    Until the advent of glasnost began to lift censorship in the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s, it was impossible for Russians in Russia to truthfully depict their own struggle against Nazi Germany. Even before World War II was over, the Soviet propaganda machine began to construct an official story: through enormous sacrifice, the Soviet people had gloriously freed themselves and the world from fascism, raising the hammer and sickle higher than ever on the ruins of Hitler’s imperialist dreams.
    In Stalin, the Russians, and Their War, however, Marius Broekmeyer presents the testimony of Russian participants, eyewitnesses, and historians of World War II to reveal not a heroic struggle, but a war marred by catastrophes, errors, and lies. These testimonies openly discuss subjects omitted from official Soviet propaganda or glossed over in popular Western histories of the Allied victory in WWII—from purges within the Red Army and Soviet use of "punitive brigades" to the deployment of millions of poorly equipped soldiers to the front lines.
    These are authentic and often shocking first-hand accounts. Such a vivid report on the day-to-day lives of Russian soldiers, officers, and citizens during World War II does not exist anywhere else in English.

From the Back Cover:

"A clear-eyed, uncompromising view of a critical and often disregarded element in the Allied triumph over the Third Reich. Broekmeyer amasses vignettes to create a kaleidoscopic impression of the war, the Stalinist state, and their impacts on the lives of ordinary people. The overall effect is as devastating as it is enlightening."--David McDonald, University of Wisconsin-Madison, author of United Government and Russian Foreign Policy, 1900-1914
