"Cohen is a gifted writer with a special talent for rendering mood and atmosphere, and this is a tremendous story, but he fails to explore it in all of its complexity. Yes, the partisans of Vilna were heroes, but Cohen turns them into superheroes, which only detracts from the courage of their acts."
