24 September, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

Roger Moorhouse

Roger Moorhouse in conversation with Robert Gerwarth

For nearly two years the two most infamous dictators in history actively collaborated with one another. The Nazi-Soviet Pact stunned the world. WWII was launched under its auspices and its eventual collapse led to the war’s defining and deciding clash. In The Devils’ Alliance Roger Moorhouse tells the full story fr the first time, from the motivation for its inception to its dramatic end in 1941 as Germany declared war against its former parter.

Roger Moorhouse is an English historian and the author of three critically-acclaimed books: Killing Hitler; Berlin at War; and most recently The Devils’ Alliance, a fascinating study of the Nazi-Soviet Pact

Robert Gerwarth is Professor of Modern History at UCD and Director of its Centre for War Studies. He is the author of The Bismarck Myth and Hitler’s Hangman: the Life of Heydrich
