Riassunto: Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov remains a national hero in today?s Russia as the man who beat Hitler and saved both Russia and Europe from the Nazis. His reputation is that of a Russian patriot and an independent-minded general who remained a key figure in Stalin?s high command throughout the Great Patriotic War. Zhukov played a significant role in virtually all the principal battles on the Eastern Front during the Second World War ? including Moscow, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin. It was Zhukov who formally accepted Germany?s unconditional surrender on 9 May 1945.
In his post-war autobiography Zhukov chronicled his brilliant career as he saw it ? and wanted it to be seen. His memoirs reveal the why and how of decision-making at the highest level of the Soviet command throughout the war, and his continued loyalty to the Soviet dictator despite being demoted after the war. Zhukov?s writing is a fascinating and invaluable source for anyone interested in the war on the Eastern Front and presents intriguing insights into Zhukov the man as well as Zhukov the military commander.
L'autore: Professor Geoffrey Roberts is an internationally recognised expert on Stalin, Soviet foreign policy and the Second World War. His publications include Stalin's Wars: From World War to Cold War, 1939-1953, Molotov: Stalin's Cold Warrior and Stalin's General: The Life of Georgy Zhukov.
