The Moment of Liberation in Western Europe

Power Struggles and Rebellions, 1943-1948

Gerd-Rainer Horn

  • Casts new light on the parameters of the postwar reconstruction of Western Europe
  • Underlines the power of grassroots structures and the networks of rank-and-file resistance activists
  • Uses a consistently transnational approach to view the moment of liberation as a quasi-continental shift towards the political Left
