Dni i nochi [Days and nights]
Moskva: Sovetskij pisatel. 218 pages. "[Simonov's] most widely read novel is Days and Nights (1944), which deals with the courage of Soviet forces during the siege of Stalingrad. Simonov does not limit himself to the depiction of heroic acts alone but also portrays the deep emotions of men under stress. His prose exhibits an economy of style and a sense of dramatic action unusual in war novels of the cold-war era, which generally glorified the Soviet government and were expected to function as propaganda for the Soviet system."--Encyclopedia of World Biography, 2010.
