Overview

The epic World War II battles between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union are the subject of a vast literature, but little has been published in English on the experiences of ordinary Soviets—civilians and soldiers—who were sucked into a bitter conflict that marked their lives forever. Their struggle for survival, and their resistance to the invaders’ brutality in the occupied territories, is one of the great untold stories of the war.

This is why Nikolai Obryn’ba’s unforgettable, intimate memoir is so valuable. Written late in the author’s life, it tells of Operation Barbarossa, during which he was taken prisoner; the horrors of SS prison camps; his escape; his war fighting behind German lines as a partisan; and the world of suffering and tragedy around him. His perceptive, uncompromising account lays bare the everyday reality of war on the Eastern Front.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“….should be required reading for anyone concerned with our current problems with occupation of a country and an insurgency.”

“[Obryn’ba’s ] descriptions of life in a German POW camp offer unique insights into a little-discussed aspect of the Eastern Front.”

"Red Partisan is a rare and fascinating account of irregular warriors who, equipped mainly with small arms and improvised or captured weapons, fought the German occupiers with ingenuity and courage."

"Obryn’ba’s simple and candid yet gripping memoir presents a credible mosaic of vivid images of life in the Red Army during the harrowing first few months of war and unprecedented details about his participation in the brutal but shadowy partisan war that raged deep in the German army’s rear. A must read for those seeking a human face on this most inhuman of twentiety-century wars."
