Communism Laid Bare


Milosz is an awardee of the Nobel Prize for literature and better known as a poet. He lived through the 1939-1945 war in Warsaw and saw first hand the destruction wrought by the German army and with other Warsaw citizens witnessed the destruction of their city as the advancing Russian army watched on from the far side of the river, denting the poles any assistance whatever. He knows the communist system, even held a position for a brief time This book lays bare the weaknesses of the system, of Catholicism, and those who transferred their allegiance from democracy to communism. It is not an easy read but pays for the effort; it is a clear-sighted study of the immediate post-war eastern European countries that got swallowed in peoples' disappointment with the west.
