Gorbachevskii was a junior officer in the 31st Army who first saw front-line duty as a rifleman in the 30th Army. This book recounts his three years on some of World War II's grimmest but forgotten battlefields: the campaign for Rzhev, the bloody struggle to retake Belorussia, and the bitter final fighting in East Prussia.
