This is a brilliantly researched and realized history, and an essential addition to the literature of World War II.
"This is an absorbing contribution to what [Braithwaite] considers WWII's turning point." (Publishers Weekly)

A grabbing listen that is hard to "put down". Narration is superb.
As a native Russian speaker who grew up in Moscow, I appreciated usage of some of Russian terms...However, for a non-Russian speaker, I wonder whether the Russian lingo would make this a litter harder to enjoy. As a result, this is 5 stars for current/former Moscovites/Russians and 4 stars for non-Russian speakers.

This book moved at a snails pace. My complaint is that the author seems to chronicle the execution of every Russian by the Soviet Army and NKVD (secret police). The events are certainly tragic, but as the hours go by fatigue sets in and I can't listen any longer. This is the only Audible title I can recall not finishing. The reader is good, but he can only help so much...
