Item No. ABJ-5065
From Nazi Occupation to the
Conquest of Germany as
seen by a Red Army Soldier
by Roman Kravchenko-Berezhnoy, foreword by David M. Glantz
As a teenager in Nazi-occupied Ukraine the author had one aim in his life, "I had a dream: to survive until our guys got back, become a soldier myself, get a submachine gun, and head westward with them. Our forces weren't moving westward, however. They were still busy retreating, somewhere there, on the Volga, in the Caucasus. It was a vague promise I had made to myself to 'sometime, someday'..."
Written as a journal of his experiences while a teenager during the German occupation and later, as a memoir of his Red Army service, Victims, Victors, describes the confusion and agony of the conquered, and, ultimately, the triumph over those who invaded his homeland and murdered its citizens.
This book is, however, much more than a common chronicle of wartime experiences. Victims, Victors provides inside detail and views that could not be found in Russian books printed during the Soviet era.
