    1. This short but powerful novel begins with Ivan Tsyareshka escaping from a Nazi concentration camp in the Austrian Alps and embarking on a desperate flight to reach safety in Trieste. He is joined by another prisoner, an Italian woman, Giulia, whom he is at first reluctant to take along, fearing she will hold him back. But Ivan is an upright and compassionate man and cannot bring himself to abandon her. What follows is a tense and gripping escape tale of two people fighting against the odds to es [...]

    4. Удивительная история, очень вдохновляет на подвиги ради близких и не очень людей, человечества в целом.

    6. Классика советской военной прозы времён позднего Хрущёва.
