At the center of this novel, overshadowing the lives of each of a huge cast of characters, stands the Battle of Stalingrad. Written by Vasily Grossman – of Jewish origin and once an honored Soviet writer, the novel depicts a world torn apart by war and by ideological tyranny, and is a condemnation of totalitarianism equating Stalinism and Nazism in their falsehood, cruelty, and inhumanity.Item #901089
