World War Two : Behind closed doors : Stalin, the Nazis and the West

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In World War II: Behind Closed Doors, award-winning documentary-maker and historian Laurence Rees brings us a gripping new history of World War II - one that is full of surprises, even for those who think they know the history. Drawing on material only available since the opening of archives in the East, Rees re-examines the key decisions made by Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt during the war. And as the truth about Stalins earlier friendly relationship with the Nazis is laid bare, a devastating and surprising picture of the Soviet leader emerges one that is deeply embarrassing for many Russians. The emotional core of the book is the amazing new testimony obtained from nearly a hundred separate witnesses from the period. Former Soviet secret policemen talk frankly for the first time about their repressive work; Allied seamen reveal how they braved the Arctic convoys; and Red Army veterans talk of how they killed Germans in hand-to-hand fighting on the Eastern Front. Accompanying a major six-part BBC2 history series, this enthralling narrative is a mix of high politics including the inside story of the Allies meetings at Tehran, Yalta and Potsdam and the dramatic personal experiences of those on the ground who bore the consequences of their decisions. 16pp b&w photographs. Black cloth boards stamped in gilt on the spine. A clean, unmarked copy. Dust jacket slightly worn on top edge
