  • A remarkable addition to the literature of 1941-45...a wonderful portrait of the wartime experience of Russia... A worthy memorial to a remarkable man

    Max Hastings, Sunday Telegraph
  • Magnificent... Any war correspondent writing today about the horrors we are still being subjected to by ideologues, mean-spirited leaders and fanatics of various shades and faiths, should take the time to read him. There is a profound humanity in his prose, an abilitity for empathy and a capacity for rage that one rarely meets

    Omer Bartov, Times Literary Supplement
  • Grossman, like Isaac Babel twenty years before him, lifts war correspondence to new heights

    Literary Review
  • As a pithy account of war at its most extreme, this fascinating book will rarely be bettered

    James Delingpole, Mail on Sunday
  • Unforgettable... Antony Beevor and Luba Vinogradova have recovered nothing less than a lost classic of reportage

    Sean McCarthy, The Scotsman
