For many readers John Erickson opened up the history of Russia with his classic book THE ROAD TO STALINGRAD. The drama and scale of Russia's history makes it perennially popular and many of today's best-known historians write about or specialise in it - including Norman Stone, Robert Service and Antony Beevor.
They have all contributed to this book, together with other leading historians, in honour of John Erickson. As a result this is a distinguished collection of great variety; from David Glantz exploring forgotten battles with Germany, to Reina Pennington on the women who took part in the Battle of Stalingrad, Antony Beevor explaining how he uncovered the realities of the seige, and James Cant on the controversy of Russian nuclear missiles trained on Europe.
