Moral combat : good and evil in World War II / Michael Burleigh

Publication | Library Call Number: D743 .B875 2011
Book cover

British historian Burleigh describes the atrocities of WWII and the reasoning behind them. Burleigh explains that Communist, Nazi, Fascist, and Japanese systems claimed to be regimes of public virtue carrying out inexorable historical processes. Proclaiming that the only evil was obstructing this march to utopia, they discarded the rule of law and alternative moral authority (religion, ethics).
