Published in 2010, Bloodlands argues that accounts of World War II have paid too much attention to the atrocities of Adolf Hitler, and not enough to Joseph Stalin's. Snyder believes a definitive history of the period must depict the suffering of all of the conflict's victims. He claims people in the "bloodlands"—Poland, the Baltic states, the Ukraine, and the eastern edge of Soviet Russia—suffered the most because they endured three separate, brutal, and bloody invasions: first by the Soviets, then by the Nazis, and finally by the Soviets again. Snyder's extensively documented and wide-ranging story reframes the way we think about World War II and the Holocaust.
