In the summer of 1941, as the Germans invade Russia, newspaper reporter Vasily Grossman is swept to the frontlines, witnessing some of the most savage atrocities in Russian history. As Grossman follows the Red Army from the defence of Moscow, to the carnage at Stalingrad, to the Nazi genocide in Treblinka, his writings paint a vividly raw and devastating account of Operation Barbarossa during World War Two. Grossmans notebooks, war diaries, personal correspondence and newspaper articles are meticulously woven into a gripping narrative and provide a piercing look into the life of the author behind recent Sunday Times bestseller Stalingrad. A Writer at War stands as an unforgettable eyewitness account of the Eastern Front and places Grossman as the leading Soviet voice of the ruthless truth of war. A remarkable addition to the literature of 1941 1945...a wonderful portrait of the wartime experience of Russia... A worthy memorial to a remarkable man Sunday Telegraph

  1. Rejält obehaglig men nödvändig
    Göran Herrström, 18 juni 2023

    Det mest slående är hur historien upprepar sig. De många fältslagen, pansarattackerna, luftvärnskanonerna och bombningarna låter som ett manus till det som nu sker i Ukraina. Det måste finnas smartare sätt att föra krig på, men man tycks upprepa tidigare generationers metoder, häpnadsväckande nog p g a tradition, snarare än förnuft.
    Också intressant med Ukrainas historia efter ryska revolutionen, hur Stalins plundringar ledde till att några välkomnade den tyska ockupationen, och hur detta... Läs hela recensionen

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 *

Övrig information

Vasily Grossman was born in 1905 in the Ukrainian town of Berdichev. In 1941, he became a war reporter for the Red Army newspaper, Red Star, and came to be regarded as a legendary war hero, reporting on the defence of Stalingrad, the fall of Berlin and the consequences of the Holocaust. Life and Fate, the masterpiece he completed in 1960, was considered a threat to the totalitarian regime, and Grossman was told that there was no chance of the novel being published for another 200 years. Grossman died in 1964. Antony Beevor first came across the notebooks of Vasily Grossman when working on his boook Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize. He has also written Berlin: The Downfall 1945, which has been translated into twenty-five languages, and most recently, The Mystery of Olga Chekhova. He is currently the chairman of the Society of Authors. Dr Lyubov Vinogradova is a researcher, translator and freelance journalist, studied biology at university in Moscow, as well as taking degrees in English and German. She received a PhD in microbiology in 2000. She has worked with Antony Beevor for the last ten years on his three most recent books as well as with other British and American historians.
