War Through Children's Eyes

"Throughout history civilizations have been destroyed when invaders imposed their way of life on conquered populations. The vanquished can only hope that they will be able to regain their independence later. Literate peoples have left accounts of what this terrible experience meant to them: how they managed their misfortunes; how they tried to cope with the sudden collapse of their world; what they learned from it about themselves and the invaders. But these were the reports of adults. I know of no example other than the one presented here where the collapse of one civilization and its replacement by a radically different and inferior one has been reported from the perspective of children."

"Things were very different for the children who experienced first the collapse of Poland and the Russian invasion and later deportation into Russia. It is the accounts of those who were deported that are presented in this book."

—Bruno Bettelheim

We Shot the War

Zhivago's Secret Journey

Paolo Mancosu continues an investigation he began in his 2013 book Inside the Zhivago Storm, which the New York Review of Books described as "a tour de force of literary detection worthy of a scholarly Sherlock Holmes." In this book, Mancosu extends his detective work by reconstructing the network of contacts that helped Pasternak smuggle the typescripts of Doctor Zhivago outside the Soviet Union and following the vicissitudes of the typescripts when they arrived in the West. Drawing from a rich trove of archival documents, Mancosu details events that were treated as top secret by all those involved, vividly recounting the history of the publication of Pasternak’s epic work with all its human and political ramifications.
