Este libro reúne los recuerdos de cientos de ellas, mujeres que fueron francotiradoras, condujeron tanques o trabajaron en hospitales de campaña. Su historia no es un relato de la guerra ni de los combates, es la historia de hombres y mujeres en guerra. ¿Qué les ocurrió? ¿Cómo les transformó? ¿De qué tenían miedo? ¿Cómo era aprender a matar? Estas mujeres, la mayoría por primera vez en sus vidas, cuentan la parte no heroica de la guerra, a menudo ausente de los relatos de los veteranos. Hablan de la suciedad y del frío, del hambre y de la violencia sexual, de la angustia y de la sombra omnipresente de la muerte. Alexiévich deja que sus voces resuenen en este libro estremecedor, que pudo reescribir en 2002 para introducir los fragmentos tachados por la censura y material que no se había atrevido a usar en la primera versión."--Page 4 of cover.Summary: This book is a confession, a document and a record of people's memory. More than 200 women speak in it, describing how young girls, who dreamed of becoming brides, became soldiers in 1941. More than 500,000 Soviet women participated on a par with men in the Second World War, the most terrible war of the 20th century. Women not only rescued and bandaged the wounded but also fired a sniper's rifle, blew up bridges, went reconnoitering and killed... They killed the enemy who, with unprecedented cruelty, had attacked their land, their homes and their children. Soviet writer of Bychorussia, Svetlana Alexiyevich spent four years working on the book, visiting over 100 cities and towns, settlements and villages and recording the stories and reminiscences of women war veterans. The Soviet press called the book "a vivid reporting of events long past, which affected the destiny of the nation as a whole." The most important thing about the book is not so much the front-line episodes as women's heart-rending experiences in the war. Through their testimony the past makes an impassioned appeal to the present, denouncing yesterday's and today's fascism...
