A Writer at War: A Soviet Journalist with the Red Army, 1941-1945

Vasily Grossman


whilst the Germans invaded Russia in 1941, Vasily Grossman turned a unique correspondent for the Red Star, the Soviet Army's newspaper, and stated from the frontlines of the battle. A author at War depicts in vibrant element the crushing stipulations at the japanese entrance, and the lives and deaths of infantrymen and civilians alike. Witnessing the most savage battling of the battle, Grossman observed firsthand the repeated early defeats of the crimson military, the brutal road struggling with in Stalingrad, the conflict of Kursk (the biggest tank engagement in history), the safety of Moscow, the battles in Ukraine, the atrocities at Treblinka, and lots more and plenty extra.

Antony Beevor and Luba Vinogradova have taken Grossman's uncooked notebooks, and shaped them right into a gripping narrative delivering essentially the most even-handed descriptions --at as soon as unflinching and delicate -- we've ever had of what Grossman known as “the ruthless fact of war.”
