CHOICE Review

Grenkevich, a former Belorussian officer in the Red Army and now an associate professor in the foreign languages department at the Belorussian Agro-Technical University, has written a fine and informative book on the Soviet partisan movement during WW II. In most studies, the Soviet partisan movement is treated as part of the Red Army. The author, however, considers the partisans separately and, while recognizing that they clearly were subordinate to the Red Army, gives them attention and analysis that are long overdue. With detail and verve, Grenkevich describes the critical role of the partisans in tying down sizable numbers of German troops on the eastern front. Based on archival material, published works, and interviews, this book is a major addition to the historiography of the eastern front. Useful bibliography; appendixes. Graduate, faculty. D. J.
