Description
This book offers a radical reassessment of the aftermath of World War II, considering the events and personalities of that decade in terms of contemporary standards and values. In particular, it shows that the tragic consequences of war were understood not in terms of genocide, but of displacement—of millions of people deprived of their homes and often forced to work for the Germans. As Oxford historian Ben Shephard sensitively recounts here, it took the Allies seven years to resolve this problem. They had to create the state of Israel, alter the whole basis of their immigration policy, and let thousands of war criminals go free.

"In this excellent history, Shephard unforgettably conveys the post-war refugee crisis and its aftermath. Even today, thousands of DPs remain unaccounted for or, in the Red Cross parlance, 'dispersed'. The Long Road Home speaks for them by proxy and with proper sympathy."—Sunday Telegraph (London)
