What is the most compelling part of this novel?

Shima To me, the compelling part was knowing that it was based on real events and real people. Keeping that in mind made everything seem fascinating (I was particularly interested in the coincidence of Lale ending up under Yakob's hand and how that scenario played out as well as his brief time with the Russians in the end)
However, I didn't find the way the book was written particularly compelling as there never seemed to be a sense of rising tension, nor emotional involvement in the characters.
