A masterful survey and synthesis of an understudied and misunderstood combatant of the First World War. This book should find a place on the shelves of commanders in Europe and their staffs, as well as those interested in World War I who are looking to expand beyond the traditional narratives of the Western Front.--InfantryStone has a reputation as an intelligent, reliable, and clear-eyed historian, and this book showcases all of his strengths. One of the many virtues of this volume is that Stone foregrounds several campaigns that get little attention even in broader global or European military histories of the war.--The HistorianProvides an excellent overview of the Russian effort in the First World War, once that is likely to stand for some time as the standard English-language work on the subject.--Army HistoryA detailed account of the Imperial Russian Army during the Great War. . . clarifies the titanic struggle on the Easter Front.--NYMAS ReviewDeftly shifts our perspective not only on the Eastern Front but on the war as a whole by emphasizing commonalities (among empires, operations, home fronts) while appropriately highlighting the many unique challenges faced by the tsarist state.--New Books in Military History
This slim volume skillfully exploits recent archival releases and classic accounts to form a clear, concise and frequently poignant portrayal of Russian participation in World War I, a war that fundamentally altered the course of Russian history. It is a must read for those interested in the subject.--David M. Glantz, author of Endgame at StalingradFor many, the First World War in the East is little known yet, as Stone says, there everything changed. Stone is a superb guide to the innovative and exciting work going on in this field and his account grips the reader from the first paragraph.--Christopher Read, author of War and Revolution in Russia: 1914-22: The Collapse of Tsarism and the Establishment of Soviet Power
