Russia's Life-Saver brilliantly examines the diplomatic rationale for and results of the U.S. decision to grant over $12 billion in Lend-Lease aid to Soviet Russia during World War II. Author Albert L. Weeks wields many facts and statistics never before published in the U.S. Of particular interest is the statement by Soviet Army Marshal Georgy K. Zhukov that U.S. Lend-Lease aid was indispensable, despite Soviet propaganda that sought to minimize its importance.
