Description
"All offers of surrender from Leningrad must be rejected," wrote Adolf Hitler on September 29, 1941, at the outset of Operation Barbarossa. "We have no interest in keeping even a proportion of the city's population alive." Drawing on newly available eyewitness accounts and diaries, Michael Jones chronicles the human story of the 872-day siege of the city, in which nearly a million people died. He reveals the true horrors of the ordeal, including long suppressed stories of looting, criminal gangs, and cannibalism, yet also shows the immense psychological resources of Leningrad's citizens, who heroically staged a performance of Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony at the height of the siege.
