Published in London by Folio Society. 2015. First Thus. Very Good Hardback. Spine has a marked lean. No inscriptions or bookplates. Very Good+ slipcase. Some marks to panels of slipcase. Edited and translated by Antony Beevor and Lyuba Vinogradova. Compelling analysis and vivid everyday observations are combined in the writings of this much-admired journalist. With over 50 contemporary images. Bound in quarter buckram with Modigliani paper sides, printed with a design by Raquel Leis Allion. Set in Abril with Grotesque display. 464 pages. 57 integrated black & white photographs and 5 maps. 9½" x 6¼". When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, the young Ukrainian writer Vasily Grossman was determined to aid the war effort in any way he could. Deemed unfit for military service, Grossman became a special correspondent for the Red Army newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda. His harrowing and unforgettable eyewitness accounts of the terrors of the Eastern Front, writes historian Max Hastings, are 'a wonderful portrait of the wartime experience of Russia … A worthy memorial to a remarkable man, Beevor and Lyuba Vinogradova have stitched together a compelling narrative from Vasily Grossman's notebooks, published articles, private letters and other contemporary memoirs. This volume features 56 integrated pictures, including images drawn from Grossman's own archive and several by the celebrated photojournalist Demitri Baltermants. Deeply sympathetic with the war’s victims as well as its heroes, A Writer at War brims with 'the finest descriptions ever of what Grossman himself called "the ruthless truth of war".'
