Default Book Review: The War Within

Advertise Here

"The War Within" is a book about the siege of Leningrad written by Boston University professor Alexis Peri. Her primary sources are personal diaries of ordinary Leningraders which were declassified by the Russian government in the 2000s.

Unfortunately, rather than telling the story of how ordinary people managed to survive through the siege, Ms. Peri seems to be more interested in how they perceived their genders, sexuality, etc. It's an extremely inward focused book dealing mostly with psychology. I put the book down for good after reading only about 1/4.

Skip this book. There's little of interest to preppers or anyone else who isn't majoring in feminist gender studies. If you want to read a good book about the Leningrad siege read "Leningrad: The Epic Siege of WWII" which I reviewed recently.
