KIRKUS REVIEW

As war correspondent -- and one-time editor of the letters of Lincoln Steffens, Ella Winter had substantial background for her extensive travels through many war-ravaged areas of Soviet Russia. She has written at length, and sympathetically, though without any great distinction, of the extreme suffering of the Russian people, particularly of the problems of women and children. The work of the unbelievable Russian women as laborers, fighters, guerrillas, fliers, organizers and citizens; the interesting social problems such as the new marriage and divorce decrees, problems of orphans of the war, food, black markets -- all background for Russia's courage and sacrifice. And -- if it is still needed -- additional material for continued horror of the German as invader.
