Considered by some to be the greatest general of World War II, General Georgi Zhukov served as the Chief of Staff of the Soviet High Command, leading Soviet troops against Germans in key battles of the war. In his account of four major campaigns in the war-the defense of Moscow, Stalingrad, and Kursk, and the advance on Berlin-Zhukov describes his experiences preparing for German attacks, organizing counter-strikes, assessing the enemy, and issuing the orders that pushed the front west, towards Germany's capital. Zhukov also tells of his extensive arguments with Stalin during the war, and the political alliances and rivalries among the U. S. S. R.'s generals throughout the conflict.
Georgi K. Zhukov (1896-1974) was one of the most important Soviet military commanders of the twentieth century. Harrison E. Salisbury (1908-1993) was the author of Black Night, White Snow and The 900 Days. David M. Glantz, editor of The Journal of Slavic Military Studies, lives in Carlisle, PA, near Harrisburg.
