Counter Here is the true, poetic, and passionately told story of the civilians caught between the Soviet and German armies in World War II. Though many histories convey the experiences of the soldiers who fought on the Russian Front, this focuses on the ordinary people, harried by bandits and local warlords routinely robbed of food and fuel by the invaders living under the constant threat of deportation to Germany and fearing their own troops as much as the enemy.
