Sing to Victory! : Song in Soviet Society during World War II, Hardback Book

Sing to Victory! : Song in Soviet Society during World War II Hardback

Hardback

Description

A woman wearing a ballgown singing in the snow for returning ski troops; a technician's tears ruining a master recording of a new wartime song; fresh recruits spontaneously standing and doffing their caps to a new song, thereby creating the new wartime anthem.

This well researched, multi-faceted book depicts the relationship between song and society during WWII in the USSR.

Chapter topics range from the creation and distribution of the songs to how the public received and shaped them.

The body of song that came out of that era created a true cultural legacy which reflected both the hearts of the individuals fighting as well as the narrative of the party and state in bringing the nation to victory.
