4.0 out of 5 stars Captures the ferocity of the Leningrad Campaign
A very good first person account of the campaign around Leningrad. The bravery and the bloodshed are somewhat understated, but at a very tactical level it does capture some of the ferocity of the engagements and battlefield. Even so, a small citicism is that the words do sometimes manage to hide the true human costs of this particular campaign.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure how much is fiction
This is OK but I must admit I did not finish it. I am not sure how much of it is fiction and how much is true. The level of detail in the most mundane conversations make this read more like an historical novel than a factual war time biography

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Perspective On The Siege Of Leningrad, 4 Aug 2014

This review is from: Red Sniper on the Eastern Front (Kindle Edition)
This is a very interesting book written from the Russian perspective. Having worked in Russia and in St Petersburg in particular I am only too aware of how fresh the siege of Leningrad still is in the psyche of the citizens. This book provides an interesting insight not only into the Russian view of the defense of Leningrad itself but also into the selfless mindset of those defending their city. This is definitely a book worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars always interesting to hear it from the people who fought, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red Sniper on the Eastern Front (Kindle Edition)
Very interesting insight into life in Leningrad and on the nearby front. It is written with the Soviet sensors in mind, never the less it is a book that grabs the attention. Very sad that this soldier lost his family in Leningrad, and it allows us to understand why he, and his comrades had so much hatred for the enemy and Hitlers ill judgement and naivety in invading Russia
