It whets the appetite for a longer biography. An excellent and short biography of Marshal Tito written during WWII. It centers almost exclusively on his military prowess against the Nazis. It leaves me curious to read more about the rest of his life after the war. Fast was an American communist who suffered through McCarthyism and a blacklisting in Hollywood before being embraced with the success of Spartacus.

The eBook was formatted fine with only one noticeable spelling error.

The Incredible Tito is 54 pages out of an available 61 pages, with the remaing 7 pages for the author's biography. It was written in 1944, and it was recently published in 2003. Fast's writing is worth more than two stars; the two stars are a warning that this is an incomplete biography if a reader wants something more, as the 2003 publication date might imply.
I recommend it only for students of Tito or students of the writing of Howard Fast.
For someone who is interested in WWII battles, this is the book for them.
Short book telling about Yugoslavia's push against Axis forces. Good.
