Description
Eleven weeks after Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa, his 1941 surprise attack on the Soviet Union, Leningrad was surrounded. The siege was not lifted for two and a half years, by which time some three quarters of a million Leningraders had died of starvation. This history by the author of The Shaman's Coat: A Narrative History of Siberia is interwoven with personal accounts of daily life drawn from diarists on both sides, revealing the Nazis' deliberate attempt to starve Leningrad into surrender, the incompetence and cruelty of Soviet war leadership, and the horrors experienced by soldiers on the front lines. Above all it is the story of life in the blockaded city, where some residents resorted to looting, murder, and cannibalism, while others displayed extraordinary bravery and self-sacrifice.
