"A sweeping, detailed, readable account of the first Russian civil war and an excellent analysis of the war's causes and development. . . . This one deserves a place on the shelf of anyone interested in the period."
--Martha Luby Lahana, Russian Review
"Dunning's book on Russia's First Civil War is a highly detailed, readable account of a turbulent time in Russian history that has relevancy even today as Russia continues to struggle with its infant democracy."
--Leo J. Daugherty III, Journal of Slavic Military Studies
"Dunning's new book is a historical tour de force, a major reconceptualization of Russia's Time of Troubles, 1598-1613."
--Carol B. Stevens, American Historical Review
"Dunning's book is a welcome addition to the literature on the Time of Troubles, offering a chronological narrative of events that provides more detail on the military campaigns of 1604-1607 than other English-language accounts."
--Maureen Perrie, Slavic Review
"This is clearly the best and most judicious account of the Time of Troubles in any language. A magnificent achievement that will significantly benefit the reading world, especially those interested in Russia and comparative civil disorders."
--Richard Hellie, University of Chicago
"We can thank Chester S. L. Dunning for explaining, much more than anyone before him, why and how this stunning reversal of fortunes occurred."
--Marshall Poe, Times Literary Supplement
