5.0 out of 5 stars A tremendous book, 29 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Russia's War (Paperback)
Written from a high level, with a beautiful narrative, this is not for the military history reader who wants to know exactly which division was headed by which commander. What it does do is set the context within which the war was fought, gives a real feel of those tremendous sieges and battles, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Kursk, etc. The reader is allowed to consider the stereotypes of west and east, challenging ideas that Russia could do it without supplies from America and Britain, that Russia was always going to win, that it was just a matter of numbers or armaments. And it gives yet a new evaluation of Stalin. Read and learn.

Do you have any suggestions of a military history of the Russian front that does go into details regarding forces, commanders etc.?

Beevor's books on Stalingrad and on the battle for Berlin. These are much more detailed.
