About this title


The epic sequel to the best-selling Children of the Arbat follows the experiences of a Soviet tank commander in World War II as he fights his way from Siberia to Stalingrad and onward to Berlin.


This novel can stand alone, though the trilogy is best read in sequence. The whole makes a Tolstoy-scale epic of Soviet life, from the idealism of youth, through the confronting of reality, to a beaten disillusion. This last volume covers the bloody decade from Stalin's Terror to the turning point of World War II in 1943. Against this depressing backdrop, however, Rybakov creates romantic tension and suspense, as the reader roots for the coming together again of Sasha, the protagonist of the earlier volumes, and his still beloved Varya. Rybakov is an old-fashioned storyteller, with a keen sense of the compelling detail.

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. There may be extra postage charged due to book weight, insurance or delivery tracking requirements. All books are individually wrapped in paper and shipped in bubble-lined envelope mailers or boxes for extra protection. I will combine multiple book orders to reduce postage, whenever possible. I use USPS Media Mail for all domestic purchases. However, USPS Media Mail service to Alaska, Hawaii, US Protectorates, and APO/FPO can and probably will take longer to arrive than advertised by the USPS. If you prefer quicker service, please contact me first and I will provide the cost of upgraded service. If you have any questions, please contact me.
