About The Book
In its essence, this collection of documents represents and “extract” summary of the major events of the understudied and, in fact, practically unknown war between the Soviet forces and anti-Soviet insurgents, that took place on the Ukrainian territory after the retreat of the Nazis. These documents also contain the extensive statistical data that reveals the staggering proportions and scope of this war. They illuminate both the major operations and tactics used by the insurgents in their military, terrorist, and sabotage activities as well as the scope and methods of the Soviet campaign of terror against the fighters of the UPA and the Ukrainian civilian population. As such, the book represents an invaluable resource of factual information for historians and readers interested in World War II and the Ukrainian national-liberation movement.
The documents in the book are published in their original Russian-language versions. The introduction and commentaries are in Ukrainian.
