51mKUZCa8qL._SL500_AA240_.jpg Displayed with the permission of the author I read Crimes and Mercies: The Fate of German Civilians under Allied Occupation, 1944-1950 first, though it was published in 2007, eight years after Other Losses. I purchased it immediately after reading After the Reich by Giles MacDonogh (the book that opened up a "whole new world" to me and led me on to purchasing other books about the period 1945 to 1950) as my interest initially was what had been done to German civilians in Germany, which then progressed to what had been done to the Ethnic Germans from the Eastern territories and other countries where they resided, with this leading on to what had been done to German POWs. This book is shocking in what it exposes with regard to the way that German civilians were treated after the fighting stopped. James Bacque's website can be found here: NB: Opens in a new window
