`… thought-provoking and widely researched study of history-writing since 1945.' - Contemporary European History

`It is a very witty and erudite discussion of what historians in the combatant countries have made of the horrors of the Second War World.' - Scotland on Sunday

`This is an extremely valuable, thought-provoking book. It undertakes an ambitious task of relating the study of history in many countries to the cataclysmic developments of the Second World War - not just the battles fought, but including the rise of fascism, domestic divisions, and atrocities committed at home and abroad … This is an enormously complex story, but the author presents it thoughtfully and imaginatively, always asking the crucial question, how history affects a historian, and how a historian shapes history.' - Akira Iriye, Harvard University
