This book could be War and Peace circa 1917 except that there’s not much peace in it – maybe the first 25 pages.  It could be called War and People instead.   And it’s not really historical fiction in that Pasternak didn’t have to do any research – he lived it.  But it is historical literature because it’s well over 50 years old now – of a time gone by.  That said,  it’s quite accurate historically. >>>>MORE >>>>
