Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The battlefields of the USSR witnessed the most devastating confrontations of World War II. In every one of those battles, Communist dictator Josef Stalin exercised his influence, meddling with (and executing) his generals, hurling unprepared armies into pure chaos, and meeting with his Western allies to divide the world up into zones of influence that would soon be embroiled in a new war. World War II scholar Hoyt describes the war from Stalin's vantage point and shows how his decisions, especially his early refusal to go to war with Germany even after they attacked, led to the historic battles for Leningrad, Stalingrad, and Moscow. Hoyt also explains how Stalin's bloody purges before the war left a military bereft of leadership, yet opened the doors for Zhukov, Chuikov, Rokossovsky, and other crucial commanders to spearhead a Soviet victory. Stalin's War also examines Stalin's use of propaganda to vilify the German army and blame Soviet war crimes and human rights violations on the Nazis.

Synopsis:

Hoyt's new book on World War II examines the war from the viewpoint of the Soviet leader, Josef Stalin. Hoyt takes into account how the dictator weakened his own armed forces with purges before the war, yet how after Germany's attack he became immersed in the fight against the Nazis.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 283-284) and index.

Synopsis:

Edwin Hoyt's thoroughly researched tome is the first ever to chronicle the Soviet-German war as seen through Stalin's eyes.
