"Professor Hitchcock’s The Struggle for Europe is not only shrewd and comprehensive, but written with a wit and vigour that makes it a
real joy to read. It deserves to be the standard work on the subject for many years to come."
- Sir Michael Howard, formerly Robert A. Lovett Professor of Military History, Yale
"This a perfect book for a university classroom on postwar Europe. It is smartly written, lively, and firmly grounded in the new research coming out of Russian and East Euopean archives. Hitchcock has a firm grasp on continental developments, from the disputed origins of the Cold War to the new Europe of Maastrict, the ‘Euro,’ and Brussels."
-Norman Naimark, Robert and Florence McDonnell Professor of East European Studies, Stanford University
"Two features of this book stand out: its easy, lucid style, which allows deeply-thought-out analyses to be slipped into the readable narrative; and the confident way it treats regional complexities, from Ulster to Greece, yet preserves the larger picture of Europe’s remarkable transformation. This is a very deft and mature work."
-Paul Kennedy, author of Rise and Fall of Great Powers and Preparing for the 21st Century
"With a sure grasp of political events, and sometimes frighteningly graphic accounts of Europeans’ personal experiences as they dug out of war-devastated homelands, Hitchcock provides a comprehensive, detailed analysis of how those Europeans--with, and sometimes despite, U.S. help--transformed the devastation into world power that is now at the cutting edge of global change."
-Walter LaFeber, Cornell University
"Every now and then books come along that tell you who the master historians of the next generation are going to be. I had this sense as I read Will Hitchcock’s The Struggle for Europe. Shrewd, comprehensive, elegantly written, always convincing in its arguments, it is without question the most successful analytical synthesis of recent European history now available. This is the kind of book that could proudly cap the career of a senior scholar. That it comes from a young historian with years of productive writing and teaching ahead of him bodes very well for the future of our profession."
-John Lewis Gaddis, Yale University
