9780140267259: The Eastern Front 1914-1917

A groundbreaking historical study, Norman Stone's The Eastern Front 1914-1917 was the very first authoritative account of the Russian Front in the First World War to be published in the West.

In this now-classic history he dispels the myths surrounding a still relatively little-known aspect of the war, showing how inefficiency rather than economic shortage led to Russia's desperate privations and eventual retreat. He also interprets the connection between the war and the chaos that followed, arguing that although fighting had almost ceased by the end of 1916, Russia was still in turmoil - undergoing a period of change that would inexorably lead towards revolution.

'A landmark in its field ... it is still the best book on the eastern front'
  Orlando Figes

'A classic account ... that even after thirty years remains essential reading'
  Sunday Times

'Without question one of the classics of post-war historical scholarship'
  Niall Ferguson

'One of the outstanding historians of our age'
  Spectator

'Fills an enormous gap in our knowledge and understanding of the Great War'
  Sunday Telegraph

Book Description Penguin UK, 1998. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The battles fought on the Eastern Front were decisive to the course of the First World War. As well as reconstructing these events, Norman Stone explores the factors that influenced their outcome and draws some unexpected conclusions. Dispelling the popular myth of an economically crippled Russia, he argues that the country was, in fact, going through a period of unprecedented economic growth. Tsarist Russia's weakness lay in its outdated administration, which resulted in war shortages and an inefficient army. In a fascinating reinterpretation of the connection between the war and the revolution that followed, he shows that although military events had almost ceased by the end of 1916, Russia was still in turmoil, undergoing a period of modernization that opened the way to revolution.
