Product description

Review

"A remarkable addition to the literature of 1941-45...a wonderful portrait of the wartime experience of Russia... A worthy memorial to a remarkable man" (Max Hastings Sunday Telegraph)

"Magnificent... Any war correspondent writing today about the horrors we are still being subjected to by ideologues, mean-spirited leaders and fanatics of various shades and faiths, should take the time to read him. There is a profound humanity in his prose, an abilitity for empathy and a capacity for rage that one rarely meets" (Omer Bartov Times Literary Supplement)

"Grossman, like Isaac Babel twenty years before him, lifts war correspondence to new heights" (Literary Review)

"As a pithy account of war at its most extreme, this fascinating book will rarely be bettered" (James Delingpole Mail on Sunday)

"Unforgettable... Antony Beevor and Luba Vinogradova have recovered nothing less than a lost classic of reportage" (Sean McCarthy The Scotsman)

Book Description

A Writer at War offers the one outstanding eye-witness account of the war on the Eastern Front and perhaps the best descriptions ever of what Grossman called 'the ruthless truth of war'.
