Praise

“Penetrating and compassionate…” – The New York Times

“Masterly … a vivid account”– Robert Service, Independent (London)

“A dramatic and exciting tale … His set-piece descriptions of such visions of Hell as Stalingrad, the 900-day siege of Leningrad and the crucial battle of Kursk are as fascinating as they are horrifying” ― Sunday Times (London)

“Overy is a first-class military historian … He writes concisely and says what he means to say … Now, we have an authoritative British account that understands both sides, without illusions.” Norman Stone, Spectator (London)

“Excellent … Overy tackles this huge, complex and multifaceted story with the vital gifts of clarity and brevity” — Antony Beevor, Literary Review (London)
