From the Publisher"[T]he first book I have read that explicitly addresses the plight of civilians during the 'crusade for Europe.'...[T]his tale vividly demonstrates that there was no cause for triumphalism in the condition of Europe following the defeat of Hitler."
— Max Hastings, Sunday Times
"Remarkable.... [U]nderlines that the liberation of Europe was both a major military triumph and a human tragedy of epic proportions."
— Irish Times
"A powerful and important new work of history.... [A] thorough, passionate corrective to any simple telling of the terrible last year of this war."
— Financial Times
"The Bitter Road to Freedom is an eloquent presentation of what are too often called war's 'collateral effects.' Chaos, destruction and suffering are not collateral. They are fundamental."
