"One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world". (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn). In the first month of the First World War the Russian campaign against the Germans creaks into gear.
Crippled by weak, indecisive leadership the Russian troops battle desperately, even as the inevitability of failure and their own sacrifice dawns.
Solzhenitsyn's astounding work of historical fiction is a portrait of pre-revolutionary Russia, a tragic war story, and an epic novel in the great Russian tradition.
