From the Publisher"Lisa A. Kirschenbaum has written a complex, insightful book, a sophisticated account of the interdependent relationship between personal memories, official myths, and the monuments they created."
-Jonathan M. House, The Journal of Military History
"One of the most refreshing aspects to this interesting and heartfelt book is that the author has drawn on a comparative historiography of war and memory in the twentieth century...to think about her subject, as well as positioning it in the context of the Soviet cultural history."
-Elizabeth White, Canadian Slavic Papers
"With this book Kirschenbaum has created yet another monument to the epic siege of Leningrad."
-Cynthia Simmons, Boston College, American Historical Review
"This book is superb....This deeply researched, elegantly written volume is appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as specialists on Russia, twentieth-century history, and the study of history and memory....This book is a signal contribution."
—Cathy A. Frierson, University of New Hampshire, The Historian
"Thanks to her clear reasoning and elegant style, theoretically founded but without too much jargon, the narrative is as exciting to read as any dramatized military history of Leningrad's defense." —Wim van Meurs, Radboud University Nijmegen: Canadian Journal of History
