Passions: Vasily Grossman

Antony Beevor

Vasily Grossman, author of Life and Fate, is considered one of the unsung geniuses of the twentieth century. Antony Beevor’s fascination with Grossman was triggered whilst researching his masterly book on Stalingrad. It led him to edit A Writer atWar, a compilation of the great novelist’s astonishing wartime notebooks and journalism.

Antony Beevor is the author of StalingradBerlin: The Downfall 1945, and most recently The Mystery of Olga Chekhova. He is currently working on D-Day, his last major work on the Second World War.
