We were introduced by Valentina Chudaeva, a frontline veteran of the Great
Patriotic War. She told me that this writer had written the book The Unwomanly
Face of War, which people were reading right round the world. Then, at one of
the meetings with frontline veterans, I talked to other women, and they told me
that Alexievich had used their lives to earn a fortune and become famous, and
now she'd taken on the 'Afghanis'. I'm nervous ... I beg your pardon ... She came
to us in the ...

The 2015 Nobel Prize laureate in literature, Svetlana Alexievich, entitled her
book War's Unwomanly Face. She characterizes it as the testimony of women

soldiers in 1941. They had to kill the enemy who had attacked their homes and
homeland with unprecedented cruelty. Reading Alexievich's book I thought that,
perhaps, its title was not quite accurate. Through the ugly faces of war I saw the
human faces ...

Equally controversial are Alexiyevich's books on women and war. War's
Unwomanly Face (1985), which gives voice to women who fought in World War II,
contradicts the official mythologies of the glorious Soviet army. Another collection
of wartime oral histories, Boys in Zinc (1989), chronicles the impact on ordinary
people of the Soviet war in Afghanistan — often called "Russia's Vietnam." The
book was met by a lawsuit brought by military authorities, who demanded
compensation for ...
