Recalling the heroism and great losses in such battles as Smolensk, Stalingrad, Leningrad Moscow, and the narratives of many heroes and heroines who helped save the world for the Nazi evil.

accurately in Albert Axell’s book Greatest Russian War Stories: 1941–1945, saying, This was nonsense, of course

One of the most famous of the Night Witches, Nadezhda Popova, who herself flew 852 missions, earning her multiple medals and the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, described the situation a bit more accurately in Albert Axell’s book Greatest Russian War Stories: 1941–1945, saying, This was nonsense, of course. Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken is only the latest hit movie based on a fascinating true story from World War II. But have all the great stories from that war been mined by Hollywood? Not even close.

This book contains some of the greatest stories of wartime heroism, many now recorded here for the first time in the West. The heroes are Russian men and women fighting and dying for their country that has been treacherously attacked by Hitler's Germany. At that time it possessed the most powerful and ruthless army the world had ever seen. Facing the enemy was an 18-year-old women sniper - a hefty Red Army marine called her "a dragonfly" because she was so slight. But she managed to dispatch over 300 enemy troops. Later she was invited to visit America by Eleanor Roosevelt, the President's wife. She was also invited to visit wartime Great Britain. One chapter tells of hero-poet Mussa Jalil who joined the Soviet army in 1942 and, fighting at the front lines, was wounded and then captured, imprisoned, tortured and guillotined. In three years as a POW he wrote over 100 poems, many of them with unsurpassed depth of feeling, evoking the poet's limitless courage and love for his Motherland. The author met some of the heroes in this book. One of them, a woman pilot flew almost 1,000 missions over enemy lines, at night, in a small wooden, open-cockpit plane with a top speed of under 130 mph. She told the author that once when she was on a bombing mission, one of the bombs did not release and she had to lean out of the cockpit on a very cold night and release the bomb with her freezing fingers. The final chapter is a story of pure humanism. A decorated Russian pilot seeing an enemy who can be easily destroyed holds his fire and saves the life of the German. Some years after the war they have a prearranged meeting in a cafe in Germany. The story behind the story is revealed.

There are plenty of good histories of the Eastern Front, but most of them concentrate on mega-events, with the occasional human story thrown in. This book is all about human stories, the heroic, the desperate, the pathetic. I can't remember enjoying reading a book about the Second World War as much. It will be great to assign to my students.

I have read better recollections than this. Some of it reads like pure Stalinist propaganga rather than true experiences. Disappointed.
  • Nikobar
This was a compelling read. It gave a previously unknown insight into the challenges faced by Russia in the face of a ruthless and merciless enemy in dreadful weather conditions. It was of particular interest to read of numerous examples of great heroism by men and women of all ages in appalling situations. The examples of poetry were very moving.

Action was described by the author in very clear detail especially insight given to battle plans e.g. the Brest fortress. There were harrowing accounts of escape attempts, and ruthless attacks that brought fierce Russian resistance.

Previously unknown details of calm heroism by lady pilots, known as "night witches" and submariners in Arctic conditions were most informative. Also, the Russian qualities of compassion, improvisation, persistence and perceptiveness were repeated many times over in adversity.

I look forward to reading more articles by this author.
