Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. This book is the first to put the experience of Ivan, the archetypal Russian infantryman, at the heart of a narrative of the war on the Eastern Front, displacing the dictators and their generals who have dominated books on the subject for the past sixty years. Digging beneath the jargon and ritual phrases of Soviet-era memory, Merridale has explored letters, diaries, military records, the documents of the secret police and the testimonies of hundreds of surviving witnesses in an attempt to let us hear the voices of those who lived through the war in Russia. We hear the stories of men and women about to die in suicidal attacks, facing German tanks with inadequate weapons and clothing, surviving terrible prison camps or living rough in the woods as partisans.A harrowing but unforgettable report on the chaos and tragedy that brought this Europe to birth . . . Magnificent. INDEPENDENT. Codice libro della libreria 1570
