Without question one of the classics of post-war historical scholarship" -
Niall Ferguson. This groundbreaking study was the first authoritative account of
the Russian Front in the First World War to be published in the West and is now
re-issued with a new introduction by the author. The battles fought on the
Eastern Front were decisive to the course of the 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in its outdated administration which resulted in war shortages and an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 modernisation which opened the way towards revolution.
