Peter Whitewood is Lecturer in History and American Studies, at York St. John University in the United Kingdom.
Explanations of Stalin's massacre of his own military on the eve of
war have ranged from insanity to paranoia to German disinformation.
Peter Whitewood has turned a critical eye to the sources and the
existing interpretations of Stalin's military purge and offers a
new answer. How that happened makes for good history and
fascinating reading." - J. Arch Getty, Distinguished Professor of
History at UCLA and author of Practicing Stalinism: Bolsheviks,
Boyars, and the Persistence of Tradition
"Based on recently-released archival materials, this well-crafted book advances a much-needed reappraisal of Stalin's `Great Purges' of the Soviet military. The author's fresh and cogent arguments regarding Stalin's rationale for these purges make it a must-read for historians and military historians alike." - David Glantz, author of The Stalingrad Trilogy
