amateur history student generally familiar with this time, I found the actual events accurately depicted and I still learned some facts. If you are highly familiar with the history of this period, you may find much of this work a rehash of what you already know. That was my personal experience.
In summary I liked this book and feel it is a high quality product. The audiobook is clearly narrated and faithful to the hard copy. This is a high quality summary and overview. I feel it provides a good foundation for further study. Thank You...
