Spurred by a premonition of history about to made, and armed with six hundred pounds of photographic equipment, Margaret Bourke-White, one of America's leading photographers, arrived in Moscow in may, 1941. When the Germans attacked, two months later, the Soviet government issued a proclamation that anyone found with a camera would be shot on sight. After a two-weeks siege of officialdom, Miss Bourke-White was awarded a photographer's "passport" - the only one given to a non-Russian, and from then on the shutters of her five cameras clicked unceasingly. This book, illustrated with almost a hundred of her best shots, records the ordeal of the Russian people as seen through the eyes and expert camera lens of one of America's finest photographers. 025795
