A propos de cet article

645pp w/ fold-out color Tannenburg map in rear. First UK edition - third impression. "This is the work which Solzhenitsyn has described as having long been "the chief artistic design of my life." AUGUST 1914 is the first of a series of interlinked novels whose grand theme is the growing pains of modern Russia. Its first publication is a literary event of world-wide importance. In August 1914 the Russian army, ill-equipped though greatly superior in numbers, in response to the call of the Allies in the West advanced too rapidly into East Prussia and was destroyed by the Germans at Tannenberg. In sixty-odd chapters, most of them covering the eleven fatal days of the campaign, Solzhenitsyn introduces us to a large cast of characters from all walks of life.DJ chipped.
