Russia: The Story of War
Russia: The Story of War4,4 10 5 Scritto da: Gregory Carleton Letto da: James Cameron Stewart
While outsiders view Russia as an aggressor, Russians themselves see a country surrounded by enemies. Time and again, history has called upon Russia to play the savior-of Europe, of Christianity, of civilization itself-and its victories have come at immense cost. In this telling, even defeats lose their sting. Isolation becomes a virtuous destiny and the whole of its bloody history a point of pride.
War is the unifying thread of Russia's national epic, one that transcends its wrenching ideological transformations. As Putin's Russia asserts itself in ever bolder ways, knowing how the story of its war-torn past shapes the present is essential to understanding its self-image and worldview.
