C.P. Snow has it right: When I read his review, all of the thoughts and feelings I had when I read 'The 900 Days: The Siege of Leningrad' years ago came rushing back into my consciousness with the same searing impact as before. This is a truly magnificent historical document. Salisbury painstakingly, and without any attempt at affective connotation, presents the most detailed account of the heroism, the triumphs and the tragedy of the people of Leningrad, during their almost-three-year endurance of the German siege of the city during WWII. And Salisbury even finds the grace and the historian's restraint to carefully present detailed documentation to also show the German troops, agressors as they were, as humans caught up in that Great Insanity. William Shirer might have done well to study Salisbury's work.
