Review by

The quote on the front cover by Simon Sebag Montefiore "a heartbreaking and thrilling story of peerless heroism and misery on a barely imaginable scale" sums it up perfectly. The author's account is a perfect mixture of military, political and social history, enlivened vastly by the interviews conducted with ordinary survivors about their experiences and those of their families and comrades who died.
