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.

Russia's Life-Saver lifts the curtain on exactly how crucial U.S. Lend-Lease aid was to the USSR's eventual success against Germany in World War II. Until now, all we in the West could really do was guess. We of course knew what we had lent (the numerator) but we didn't know what the secretive Soviets needed (the denominator). Using new evidence from previously-closed Russian archives and new research by native Russian historians, and offering gripping conclusions, Dr. Weeks sets the record straight about this truly pivotal period of twentieth-century history. -- Kenneth MacWilliams, U.S. private investor in Russia since 1991; former Wall Street executive
