About this book
A biography of Marshal Georgy Zhukov, the Soviet general who played a major role in the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad and Kursk during WWII, that brought down the Nazi regime. Postwar, he was sacked and banished twice, and wrongfully accused of disloyalty. Makes use of hundreds of documents from Russian military archives.
Drawing on rich new sources from the recently-opened Soviet archives, Geoffrey Roberts has fashioned the definitive, first full-scale biography of this seminal 20th century figure.
