Influential revisionist history makes case that Stalin encouraged Hitler's attack on the West, and was preparing his own surprise attack on Germany when his plans were upset by the German Barbarossa invasion. Suvorov overturns the conventional wisdom on Germany's war guilt by outlining Josef Stalin's diplomatic, political and military intentions, and this seminal work has generated a large body of scholarship on both sides of the argument. Crisp and clean Review Copy of the first edition, first printing, of this uncommon and controversial history.; 364 pages.
