The Soviet home front, 1941-1945 : a social and economic history of the USSR in World War II by John Barber( Book )

13 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Barber and Mark Harrison explore how the political and economic system of the USSR stood up to the German invasion which penetrated deep into Soviet territory, and to the colossal burdens of total war. They examine the ways in which the Soviet leaders rallied their people and their resources, and show how the Soviet people themselves lived and worked in wartime. They give an account of the role played by the USSR's British and Amerian allies; and they try to assess how far the terrible experience of war changed the social, multinational and economic order of the Soviet Union, and influenced its long-term political future."--Page 4 of cover

Life and death in besieged Leningrad, 1941-44( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the winter of 1941-42 Leningrad experienced the worst famine ever to occur in a developed society. With all the land links to the rest of the Soviet Union cut by the German army, food supplies were reduced to starvation level. In a few months, over half a million people died. Thanks to the Road of Life across Lake Ladoga, supplies increased, but, with the siege lasting for 872 days, casualties among the weakened population continued to rise. Deaths in Leningrad would ultimately exceed those of any city in the Second World War." "This book examines the nature and consequences of the conditions created by the German blockade of Leningrad between September 1941 and January 1944."--BOOK JACKET
The soviet defence-industry complex from Stalin to Khrushchev( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on collaborative research by Russian and British scholars in the hitherto secret archives of the Soviet government, the party and the armed forces, this book is a pioneering investigation of the economic dynamics and social and political significance of Soviet defence production. It examines the origins of the Soviet defence drive in the internal tensions and threat perceptions of the interwar period. It reveals how the advent of new weapons such as the atomic bomb and the ballistic missile brought science and production into a new and even more secretive relationship, and how Soviet industry, the army and the security organs vied for control over the defence production process."--Jacket

LENINGRAD 1941-41 by Sergeĭ Viktorovich I︠A︡rov( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book recounts one of the greatest tragedies of the twentieth century: the siege of Leningrad. It is based on the searing testimony of eyewitnesses, some of whom managed to survive, while others were to die in streets devastated by bombing, in icy houses, or the endless bread queues. All of them, nevertheless, wanted to pass on to us the story of the torments they endured, their stoicism, compassion and humanity, and of how people reached out to each other in the nightmare of the siege. Though the siege continues to loom large in collective memory, an overemphasis on the heroic endurance of the victims has tended to distort our understanding of events. In this book, which focuses on the 'Time of Death', the harsh winter of 1941-2, Sergey Yarov adopts a new approach, demonstrating that if we are to truly appreciate the nature of this suffering, we must face the full realities of people's actions and behaviour. Many of the documents published here - letters, diaries, memoirs and interviews not previously available to researchers or retrieved from family archives - show unexpected aspects of what it was like to live in the besieged city. Leningrad changed, and so did the morals, customs and habits of Leningraders. People wanted at all costs to survive. Their notes about the siege reflect a drama which cost a million people their lives. There is no spurious cheeriness and optimism in them, and much that we might like to pass over. That we may not do. We have a duty to know the whole, bitter truth about the siege, the price that had to be paid in order to stay human in a time of brutal inhumanity
Life and death in besieged Leningrad, 1941-1944 by John Barber( )

From 1941-1944 Leningrad saw by far the largest-scale famine ever to occur in a developed society.

Using declassified documents from Party and State archives in Moscow and St Petersburg and interviews with survivors, the authors have produced the most informed and detailed analysis to date of the impact of the siege on the lives and health of the people of Leningrad
