A star cast of distinguished contributors--including Dmitri Volkogonov, John Erickson, Catherine Andreyev, David Glantz, and Oleg Rzheshevsky--paint a crucial portrait of a defining period in world history. Unlike most military history, which usually deals with large-scale army movements and campaign strategy, this looks at the training, experience, and personalities of the generals themselves. The result is illuminating, revealing how 25 men succeeded in taking Stalin from the Volga to Berlin.

25 of who's who in Soviet Union armed forces.
Some were not used in World war II.
At least one got purged (thousands total pre-WWII) thanks to Stalin's paranoia that negatively affected army's performance against attacking Finland or defending Hitler's June 22nd, 1941 attack.
Some were good.
One was bad ,but retained because he was Stalin's buddy much to his army detriment.
Some good as as instructors or as theorists.
It more ideas, who they were, their personality & what they done than army's large scale movements.
