Nikolai Litvin recalls his experiences from his tenure as a Red Army soldier in his memoir 800 Days on the Eastern Front. Litvin transcribed his memories of the war seventeen years after he left the military, which provided him ample time to process his experiences and formulate complete thoughts on what happened. Using a concise writing style, Litvin packs his memoir with vivid details of military operations and offers subtle details about Stalinist thinking and Soviet life. The memoir contains some significant Soviet bias, and Litvin’s point of view is clearly impacted by the unique experiences of a Red Army soldier. To truly understand 800 Days on the Eastern Front, the reader must decipher how Litvin understands his experiences, the impacts of internalized Stalinist thoughts and how Litvin reflects them, and how Litvin reveals the truths he believes about the war.
