Accounting for War: Soviet Production, Employment, and the Defence Burden, 1940-1945by Mark Harrison
Pub. Date: 02/28/2008
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
How did the Soviet Union compare economically with its allies and adversaries before and during World War II? Was Soviet economic survival under massive German attack to be expected? What was the cost of the war in rubles, lives and foregone postwar economic well-being? In this book Mark Harrison answers these questions, providing a comprehensive analysis of the hitherto secret Soviet statistical record.
