Catalog Description : The Soviet Union emerged as one of the key victors in the Second World War (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia). Yet the war was devastating for the country and its people and victory came at a tremendous price. This course reexamines the impact of the war on the Soviet Uion, what kind of war effort took place on the Eastern Front and in the rear of the Soviet Union, and what kind of victory was achieved. To help address the themes of the course we will read a variety of works and documents including official government documents, personal diaries, letters, and memoirs many of which until recently were either unknown or unpublished in the West.
