5.0 out of 5 stars Same war, another perspective, 25 Mar 2010
This review is from: 800 Days on the Eastern Front: A Russian Soldier Remembers World War II (Modern War Studies) (Hardcover)
This is the first wartime biography from the soviot perspective that I have read. It is a little dis-jointed in places but it was a big war. The book tries to set out the grander scale of the war in relation to the soldier and it does manage this quite well. I recall one point in which the dneiper river (sic) is being crossed. The same river was being defended by a german in the book 'sniper on the eastern front.' Bit of an interesting cross over. A recommended read for the wartime biography buff. Dont expect huge revelations, he was one man in an army of millions which to me gives it a more personal touch.
