By Heinrich August Winkler

Kriege, Krisen, Katastrophen – die Jahre zwischen 1914 und 1945 erscheinen manchen Zeitgenossen wie ein zweiter dreißigjähriger Krieg. Sie sind das «deutsche Kapitel» in der Geschichte des Westens und das schrecklichste Kapitel in der Geschichte der Menschheit. Heinrich August Winkler schildert mit meisterhafter Darstellungskunst die dramatischsten Jahrzehnte des 20. Jahrhunderts – vom Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs bis zur deutschen Kapitulation im Mai 1945 und den Atombomben von Hiroshima und Nagasaki drei Monate später.

«Der zweite Band dieses epischen Werkes ist eine außergewöhnliche travel de strength – ein ebenso gewaltiges wie kenntnisreiches landscape der westlichen Welt im Zeitalter ihrer größten Katastrophe.»
Ian Kershaw

«Eine ineinander verwobene Politikgeschichte der europäischen Großmächte und der Vereinigten Staaten. (…) Eine Darstellung, wie guy sie klüger, genauer und umfassender kaum denken kann.»
Ulrich Herbert, FAZ

«Heinrich August Winkler ist mit dem zweiten Band seiner ‚Geschichte des Westens’ über die Zeit von 1914 bis 1945 eine große Erzählung gelungen.»
Peer Steinbrück, Der Spiegel
