Moscow War Diary
Moscow War Diary
By Alexander Werth
Knopf, 1942, 297 pp

Mr. Werth, for many years Paris correspondent of the Manchester Guardian, grew up in Russia, and thus is better equipped than most observers there to interpret that country and its people. He went to Russia shortly after the Germans struck in June 1941. This diary is the most vivid and informative account we have so far of the manner in which the Russian people have reacted to the war.
