The Russian writer Isaac Babel (1894-1940) is widely acknowledged to be one of the great masters of twentieth-century literature, hailed as a genius by such critics as Lionel Trilling and Irving Howe. The work for which he is best known is a cycle of stories called Red Cavalry, which depicts the exploits of the Cossack cavalry during the Polish-Soviet war of 1919-1920 and is based on Babel's experiences as he rode with the Cossacks during the campaign. Throughout this period Babel kept a diary, in which he recorded the devastation of the war, the extreme cruelty of the Polish and Red armies alike toward the Jewish population in Ukraine and eastern Poland, and his own conflicted role as both Soviet revolutionary and Jew. The 1920 Diary, a vital source for Red Cavalry as well as a compelling narrative, is now published in English for the first time. The 1920 Diary is the most significant contemporary account of the tragedy of Eastern European Jewry during this period. The Diary also yields important insights into Babel's personal evolution, showing his youthful curiosity and his anguish as, frequently concealing his own Jewish identity, he mingled with the victimized Jews of the region's shtetls and with his Cossack comrades. Finally, the Diary sheds light on Babel's artistic development, revealing the path from observations recorded in excitement and despair to the painstakingly crafted narratives of the Red Cavalry cycle.

Review: 1920 Diaryユーザー レビュー - Goodreads
Before he was a famous author, Babel was a writer attached to the Soviet army in the 1920 war against Poland. Mostly in the form of notes, which surely helped him recall events for use in future writing, the diary is most notable for its documentation of cruelty by the Soviets.
Review: 1920 Diaryユーザー レビュー - Goodreads
1.5 stars These fragmented journal entries of a journalist in the Russian(?) war were difficult for me to follow or take anything from. Whatever merit lay buried beneath the rambling, incoherent thoughts was not with the work to extract it.
