Sad book but ALL should read it to see - were we are going NOW.
Stepp
For those interested in knowing all of world war 2 history, and not just the rosy view from the perspective of the victor, this book is a must read.
Colorado Goddess
Instead of being a good and kind example to the world, England and the United States fell deeply into the abyss of tyranny.

I bought Gruesome Harvest several years ago, but never read it until this summer. This book is a full-frontal assault on the genocidal Morgenthau Plan and the Potsdam accords. But how accurate is it? Very accurate. My mother was a civilian employee of the United States Armed Forces and a resident of the French Zone of occupation after World War II. The information in this book corresponds directly with her accounts of life there after the war. It's important to note there was a hierarchy of food availability in the U.S. occupied zone - the military naturally got as much food as they needed, then the DP's or Displaced Persons also had access to good nutrition. Finally, the Germans were at the bottom of the food chain, given an "official" subsistence diet of 1,200 calories a day, usually much less. The author cites studies from The University of Minnesota of the results of feeding people 1,650 calories a day "Within six months each man lost a fourth of his weight and experienced fainting spells, dizziness, and a feeling of always being cold. Their hearts shrank and some had to have two blankets even in summer. All lost three-fourths of their energy and work ability." He also cites a similar study of an experiment conducted by Northwestern University Medical School; " ... after six weeks, however, they showed a slow, progressive deterioration in physical and mental health, accompanied by loss of endurance, skin lesions, leg pains, and mental slowness." The 1,200 calorie diet was all the more horrific because the majority of the 15 million German expellees were resettled into the bombed out ruins of the Western zones (not Soviet zone) of occupation after having been starved, repeatedly raped, and otherwise abused by the Soviets and their puppets.Read more ›

The crimes committed by Germany were atrocious. Yet the crimes committed against the German people were even worse. Why? Young children, babies, women, and old people were viciously murdered, driven from their homes, and starved. Who was the author of these crimes? It was Churchill, Roosevelt, and the grand master of all evil, Stalin. These three were responsible for planning and allowing German to lose a large portion of their country, an force millions of defenseless people out of their homes, ancestral lands that in some instances had been in their family for centuries, and did not care if they starved or not. I have no respect for these 3 "leaders." Both Churchill and Roosevelt came from a civilized nation which taught Christian values as forgive thy neighbor and dod good to those that hate you and despise you... Yet, they failed and became worse than Stalin, the greatest murderer in all of history. Instead of being a good and kind example to the world, England and the United States fell deeply into the abyss of tyranny.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book Gruesome Harvest, should be on the mandatory highschool and college reading list for history and sociology. It is one of the few books that are available in English that address the murder of millions of non-combatant German civilians and German prisoners of war from 1944 to 1950 as a matter of deliberate allied policy not inefficient logistics as it is most often presented in school text books. It is important because this book was written as it was still happening and includes comments from eye witnesses in the same time period. The book is not politically correct and shocked me because it speaks in a such a predudicial fashion about persons of the black race. That however in this point makes it useful to sociologist and historians because it correctly reflects widely held opinion at the time within U.S. society.

As to the correct observation that allied policy was to reduce the German population through, murder in multiple forms, slave labor, and starvation, and destroy the fabric of the society through mass rape of the female population, other authors are critized for saying the same thing but only decades later. Fact is there is a great effort to keep this information from the public because it shows that the victors of WWII incorporated not only military strategy and tactics but also the NAZI ideology of racial hatred and a policy of extermination and discrimination for one people.

Format: Paperback
Gruesome Harvest was shocking and depressing as it described in shocking detail of the tragic reports and stories about the post war conditions in Germany in 1945 and 1946. The treatment of civilians, women and girls in particular, was horrific. It is dificult to imagine now that the powers of Britain, France, the Soviet Union and the United States could look the other way when things got so bad in Germany's effort to deal with starvation and a hopeless decline in civil control. Chaos was rampant and it is a miracle that they recovered from a total breakdown of society. It is an historical document which should be more widely
distributed and publicized.
