THE VOLGA RISES IN EUROPE., Malaparte, Curzio.  Translated by David Moore.
2 Malaparte, Curzio. Translated by David Moore. THE VOLGA RISES IN EUROPE.
Edinburgh Birlinn 0739419307 / 9780739419304 Book Club Hard Cover Very Good - Good 
281 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "During the summer of 1941, the Italian journalist and novelist Curzio Malaparte was the only front-line war correspondent in the whole of Russia. His account of events there is not unique for this reason alone: his astonishing eye for detail and intimate knowledge of the country lend his record a depth of understanding rarely found in other war reporting, and his attention to the human dimension of the conflict reveals him to be a man of humanity and compassion. In (this book he) provides a peerless illustration of the human dimension of the Eastern Front. His ability to spot details is uncanny; his ability to build upon them to express the horror and absurdity of war is astonishing. Here you get a complete panorama of the front, with views of civilians in their war-ravaged homes; soldiers readying themselves for battle; and graphic descriptions of the most furious combat of WWII. Expelled from the southern war zone on the orders of Goebbels in September 1941, Malaparte spent four months under house arrest before being sent to cover events in Finland. From there he reported the Siege of Leningrad - one of the seminal events played out on the Eastern Front. This dense, all-encompassing, often poetic chronicle leaves you speechless. It's literally one of a kind." Minor browning to pages and edges of text block, creasing and tiny tears at bottom of spine, minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has two small tears with creases, tape repairs, one small chip, light to moderate wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, tiny dint on spine.
