Reviews

`Confident and detailed' -- John Lloyd, Financial Times
`Although this book will naturally attract readers interested in military history, it also provides broad insights into how individuals functioned and survived under Stalin and Khrushchev. It is a skilfully written account of an extraordinary man living in extraordinary times.' -- Evan Mawdsley, BBC History Magazine
`This book is an example of high quality biography. It is meticulously researched and objective in its judgments. It is an important contribution to understanding the Soviet psychology as well as the history of the Second World War.' -- Douglas Osler, Scotsman
'In this comprehensive biography Geoffrey Roberts draws on newly available archive material and private papers to piece together Zhukov's remarkable story.' -- Ian Pindar * Guardian *
'[A] well-written and meticulously researched biography' -- Richard Overy, Literary Review

`Geoffrey Robert's fine book, Stalin's General, takes its place among the last, but no less valuable pieces in the jigsaw of World War Two historiography. It is a shrewd, balanced account.' -- Henry Coningsby, Waterstones.com
`The most comprehensive biography of Zhukov available in English, which chronicles not only the marshall's well-known military feats but also, and very importantly, the military and political intrigues and infighting that went on behind the scenes ... It is an informative, accessible and academically rigorous work, the publication of which fittingly marks the 70th anniversary of Stalingrad.' -- Seamus Martin, Irish Times
`Roberts is an excellent historian ... This is a brisk, comprehensive biography.' -- Herald
'[Roberts'] book is worth particular attention...for its fascinating interweaving of public and private events and for the light it sheds on the changing patterns and possibilities of life among the Soviet elite.' -- London Review of Books
`[Roberts] has written in Stalin's General ... the most comprehensive biography of Zhukov.' -- Washington Post
'Roberts has poured over Zhukov's personal papers, his unexpurgated memoirs and recent Russian scholarship to write a definitive account of an impressive if only intermittently sympathetic commander.' -- Mike Oppenheim, Military History magazine
`The most comprehensive biography of Zhukov available in English, which chronicles not only the marshall's well-known military feats but also, and very importantly, the military and political intrigues and infighting that went on behind the scenes.' -- Seamus Martin, Irish Times
`Roberts's biography contains an abundance of new material. It is an informative, accessible and academically rigorous work, the publication of which fittingly marks the 70th anniversary of Stalingrad.' -- Seamus Martin, Irish Times
