The correspondent and author of Don't Surrender gives an account of his last assignment, with the Russian tank units, published in Russian before his death in October, . Grim, spare, this is once again testimony to the Russian fighting spirit. Pollakov first visited the Kirow works, which were transplanted to the German penetration; next a tank instruction center; then on to the front where he spent the winter months with the advancing Russian tanks. Across the frozen Lake , through forests, the tanks moved on, liberating villages as they went, inflicting substantial losses. Individual exploits round out this phase of Russia at war, -- the death of a Commisnor in command, the tank that withstood for days , the dog that carried ammunition under fire, etc. Check market of earlier book.
