He served in the Red Army during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and he was arrested in 1945 for criticizing [[JosefStalin Stalin]] in personal letters. He was sentenced to eight years in TheGulag. In the more liberal climate of Khrushchev's rule, he was allowed to publish a novel inspired by his experiences, ''Literature/OneDayInTheLifeOfIvanDenisovich''. The book was the first major account in the USSR of Stalinist repression, and caused a sensation both at home and in the West.

After Khrushchev was deposed in 1964, culture in the Soviet Union became more repressive. Solzhenitsyn continued to work secretly on his comprehensive account on the gulags, ''Literature/TheGulagArchipelago''. He would memorise a lot of his works in case the drafts were seized by the KGB. The seizure of ''The Gulag Archipelago'' (and suicide of the person who had it in her possession as a result of her arrest) forced him into early publication in the West. After this, he was exiled from the Soviet Union in 1974. He won the NobelPrizeInLiterature in 1970, although he didn't collect it until 1974.
