I have updated the “Timeline to War” page. This update includes relevant dates from the book “Advance to Barbarism,” by FJP Veale, and the book “Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin,” by Timothy Snyder, as well as other minor additions and clarifications. The new items are in red.
Items in parenthesis refer to (book:page); book references can be found at the end of the post. Where helpful, I have added hyperlinks in addition to page references. I have also added specificity to several previously unspecific dates.
