“Having brilliantly documented the horror of Stalin’s Soviet terror machine in her Pulitzer Prize-­winning Gulag, author Anne Applebaum now offers a bulky sequel, Iron Curtain, about the brutal effort of that same machine to crush and colonize Eastern Europe in the first decade after World War II. Her evidence, once again drawn from archival research and some survivor interviews, is overwhelming and convincing. But the heart of her story is hardly news.” >review & photo (c) NYT, 2012
