A fascinating look at the Russian war effort during World War Two by and American war correspondent on the spot in Moscow."It has been said that World War II will be the most completely recorded conflict in history. Hundreds of newspapermen are now with the armed forces on every front. Through the medium of press, radio, and newsreel, they are giving a full picture of what is happening on the battlefields. (Many war correspondents have given their lives in that service.) But, more than that, they are telling us of the nature of the war, its causes and implications, and it is because of this universal education that I think there is more hope than heretofore of avoiding future international human slaughter. Nothing will contribute more to understanding among nations, which is, of course, essential for peace. With this in mind, I would urge every American to read Jim Brown's Russia Fights. Russia Fights is not an ordinary war book. It is a fascinating and vivid picture of the Soviet Union by a veteran foreign correspondent. [...] [It] should do much to promote Soviet-American understanding. Jim Brown gives us a good picture of wartime Moscow, and, with an eye for relevant details, he also portrays the daily life and feeling of the people."
