Zhukov by Otto Preston Chaney( Book )

Marshal Georgi Konstantinovich Zhukov, hero of Leningrad, defender of Moscow and Stalingrad, commander of the victorious Red Army at Berlin, was the most decorated soldier in Soviet history. Yet for many years Zhukov was relegated to the status of "unperson" in his homeland. Now, following glasnost and the fall of the Soviet Union, Zhukov is being restored to his rightful place in history. In this completely updated version of his classic 1971 biography of Zhukov, Otto Preston Chaney provides the definitive account of the man and his achievements. To provide a thorough account of Zhukov's life, Chaney draws upon a large range of historical and military sources, correcting old information with new. His most important source is Zhukov's own memoirs, which have recently been expanded to include previously censored material
