Product description

The author of this book Curzio Malaparte was a disaffected supporter of Mussolini with a taste for danger and high living. Sent by an Italian paper during World War II to cover the battle on the Eastern Front, Malaparte secretly wrote this terrifying report from the abyss, which became an international bestseller when it was published after the war. Telling of the siege of Leningrad, of glittering dinner parties with Nazi leaders, and of trains disgorging bodies in war-devastated Romania, Malaparte paints a picture of humanity at its most depraved. 'Kaputt' is an insider's dispatch from the world of the enemy that is as hypnotically fascinating as it is disturbing. The book was translated into English by Cesare Foligno.

Published 1948.

Hardback. The boards are slightly discoloured and there is writing on the front free end paper. The page edges are also browning.
