Early Years by Elkanah Shmotkin
The product of an exhaustive, years-long, worldwide research project, Early Years tells the riveting story of the early life of the man who, as much as anyone else, set the course of Jewish history in the twentieth century.

These questions and others about the Rebbe's early life have never been answered comprehensively.
