General Eisenhower said the world owed a greater debt to Zhukov than to any other military figure for the victory over Nazi Germany." "A jealous Stalin viewed him differently. Despite all Zhukov's war-time achievements and decorations, on his return from the Eastern front he was declared a non-person, and sent on futile appointments far away from Moscow." "Russia's greatest modern hero was neglected by the media, his huge role in the victory over Hitler's Germany was slighted by official histories and his memoirs were censored." "Zhukov's leadership on the field was shown in such epic battles as Moscow, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin. Marshal Zhukov: The Man Who Beat Hitler goes beyond the battlefield to tell the remarkable story of one of the most important and influential - yet often forgotten - figures of the Second World War."--Jacket." ;
