‘One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world’ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

In the first month of the First World War the Russian campaign against the Germans creaks into gear. Crippled by weak, indecisive leadership the Russian troops battle desperately, even as the inevitability of failure and their own sacrifice dawns. Solzhenitsyn’s astounding work of historical fiction is a portrait of pre-revolutionary Russia, a tragic war story, and an epic novel in the great Russian tradition.

Review:

"One of the greatest and most influential writers of the 20th century" ( Washington Post)

"It is written in anger yet with understanding, in scorn yet with compassion. Its characters are universal and timeless. A great book. Read it for an understanding of the human condition in time of war and defeat" (James Callaghan Guardian)

"There is a magnificence about it; not in the writing…but in the determination to make the reader understand that here was a nation careening into a century more tragic for it than any has been for any nation ever" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Solzhenitsyn's life…spanned all the decades of Soviet history, and his moral authority is unique among his generation" ( Independent)

"The great dissident's massive historical novel" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

An epic war story from Solzhenitsyn - the great 20th century Russian writer who served eight years in the labour camps for his work
