    I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the era, country, politics, WWII or even just the Gulag itself The vastness of the Gulag is astounding From small camps to giant and from city prisons to tents in Siberia and all sizes in between The variety of work that was required was also quite extensive, from manufacturing to logging to mining to channel building With the quality of life that prisoners had to endure and how unprepared both they and their captures were I am surprised t I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the era, country, politics, WWII or even just the Gulag itself The vastness of the Gulag is astounding From small camps to giant and from city prisons to tents in Siberia and all sizes in between The variety of work that was ...
