A Terrible Revenge

In his book A Terrible Revenge

“The disaster that befell this area (East Prussia) with the entry of the Soviet forces has no parallel in modern European experience. There were considerable sections of it where, to judge by all existing evidence, scarcely a man, woman or child of the indigenous population was left alive after the initial passage of Soviet forces and one cannot believe that they all succeeded in fleeing to the West. The Russian swept the native population clean in a manner that had no parallel since the days of the Asiatic hordes.”
