This book packs an emotional punch. Slavishly researched and impeccably written. Engaging and terrifying.

Lots of numbers but still very readable and very eye-opening.

The best book I have ever read. I suggest to anybody who care a little bit of the period to read and understand of the tragedy of the period. There are issues that I was not aware. The book tells the story of the times before the WWII and those impact on the starting the WWII. Comment by Illya Osherov

a devastating account of the not 6 but 14 million people, a still conservative estimate, killed by the exterminating regimes of Stalin and Hitler from 1933 to 1945, the larger number kept secret behind the Iron Curtain in the name of course of national security before the demise of the Soviet Union, and an ardent plea by the author himself for the commemoration of each and every invaluable life lost lest we lose ourselves our own humanity
