en Limba Engleză Paperback – 05 May 2005
Olga Chekhova was the niece of playwright Anton Chekhov and a stunning Russian beauty. She was also a famous Nazi-era film actress, closely associated with Adolf Hitler.
After fleeing Bolshevik Moscow for Berlin in 1920, she was recruited by her composer brother Lev to work for Soviet intelligence. In return, her family were allowed to join her. Several of them were trapped in Berlin as the Red Army approached in 1945. As Olga had appeared in photographs with Hitler his entourage, the rest of her family in Moscow were waiting to be arrested by the NKVD secret police.
Based largely on new material, Antony Beevor has pieced together a breathtaking story of a family surviving through the Russian Revolution, the Civil War, the rise of Hitler and Stalin, and the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.
It's an extraordinary story from extraordinary times.

Recenzii

Compelling . . . as engaging a read as Stalingrad and Berlin
Fascinating. An intricate, gracefully told and often moving social history of a talented family in times of revolution, civil war, dictatorship and world conflict
A fascinating spy story, a delicious entertainment, a compelling investigation
An extraordinary drama of exile and espionage
Beevor uses the story to evoke a world - the vague ideological borderlands of Nazism and Communism
Antony Beevor, one of the finest narrative military historians now writing, is a master of revealing vignettes
A true story that is dramatic, evocative, and well worth unearthing
