Mansur Abdulin fought in the front ranks of the Soviet infantry against the German invaders at Stalingrad, Kursk and on the banks of Dnepr. This is his extraordinary story. After volunteering to fight for the Red Army in 1942 and completing his course at the Tashkent infantry school, Abdulin fought on the Stalingrad front and during the encirclement of the German Sixth Army. He then participated in the bitter, decisive battle at Kursk and harried the Germans as they retreated across the Steppe to the banks of the Dnepr river, where he was seriously wounded. His vivid account of a ruthless war on the Eastern Front gives a rare insight into the reality of the fighting, and into the tactics and mentality of the Soviet army. In his own words, and with a remarkable clarity of recall, he describes what combat was like on the ground, face to face with a skilled, deadly and increasingly desperate enemy.
