Rebecca Manley specializes in the history of the Soviet Union. Her latest work addresses the Soviet experience of the Second World War. /To the Tashkent Station: Evacuation and Survival in the Soviet Union at War/ reconstructs the displacement of over sixteen million Soviet civilians in the wake of the German invasion. Based on previously unexploited archival collections in Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, the book offers a novel look at a war that transformed the lives of several generations of Soviet citizens.
