For a somewhat different looks at much of the same issues, check out Bloodlands, by Timothy D. Snyder, which is about the mass killing of an estimated 14 million non-combatants by the regimes of Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union and Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany between the years 1929 and 1947 in a region that comprised what is modern-day Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and the Baltic states. I suspect these two book would work well together, if you want to give yourself nightmares. It is a compelling and disturbing read.
