Summary
The Second World War was one of the most catastrophic events in human history. But how did the experience and memory of bloodshed affect our relationships with each other and the world? The new order, as it emerged after 1945, saw the end of European empires and the birth of two new superpowers, whose wrangling would lead to a new global Cold War. Scientists delivered new technologies, architects planned buildings to rise from the rubble, politicians fantasised about overhauled societies, people changed their nationalities and dreamed of new lives. As well as analyzing the major changes, this book uses the stories of how ordinary people coped with the post-war world and turned one of the greatest traumas in history into an opportunity for change
