What Reviewers Are Saying
Gripping recollections by a Russian of his spell as a boy forced labourer, during the German occupation of Alderney, in 1942-3 when he was in his middle teens: a tale of barbarity, horror and courage, crowned in his casee with survival. Sidelights on Stalin's and on Gorbachev's Russia provide an extra fascination. Cast in the form of letters to his friend Brian Bonnard, who edits the book, and translated by Galina Chernakova.
