The Journal of Soviet Military Studies.

The Journal of Soviet Military Studies. Andreyev's book is likely to become the standard reference work on an important movement whose leading figures were hanged in Moscow in August 1946" Journal of Ukrainian Studies. My interest in this period of history is intense, especially in contrast to the National Socialist ideology versus the Soviet Communist ideology. Of particular curiosity are the movements on both sides, the Nazis sponsoring the "Committee for the Liberation of the Peoples of Russia" headed by former Soviet General Andrey Vlasov and the Soviet initiated "National Committee for a Free Germany" headed by former Nazi General Friedrich Paulus.

By November 1944, his Russian Liberation Army, armed and equipped by the Germans, was finally allowed to take to the field, but its only really memorable - and honourable - act was to join up with Czech insurgents and take on the SS in Prague in the closing days of the war. This final switching of sides did nothing to save Vlasov; he and his officers were arrested, taken back to the Soviet Union, where they were tried and hanged in 1946.

Excellent, well written and extensively researched book.

This is really not a history of Vlasov & his movement but rather a very dry academic examination of his philosophy, politics & their historical underpinnings. My take (& I scanned this book rather than truly studying it) is that it suffers from what arm chair academics do: they over think it. These people Hayes Stalin & how he perverted the revolution-simple. It doesn't take this treatise to figure it out. Reads like a PhD thesis.

Sadly, I found this book extremely disappointing. My interest in this period of history is intense, especially in contrast to the National Socialist ideology versus the Soviet Communist ideology. Of particular curiosity are the movements on both sides, the Nazis sponsoring the "Committee for the Liberation of the Peoples of Russia" headed by former Soviet General Andrey Vlasov and the Soviet initiated "National Committee for a Free Germany" headed by former Nazi General Friedrich Paulus. Being familiar with most of what transpired, this publication was very light in the details, distorted in perspective and a bit exaggerated in a sensational way. One example is at the end with the execution of General Vlasov by the Soviets in which the author alleges that he and his associates were "hanged with piano wire" and that somehow a "meat hook" was placed in the base of their skulls. The Soviets published the execution photographs and the hangings were done with regular rope in the typical fashion of the time. This caused me to question this version and look into other details with similar results of distortion, exaggeration and sensationalism. Very disappointing.

Of more disappointment is that the entire essence of the book is covered in the first 80 pages and the remainder are opinions or various interpretations of the same material, yet almost $100? Hardly seems worth the money . . .

This work is primarily on the ideology of the wartime German sponsored Russian Liberation Movement. Its leadership, who had advanced under Stalin and had been captured by the Germans, attempted to combine Communist, Russian nationalist, and Western democratic beliefs, in a platform that would appeal to the majority of Russians, as well as to the United States. The main statements of the Movement, which the author examines, were devoid of Nazi ideology, and the Movement itself never received the full approval of Hitler and his highest subordinates. Because the leaders of the Russian Liberation Movement were able to express their views on the Stalinist system, without the constraints of the system, this analysis of their ideology, would be of great interest to students of Soviet internal politics before and during the Second World War.

Every so often a text appears which dispells the conventional wisdom of what we come to accept as history. Catherine Andreyev's "Vlasov and the Russian Liberation Movement" is such a work. This narrative tells the story of one of the strangest, yet most compelling episolds in the history of the second world war. In July of 1942, a Soviet Army general, Andrei Vlasov was captured by the invading German Army. He later came to lead a non-existant force known as the ROA, or Russian Liberation Army. Although this force had never exsted, he was in fact the ideological leader of an estimated 800 million Russians who were opposed to Stalin and served in various capacities during the war. Throughout the war it was clear that the movement was not, as their opponents had charged, blind collaboration with the Nazi forces but a political movement in its own right. The goal of Vlasov and his group was none other than a free and democratic Russian state. In the course of the movement, it was in fact the Nazis themselves that provided the strongest opposition to the goals of the ROA. They, in fact had desired to use Vlasov only for the purpose of propaganda against the Soviets. Andreyev's story tells the story of the various individuals in the movement and the tragic outcome of this movement. Particular emphisis is placed on different factions involved. In this story we learn about the soldiers themselves who were mostly russian prisoners of war, as well as the civilian emigre groups who supported the ROA. We also see the internal struggle between the Vlasov's group who sincerely wanted to liberate their homeland and the Nazi hierarchy who concidered the russians as being racially inferior and wanted to use them as puppets. In short this is an excellent story of an idealistic, but doomed group of people and their struggle.
