Enclosed is the epic report of our eraAn immense masterpiece of world literature, the record-breaking four decades of terror and oppression, distilled in an abstract volume (authorized by the author)Relying on his own experience before, during and after 11 years of imprisonment and exile, on the evidence provided by more than 200 co-detainees, and on the Soviet archives, Solzhenitsyn reveals with torrential narrative and dramatic power of the entire Soviet repressive apparatus, the state in the state that ruled all-powerful with its creation by Len.By really Shakespeare portraits of his victims-that man, this woman, this child that we meet the secret of police operations, labor camps and prisons, the grubbing-up or extermination of entire populations, the “welcome” that awaited Russian soldiers who had been German prisoners of war.Yet we also have the testimony of astonishing courage, incorruptibility with which the occasional individual or some scattered groups, all defenceless, have endured brutality and degradation.And Solzhenitsyn genius transmuted this macabre indictment into a literary miracle
