A soviet masterpiece given a masterful Russian performance. No more to say except buy it, listen and imagine the siege of Leningrad.

This review is from: Goldberg (Audio CD)
If you only have one Bach CD in your collection, make it this one. A wonderfully sensitive and precise interpretation.

This review is from: The Conductor (Kindle Edition)
A tale skillfully weaving fiction with historical fact. Dealing with the World War 2 siege of Leningrad, it offers an insight into the suffering and eventual triumph of the non-military population. Whether you read this from a war position, or from a music one, it is hugely enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WW2 History book with a difference, 6 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Russia's War (Kindle Edition)
This book will change your understanding of the Second World War. A scholarly but readable account from the Russian point of view. Richard Overy really delivers thought provoking information, and weeks after reading it I am still dazzled by his account of the scope and scale of the Red Army logistics, and of the organisation of industrial resources.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading about ordinary people in WW2, 6 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Astonishing stories written in an easy to read style. You will want to know more about the Soviet Union participation in the Second World War after reading this. A good point to start, and worthwhile to read in order to create an introduction to a more balanced history of WW2 events.
