Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century. He lived through the worst of the totalitarianism that Soviet Russia devised, and he at much risk, chronicled the stories of others who suffered and died at the hands of this tyrannical system. In the midst of the evil that he saw, Solzhenitsyn became a devout Christian. In addition to a chronicle of Soviet cruelty, the author wrestles with the nature of man and the nature of good and evil. Read and remember.
