Anna Reid will speak about her latest book, Leningrad: Tragedy of a City under Siege, 1941-44, which follows the three-year siege of Leningrad during World War II. Anna Reid answers many of the previously unanswered questions about the siege. How good a job did Leningrad’s leadership do – would many lives have been saved if it had been better organised? How much was Stalin’s and Moscow’s wariness of western-leaning Leningrad (formerly the Tsars’ capital, St Petersburg) a contributing factor? How close did Leningrad come to falling into German hands? And, above all, how did those who lived through it survive? (SallyConnew)
