Overview



Fast’s fascinating biography of Joseph Broz, known to the world as Tito, including his rise to power and his remarkable stand against fascism


The world was mired in the Second World War when Howard Fast wrote The Incredible Tito. Upon the book’s publication in 1944, there was still no united Yugoslavia, the Axis controlled most of Europe, and D-Day was only in the planning stages. In the Balkans, Tito was a beacon of hope against the advancing Nazis. He led a force of resistance fighters that bedeviled the occupying German army throughout Slavic regions and empowered people’s committees to act as local government in all liberated areas. For observers on the political left, Tito seemed uniquely poised to unite the East and West against fascism—once and for all.

Meet the Author


Howard Fast (1914–2003) was one of the most prolific American writers of the twentieth century. He was a bestselling author of more than eighty works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and screenplays. The son of immigrants, Fast grew up in New York City and published his first novel upon finishing high school in 1933. In 1950, his refusal to provide the United States Congress with a list of possible Communist associates earned him a three-month prison sentence. During his incarceration, Fast wrote one of his best-known novels, Spartacus (1951). Throughout his long career, Fast matched his commitment to championing social justice in his writing with a deft, lively storytelling style.

    It whets the appetite for a longer biography. An excellent and short biography of Marshal Tito written during WWII. It centers almost exclusively on his military prowess against the Nazis. It leaves me curious to read more about the rest of his life after the war. Fast was an American communist who suffered through McCarthyism and a blacklisting in Hollywood before being embraced with the success of Spartacus.

    The eBook was formatted fine with only one noticeable spelling error.

    Enjoyable read

    I would have liked more depth to the character, but it was a quick, historical account.

    I couldn't get into this short story. It was ok, but not what I would've liked.

    Good review of Tito

    I liked this book. It was short so it gave an overview of what happened during the war.
