Coming of Age, the fourth and final volume in the series The Soviet Union at War, is the unadorned story of Russian life told by an observant person who lived it. Elena Skrjabina tells how the tremendous military casualties suffered in World War I hit home, how almost all their family and friends were losing sons or relatives at the front. She describes the pillaging of estates and how the supposed class enemies were arrested. Her impressions of the famine on the Volga in the post-Civil War period, the tremendous housing shortage, the American Relief Administration, the Leningrad famine in the early twenties that turned people into beasts-all flash through the pages of these remarkable memoirs.
About the Author:
Elena Skrjabina (1906-1996) was professor emeritus of Russian at the University of Iowa. She grew up in St. Petersburg (Leningrad) where her father was a member of the last Russian Parliament before the 1917 Communist revolution. From 1941, when the Germans invaded Russia, until 1945, when the Allied forces won the war, Elena Skrjabina suffered many hardships that she chronicles in her works.
