comment What is the basis of Russian criticism of Antony Beevor's work?
@Felix Goldberg Also without qualifier the sentence "When Russian soldiers discover methyl alcohol they drink it" means that ALL Russian soldiers do so. Compare "On one occasion a Greenlander killed his wife", "Some Greenlanders kill their wives" and "Greenlanders kill their wives". Given one murder of a wife by Greenlander, which sentence is more appropriate? Given one instance of such murder, can you describe it as "Greenlanders kill their wives"? I mentioned methanol poitioning in the US South Pole base. Can one say now "Upon discovery of methyl alcohol, the US polar personnel drink it"?

@Felix Goldberg okay, if so, then to what time period or place refers the second sentence "Red Army soldiers who discovered methyl alcohol drank it and shared it with their comrades."? Obviously it refers to the circumstances set in the previous one, that is, to "most of the program". If I say "Last week he was terrible. He sat and drunk vodka". The second sentence obviously means he drunk vodka last week, not sometime previously in his life.

@Felix Goldberg Beevor makes a claim about "most of the programme" based only on one methanol poitioning case. Where do I stretch his the words?
