Alexievich interviewed hundreds out of the million Russian women who participated in the second world war in a variety of roles, including as foot soldiers, snipers, doctors and nurses. From the book's blurb: All that we know about Woman is best described by the word .compassion. There are other words, too: sister, wife, friend and, the noblest of all, mother. But isn't compassion a part of all these concepts, their very substance, their purpose and their ultimate meaning? A woman is the giver of life, she safeguards life, so " woman " and " life " are synonyms.
