Hardcover in publisher’s non price-clipped dust-jacket. 470 pages. Bibliographical References, Index. First edition, first printing with full number line. A well researched and argued revisionist interpretation of Germany’s defeat in the East, whereby the author posits that rather than numbers or the vastness of the Russian steppes, it was the Allied decision to open a second front in the Mediterranean that saved Russia. With this thesis Moser tacitly gives credit to Churchill for saving his arch-enemy and inadvertently established the binary post-war world he so abhorred. No previous ownership marks. A clean, tight, fresh and unmarked copy. Fine in a fine dust-jacket.
