KIRKUS REVIEW

Parry is Russian by birth, and in this rather dull book, presents a disjointed series of discourses on Russia's wars, personalities, and history. He starts with the conquest of Berlin by the Russians in 1760, he touches on high spots in the lives of men, important and unimportant, who have played some part in Russia's history, he swerves into somewhat technical treatment on Russia's modern army, he writes of the contemporary Russian cavalry, and he ends with what seems a somewhat premature appraisal of the Generals who defended Stalingrad. Disjointed, uneven in interest.
