From the cover: “Postwar tells the story of how today's Europe — that astonishingly prosperous and cohesive community of nations — emerged from the chaos and debris of World War II. The book opens on VE Day in 1945 and ends with the establishment of the EEC in 1957. During those dozen years history took one of its giant forward leaps. Old rivalries were submerged as the peoples of Western Europe set about creating a new mode of life for themselves.”
