For anyone seriously interested in the history of the second world war it is no exaggeration to say that this is one of the very few books... that are of crucial importance. The Economist Probably the single most important memoir by a Russian military leader to reach the general public in the West. The New York Times

most of WWII. Lots of socialist code talk that is confusing. But where else can you find such inside
This book is factually very interesting to the student of military history and Salisbury's editing and notes are excellent. The only drawback, as usual, is the lack of larger detailed maps to follow the campaigns. It is also interesting to political students for the glimpses of Stalin as Soviet Supreme Commander behind this gigantic enterprise. He comes out much better than in the descriptins by Western writers, despite his initial blunders in this war when he failed to recognise the German threat.
