August 1914 (Russian: Август четырнадцатого) is a Russian novel by Nobel Prize-winning writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn about the defeat of the Imperial Russian Army at the Battle of Tannenberg in East Prussia. The novel was completed in 1970, first published in 1971, with an English translation the following year. The novel is an unusual blend of fiction narrative and historiography, and has given rise to extensive and often bitter controversy, both from the literary as well as from the historical point of view. Some episodes of the book had caused in accusations of the author in anti-Semitism, mostly rebutted at the time, but these were renewed later, regarding Two Hundred Years Together.
