“Dear N.N., my book has a special path, probably depending solely on my mediocrity in life. Therefore, it is difficult for me to talk about the book and even a little painful. But it needs to be spoken." It is not known to whom Sofia Fedorchenko wrote these lines. The letter is interrupted in mid-sentence. And the book with the simple title "The People at War", about which "it hurts to talk", became her Golgotha. This book was the greatest happiness of her life and destroyed her whole life. Fedorchenko went to the front as an unknown nurse, and returned as the author of a sensational, unparalleled, cruel chronicle of the war.
