Just finished this, and it's the perfect mix of music and war history for me. The intertwining of the Leningrad siege with the composition of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 (Leningrad) is beautifully done. I also especially appreciate the mentions that Moynahan makes to the role of the Soviet government & NKVD during the purges & into the siege itself, and how close Shostakovich came to not being able to create the seventh at all.
