/Savage Continent/ http://www.amazon.com/Savage-Continent-Europe-Aftermath-Worl... is a popular-level book on the subject that came out recently and has been well-reviewed. (I've also read a bit of it, and it looks good.) The first episode of the BBC /History of Modern Britain/ series with Andrew Marr, "Advance Britannia", covers the UK in the 1945-1955 period, and it's very entertaining.

I just ordered the book. Here's a quote from one of the reviews: "This book,which comes to fill in this void," Just what I'm talking about. Thanks for the pointer.
