Tomus -> Absolute War- Good book (4/14/2008 6:18:25 PM)

Just a quick book recommendation. Its called "Absolute War" about the Soviet Union in WWII. Just been released in paperback. Very readable and well researched, guy took 10 years on it.

Worth a look if anyone has an interest.

This part was funny.

Churchill "had not known quite what to expect in the land of workers and peasants which was bearing the brunt of the war with Germany, so he brought some sandwiches". After being plied with traditional Russian hospitality, including a seven-hour drinking bout with the dictator, Churchill may have felt his sandwiches were surplus to requirement.

Lucky for him that his tour didn't include a visit to Finland as well, his liver might not have survived ;).
