Life and Fate (Part 2, Chs. 21-50) by Grossman

Show Notes

This week, Matt and Cameron keep up the pace in Vasily Grossman’s Life and Fate, covering Part 2, chapters 21 through 50. They’ll be covering everything from Klimov’s All Quiet on the Western Front moment in Battlefield Stalingrad to the death camps that take up much of the latter chapters for this part. Get ready to get sad, and tune in. 

Major themes: Why fight wars, no step on snake, not the purge exactly
