Victims of Yalta: The Secret Betrayal of the Allies, 1944–1947

'“Finally the history of a cruel betrayal on the part of the West of millions of helpless people is being told and exposed. Exposure can no longer save any of the victims, but it can be a warning for the future.”—Alexander Solzhenitsyn “One of the darkest blots on the British record is the forcible repatriation of very large numbers of Soviet citizens at the end of the Second World War. Some committed suicide rather than return. Many were murdered the moment they reached Soviet soil. Many more died in camps in appalling conditions. This is harrowing reading not only because of the suffering of the victims but also because of the cold blindness of the officials and politicians who sent them to their fate.” —The Times (London)  “A sordid picture of British hypocrisy and complicity with Stalinist terror. Passionate and copiously documented.” —Newsweek “A full and profoundly disturbing account. He seems to have inherited a gift from Leo Tolstoy.” —The Economist “Majestic and harrowing. No humane person could fail to be disturbed.” —The Spectator'
