Leningrad: State of Siege

Leningrad: State of Siege Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“All offers of surrender from Leningrad must be rejected,” wrote Adolph Hitler on September 29, 1941. “In this struggle for survival, we have no interest in keeping even a proportion of the citys population alive.” During the 900-day siege that followed, the German High Command deliberately planned to eradicate the citys population through starvation. By the time the siege ended in January 1944, almost a million people had died.

In Leningrad, military historian Michael Jones chronicles the horrors of this epic siege, while at the same time portraying the astonishing power of the human will in the face of even the direst catastrophe. Drawing on newly available sources, Leningrad is a riveting account of one of the most harrowing sieges of world history.
