Peters presents privates and officers with qualities and faults reminding that the mainstream perception that the Soviet soldiers and officers were backward and without initiative, was a well planted western propaganda element. Red Army is the story of what could have happened, told with common sense and impartiality, and these 2 elements produce the difference, when compared to other similar titles.
From the cockpit of a MIG to the foot soldiers and tankers on the scarred, bloody battlefields to the four-star general commanding the attack, Red Army is a riveting portrayal of modern war--and of human strengths and weaknesses. Seen entirely through Russian eyes, this extraordinary novel is destined to become a classic.
