From the Publisher
Annotation Historian Catherine Merridale provides a history of World War II as it was experienced by the ordinary Russian soldier, the "Ivan" of her title. Merridale creates a narrative based on her research into Russian archives and her interviews with those who were there, telling how, because of the actions of their own leaders, the Russian army was poorly prepared for the Nazi onslaught. She also examines key battles, including the tank battle at Kursk and the awful Siege of Stalingrad. All of Russia suffered greatly under the Nazi onslaught, and millions of "Ivans" fought, and died, under the worst conditions. Near the end of the war, during the Russian Army's drive into Germany, to Berlin, they too inflicted awful horrors on the civilian population that got in their way. Merridale is unsparing in her descriptions of these atrocities and of the suffering that was endured, and she describes the changed men and women of Russia, whose rising expectations were cruelly dashed at the close of the war.
