Widely regarded as the most accomplished general of World War II, the Soviet military legend Marshal Georgy Zhukov at last gets the full-scale biographical treatment he has long deserved. A man of indomitable will and fierce determination, Georgy Zhukov was the Soviet Union's indispensable commander through every one of the critical turning points of World War II. It was Zhukov who saved Leningrad from capture by the Wehrmacht in September 1941, Zhukov who led the defense of Moscow in October 1941, Zhukov who spearheaded the Red Army's march on Berlin and formally accepted Germany's unconditional surrender in the spring of 1945. Drawing on the latest research from recently opened Soviet archives, including the uncensored versions of Zhukov's own memoirs, Roberts offers a vivid portrait of a man whose tactical brilliance was matched only by the cold-blooded ruthlessness with which he pursued his battlefield objectives. After the war, Zhukov was a key player on the geopolitical scene. As Khrushchev's defense minister, he was one of the architects of Soviet military strategy during the Cold War. While lauded in the West as a folk hero -- he was the only Soviet general ever to appear on the cover of Time magazine -- Zhukov repeatedly ran afoul of the Communist political authorities. Wrongfully accused of disloyalty, he was twice banished and erased from his country's official history -- left out of books and paintings depicting Soviet World War II victories. Piercing the hyperbole of the Zhukov personality cult, Roberts debunks many of the myths that have sprung up around Zhukov's life and career to deliver fresh insights into the marshal's relationships with Stalin, Khrushchev, and Eisenhower. A remarkably intimate portrait of a man whose life was lived behind an Iron Curtain of official secrecy, Stalin's General is an authoritative biography that restores Zhukov to his rightful place in the twentieth-century military pantheon. - Publisher.… (mere)

Deși are tendința să vadă mai clar luminile decât umbrele din personajul complex care a fost Jukov, autorul le prezintă pe toate, cu argumente și pro, și contra, și construiește o biografie echilibrată și detaliată, în general foarte obiectivă. ( )

Georgij Zjukov var en man med okuvlig vilja, briljans och grymhet. Han var en av de mest inflytelserika befälhavarna under andra världskriget och spelade huvudrollen vid flera kritiska vändpunkter i kriget. Stalins general är den första heltäckande biografin över den militärhistoriska legenden Zjukov. Med hjälp av källor från nyligen öppnade sovjetiska arkiv och ocensurerade versioner av Zjukovs egna memoarer, har Geoffrey Roberts tecknat ett anmärkningsvärt närgånget porträtt av en man vars liv utspelades bakom en järnridå av officiell sekretess.

Interesting life. Zhukov emerges as with flaws, but still the greatest Soviet general of the Second World War. A little on his personal life. Very interesting on the struggles of the Khrushchev period. Very little on the terrible consequences of war for the civilian population. Access to previously secret archives greatly enhances the book. I had never heard of his first campaign, on the Mongolian/Manchukuo border.As so often, the maps are inadequate, usually failing to record the places mentioned in the text.

A history well told is all about the narrative - any researcher can cite numbers or reports. In this task the author fails - the vast majority of this book is just recitations of numbers and reports with too little insight between the contemporary reports.

There is a fantastic story here, unfortunately I feel this book barely scratched the surface. ( )

This feels a little light in the sense it is more of a timeline about Zhukov's career and I find it lacks depth and specificity as to why he was considered so great. Perhaps more detail at times would help. It is a decent history though. ( )
