Red Sky at Noon
Red Sky at Noon - Simon Sebag Montefiore
The author mentions in the epilogue that a few parts of the book are based on the historical figures and events of the time and a large part is a pure fiction.I saw Silver Socks as one of the main characters. The atrocities inflicted by the German Nazis and Russians during the second world war are also captured by Montefiore and whilst violent and unpleasant, they make you aware of what was happening during the Battle of Stalingrad - something I knew little about. Erleuchtung ist in uns The deftness in crafting a deeply engaging story is only enriched by his skills as historian.

Red Sky at Noon (Moscow Trilogy #2) by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Switching between the frontline on the Russian steppes and Stalin in the Kremlin, this is an EXCITING FAST-PACED ADVENTURE AND A LAMENT FOR LOVE IN DARK AND BRUTAL TIMES. Day One rated only a 2 out of 5 and I was ready to mark it as DNF.Stalin organizes criminals, convicts, and political prisoners into penal battalions known as Smertniki, the Dead Ones, who are thrown into battle as cannon fodder to be redeemed only by combat death or wounds. Relief came with the declaration of war and secondment to the French Air Force, but when France was overrun, Jo fled to the South of France where at Bordeaux he joined a group of Polish Airman on a ship bound for England.He flew 56 bombing missions in Wellingtons and was awarded the DFM.

Personally, I was able to see past both the dialogue and the romanticism. More endearing is the account of his daughter, Svetlana Stalina, who is a schoolgirl but finds herself in love with a 40-year-old journalist.Benya Golden is a Jewish author, who finds himself on the wrong side of the law in Russia which is under the brutal dictatorship of Josef Stalin. There were some coincidences that seemed unlikely.Switching between the frontline on the Russian steppes and Stalin in the Kremlin, this is an EXCITING FAST-PACED ADVENTURE AND A LAMENT FOR LOVE IN DARK AND BRUTAL TIMES.
