World War Two: 1941 and The Man of Steel - Preview

World War Two: 1941 and The Man of Steel

Preview by Jack Foley

In World War Two: 1941 and The Man of Steel, due for release on August 8, 2016, Reynolds examines Josef Stalin’s handling of the conflict between the Soviet Union and Germany during the Second World War.

The name Stalin means ‘man of steel’, but Reynolds’ penetrating account reveals that the man himself was anything but.

Releasing to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Reynolds reveals how the dictator’s mental frailties nearly caused his country to fall to the Nazis, and examines the compromises Stalin was forced to make to survive.

He also investigates the events that led to Stalin eventually siding with the Allies, including Winston Churchill’s controversial visit to Moscow in 1942.

Travelling to the sites of the main battles and using original telegrams and official documents, he re-examines how Britain and America were drawn into alliance with Stalin, a dictator almost as murderous as the Nazi enemy.
