THE RING OF NINE
by Vasily Petrovich Kuznetsov (1918-1994)
(translator and editor Maria Kuroshchepova)
The Soviets. Allies during the war, enemies shortly after. One of them talks about one of the most harrowing chapters of human history in general and World War Two in particular – the Siege of Leningrad.
This unusual book is a first-person account of the Leningrad Blockade during World War II, translated and edited by Maria K. This work started off as a series of journals written by Maria’s late grandfather, Vasily Petrovich Kuznetsov, as he experienced these events. (approx. 69,000 words)
This is not historical fiction. This was one man’s reality.
