This review is from: Red Road from Stalingrad: Recollections of a Soviet Infantryman (Hardcover)
Published wartime memoirs by former Soviet soldiers are comparatively rare (compared to British, US or German ones), which is unfortunate given the huge scale and utterly ruthless nature of the land war in Russia, of which many today are unaware. In my view, this is a remarkable, unassuming account of one man's experience of WW2. The author shows loyalty to Communist ideals (not unusual in Russia) but it is also an emotional account, demonstrating the fortitude and suffering of the Soviet people. Well worth a read.
