Reviews

One needs time and patience to read Stalingrad, but it is worth it. Moving majestically from Berlin to Moscow to the boundless Kazakh steppe... A multitude of lives and fates are played out against a vast panoramic history * Evening Standard, *Book of the Week* *
If you have read Grossman before, you will already very likely know that you urgently want to read Stalingrad. If you haven't, I can only tell you that when you do read this novel, you will not only discover that you love his characters and want to stay with them - that you need them in your life as much as you need your own family and loved ones - but that at the end, despite having finished an 892-page novel, you want to read it again -- Julian Evans * Daily Telegraph *
This is a big event... [Stalingrad] gives voice to a dizzying array of experiences... [you] feel as though you are there, wandering through those devastated streets among the starving, dead, and mad -- Claire Allfree * Daily Mail *
A dazzling prequel... His descriptions of battle in an industrial age are some of the most vivid ever written... Stalingrad is Life and Fate's equal. It is, arguable, the richer book - shot through with human stories and a sense of life's beauty and fragility -- Luke Harding * Observer *
Few works of literature since Homer can match the piercing, unshakably humane gaze that Grossman turns on the haggard face of war * The Economist *
