Moscow 1941 is without a doubt one of the best books written about the Eastern Front in the Second World War, and in my opinion deserves to be held in high esteem as one of the greatest accounts written on the total history of the war. This book as you might already be able to tell is not a military history of the battle of Moscow, but an account of the people and the city through the battle that was fought just outside its gates. Sir Braithwaite does a compelling job illustrating the level of sacrifice of the common Russian and Muscovite in order to achieve victory. Overall the book is full of interesting knowledge and fascinating history, and does a great job weaving original accounts into the story without bogging down the narrative. Even though the outcome of the battle is known, Sir Braithwaite¿s account of the people¿s history pulls you towards the end full of curiosity and interest.Was this review helpful?
