900 Days: The Siege of Leningrad

900 Days: The Siege of Leningrad Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Nazi siege of Leningrad from 1941 to 1944 was one of the most gruesome episodes of World War II. Nearly three million people endured it; just under half of them died. For twenty-five years the distinguished journalist and historian Harrison Salisbury pieced together this remarkable narrative of villainy and survival, in which the city had much to fear-from both Hitler and Stalin.

Book News Annotation:

The World War II siege of Leningrad by the Nazi armies was one of the most destructive of the war, killing up to 1.5 million people. Journalist Salisbury constructed his narrative of the siege by using documentary, archival evidence and interviews with survivors. His work, describing both military and civilian experiences, reflects as badly on Stalin and the Communist Party as it does on the besiegers. This is a paperbound reprint of the 1985 edition.
