Braithwaite...has written the best history book of the year so far.
With great skill, he maintains tension throughout this sinewy, moving and consummately crafted history of the soviet union's darkest hours...it is the stuff of epics.
A vivid picture of the stark and bloody struggle for national survival with which Russia's war began.
Braithwaite...retells the story with verve and compassion.
an impressive account
a masterful account
an outstanding book...these accounts provide a fascinating insight not only into the war but also into Soviet society.
a splendid read, full of interesting material, and essential for anyone trying to understand the Russians...and the war they fought and won at such a great cost
one of the most overlooked moments in history...the strength of Moscow 1941 lies in its eye for detail, the snapshots of everyday life that set the scene
Together with his remarkably clear, concise style...and his empathy with the people, he achieves a graphic vividness which puts this book on a level with Beevor's
