Praise

The brutality and mindlessness of battle could hardly be more trenchantly depicted than in this account of the most ferocious warfare of all time… Hofmann provides a sterling translation as well as an insightful overview that puts the work in context. This book belongs on every shelf that hosts Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front.
— Library Journal

…a shattering novel of Germany’s war against Russia. For stripping war of any glamour and exposing the sheer physical horror of modern conflict it deserves to stand next to Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front.
— David Cesarani, Evening Standard Books of the Year

Ledig’s constant shifting of narrative, and his ability to capture the essence of chaos within a deceptively tight framework, make his 1955 novel an important contribution to war literature.
— Times Literary Supplement

…Slender but powerful account of the brutal fighting outside Leningrad in the summer of 1942…Ledig’s style is straightforward and unremarkable, but his shockingly modern view of war is anything but.
— Publisher’s Weekly
