    Interesting story but kind of flatly told in part because everyone involved is long dead.

    This account of the Nazi occupation of Kiev is utterly harrowing weaving the fascinating stories of some of the key players that played for FC Start I found my self close to tears with elation when reading the inspiring account of FC Start s football games but also sickened when reading through how the Nazi s disposed of Kievian citizens A balanced account and definitely worth a read for those that want a detailed account of how the Nazi s treated the Ukranians but also how inspirational sport This account of the Nazi occupation of Kiev is utterly harrowing weaving the fascinating stories of some of the key players that played for FC Start I found my self close to tears with elation when reading the inspiring account of FC Start s football games but also sickened when reading through how the Nazi s disposed of Kievian citizens A balanced account and definitely worth a read for those that want a detailed account of how the Nazi s treated the Ukranians but also how inspirational sport can be in uniting a nation that was so impoverished

    A not too long book about the footballers of Dynamo Kiev who played in the so called death match during the occupation of Kiev by the Germans in the second world war Actually the football takes up quite a small part of the story which concentrates on the city of Kiev and the atrocities that went on.

  8. Gregleddin says:

    This is a great story that is sadly written up in a bad book.

  9. Joan says:

    A decent read Claims in the book are disputed elsewhere but interesting.

  10. Lars Børresen says:

    Very poor The author does not seem to know much about WWII or football Also, the players lives and experiences are dealt with rather shoddily and superficially Disappointing.
