Just finished Ivan’s War by Catherine Merridale. It’s a chronicle of what it was like to be a soldier in the Soviet army in WWII. Spectacular book. It’s especially interesting when she talks about how Soviet propaganda affected life and emotion before, during, and after the war. Informative, moving, and written with great clarity. A triumph.
