Vasily Grossman’s Life and Fate is considered the twentieth century’s War and Peace but readers do not always realise that it is the second half of a two part work. Now the first volume, Stalingrad, is being published for the first time in English with a sparkling new translation by Robert and Elizabeth Chandler. Robert Chandler is held in high esteem as one of Britain’s leading Russian translators, especially of Grossman and Platanov, and we are delighted to welcome him to tell us more of this magnificent book.
