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.
