With Stalin’s Wars, Geoffrey Roberts offers the reader a classic grand narrative of World War II (or, as the Russians know it, the Great Patriotic War) and the inception of the Cold War from a Soviet perspective. Based principally on encyclopaedic reading of the printed sources and enlivened by vigorous argument and engagement with scholarly debate, Stalin’s Wars is a well-written and lucid account of a tragic period when the fate of Europe hung in the balance and its outcome largely depended on one country and one man, the Soviet Union and Joseph Stalin.
