У войны не женское лицо = The Unwomanly Face of War, Svetlana Aleksievich, Abdolmajid Ahmadi (Translator)
Svetlana Alexandrovna Alexievich (born 31 May 1948) is a Belarusian investigative journalist and non-fiction prose writer who writes in Russian. She was awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature "for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time". She is the first writer from Belarus to receive the award.

We usually think of wars as something that men do. Boys play with toy soldiers and toy guns, and play with real things when they get older, right? But women have been fighting in wars throughout history. We just don't know their stories. We know the stories of men. The women remain in the background, mostly silent, occasionally telling the stories of the war from the accepted 'manly' perspective. Until now.
"Everything that we know about the war we were told by men. We are the prisoners of "manly

For the first time, Nobel Prize winning author Svetlana Alexievich's award winning first book The Unwomanly Face of War is available in English. Over the course of twenty six grueling years, Alexievich interviewed female veterans of World War II. Unlike their American counterparts who played their part in the war effort at home, Soviet women gave up their lives for the Motherland and Stalin and enlisted to fight on the front lines. Yet, rather than returning home as war heroes, the women were of ...more

أتذكر جيدًا ذلك اليوم الذي أعلنت فيه الأكاديمية السويدية فوز الصحفية البيلاروسية "سفيتلانا أليكسييفيتش" بجائزة نوبل للآداب لعام ٢٠١٥ "لكتابتها ذات الأصوات المتعددة، والتي أصبحت رمزا حيا لمعاناة وشجاعة الإنسان في زمننا"!

كنت حينها أشاهد بثًّا حيًّا لمراسم الإعلان عن الفائز وأنا أتوقع، كما توقع كثيرون مثلي، أن تذهب الجائزة لأديب معروف مثل هوراكي موراكامي أو ميلان كونديرا أو فيليب روث. وأذكر جيدًا بعد أن خرجت سارة دانيوس، رئيسة الأكاديمية السويدية، من خلف ذلك الباب الشهير وأعلنت بأن الجائزة من نصيب

Svetlana Alexievich also lets the victims or heroes speak here again. The emotional portrayal of many women who went to war for love of "fatherland" is impressive and frightening. Anyone who believes in sympathy with the Soviet soldiers of World War II, the horror of entering the war, and the inability of society to accept the return of women as normal women will not want to leave this book out of their hands.

World War II, the Germans are marching toward Moscow. Men and boys have answered the call to defend the Motherland. War was life...but surprisingly, teenage girls and young women signed up to go to the front. Women served as snipers, traffic controllers, medical assistants, surgeons, anti-aircraft gunners and sappers to name a few wartime jobs. They were doggedly determined to fight for Russia, often insisting on being in the front lines. Nobel laureate Svetlana Alexievich "...brings together a ...more

My specialty... My speciality is men's haircuts...
A girl comes... I don't know how to cut her hair. She has luxuriant wavy hair. The commander enters the dugout. "Give her a man's haircut."
"But she's a woman."
"No, she's a soldier. She'll be a woman again after the war."


In the West we often think of women's role in WWII as being in the factories. The Rosie the Riveter movement of helping make all the supplies for the men out on the front. However, in the Soviet Union, almost one million women enl

This author tackles the personal cost of war on woman, those who served and those who were civilians during the second world war. These personal accounts, some just paragraphs, some a few pages, but all heartfelt and heartbreaking. We have read many books, fiction and non that chronicle men's experiences and after effects, but very few women. Ordinary women I should say, who were living normal lives but feeling compelled or just caught up in the tangled and long reaching call to war.

من الجميل عرض صورة اخرى للحرب.
صوت نسائي يعرض الحرب من وجهة نظر المرأة التي كانت فعالة في هذه الحرب الدموية خلافا لما كان لدي من معلومات.
كنت اعرف ان مشاركة المرأة في الحرب العالمية الثانية اقتصرت على المعونة الطبية والعمل بالمصانع.
ولكنها في هذه الحرب كانت قناصة وتبحث عن الألغام وحتى قائدة طائرة.
الكتاب اقرب الى تحقيقات صحفية وأكن ببلاغة ادبية رائعة، تجعلك تكره الحرب .
الحرب ليست فقط اشتباك وقتل وتراجع وتقدم. الحرب ككل مكتمل من الغسالة الى الطباخة الى الممرضة الى الطبيبة الى المقاتلة.

This is first real translation of Alexievich's first published book into English - an earlier effort was from a Soviet publishing house, which amputated the book through censorship.

If in the days of the old Soviet Union, you referred to 'the war', there could only be one war. The Great Patriotic War, as it is still called, burned and ravaged the countryside and left casualties in the tens of millions. It still defines Russia to this day - every town still has its memorials, political enemies are

This is riveting. I hated every time I had to stop to do something else. It is what I am looking for every time I pick up a book about war. Are women perhaps better at baring their souls, expressing emotions and revealing their innermost thoughts? The book seems to prove this.

EVERYBODY should read this, men and women alike.

It is an important book.

A book about war - all wars.

This is a difficult book to read because it captures emotions. It shows man at his lowest, but also love and generosity an

ولكن كان بِودِّي أن أكون جميلة أيضًا.


للحرب وجه أنثوي، وجه أنثوي قبيح، مروّع. كل شيء يُهدّر. روح الإنسان تَهرم في الحرب.
في الحرب تنسى كل شيء، تنسى حياتك السابقة كلها.. والحب تنساه.
هل يمكن الحديث عن هذا؟ ما الذي يُمكِن التعبير عنه بالكلمات، وبمشاعرنا؟
كيف كان من الممكن البقاء على قيد الحياة أمام تجرب الموت هذه التى لا تنتهي، يُشاهدن هذا يومًا بعد يوم. ويُفكّرن.

This is by all accounts an excellent book, and one which captures the emotional struggle of Soviet women who served during the Second World War.

Yet I have one strong reservation for readers - apparently this book was mutilated by the censors. The one English-language edition is out of print, and the publisher is apparently long defunct.

Time for a new edition!

English title: War's Unwomanly Face.

This is really a book everyone should read. If not all of it (considering it is pretty long), then at least parts of it. Not only is it the Second World War from a Soviet point of view, it's from Soviet women's point of view. How many people even know that 800.000 Soviet women went to war in WW2? Of course they deserve a book, and it's one of the most interesting and definitely one of the saddest I've read in a long while.

This is a fascinating and worthy read for two specific but interconnected reasons.

Primarily, it is the representation of women's stories, harrowing personal accounts from all types of women in varied military and civilian roles, individual experiences of killing and dying and hope and despair. It is gut wrenching and sickening; in one story a woman who had recently given birth was hiding in a swamp with others when the enemies closed in. The need to remain silent, to keep hidden, had her lower t
