4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and informative, 19 Jan 2014

This review is from: Stalingrad (Kindle Edition)
A very detailed book, excellent for students' of W.W.2. The eyewitness accounts tell a very personal story of courage and endurance under truly lethal circumstances.
This war had to be won, otherwise everyone within the soviet union would be killed or enslaved. The soviet soldiers were not only fighting for there own survival, but also for there relatives and friends who could not defend themselves.
A terrible realisation for the soldiers and an inevitable confrontation with the nazies.
The book demonstrates that nightmare with describtions of officers and men forced to be innovative and new in the way war is waged.

Greatly enjoyed and gave me some real insights into a man I new little about.
I had read a book about his first wife, but that made him seem to me a rather dark character. Also some insights into his poetry, I'll be looking to buy some books of his poetry in the near future.

I'm a fan of Henry James novals', but found these short stories rather boring. Did not create the atmosphere that I need in any book I am reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatly enjoyed, 21 Nov 2013

The stories have humour and some sadness and also nostalgia.
They have a bit of everything, that makes one go back for more. I'm still reading these stories and spare them a bit as I don't want to finish them.
I shall be rereading them again, when I come to the end of the book.

Very good, but to short. Enjoyed what there was of the stories, and they were suspenseful.
Just not enough of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stories, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Atmospheric stories told by some of the great Russian writers' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. All the stories so far have brough me right in to the Russian way of life.
Have not enjoyed a book of short stories so much for a long time.

1.0 out of 5 stars The book did not describe what the title suggested, 18 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title of the book was misleading. The author seemed to deal with the third reich and its foundation, which I happen to be familier with, then the plight of homosexuals within the reich itself. The writer did not address the difficulties of individuals, but seemed to look at the system as a whole. I purchased the book for individual histories and stories of people caught in a terrible situation, not for a general history of the time, which I am well aware of. The auther meandered into the problems' confronting jews and others, which has already been looked at in many books and documentaries.
A general disappointment. Regards Anne Doyle.

Nice selection of stories by women writers, which makes a change from the point of view of Victorian writers. Delighted.
