I liked how the story began with a scene that takes place later in the book that engages the reader with what will happen to the narrator. Then the next chapter the reader gets to see the narrator, a college student, struggling with his studies while supporting himself before he’s drafted into war. I eagerly read these earlier chapters so I could see how the events that are mentioned in the first chapter are unfolded.
Although a fictional account of the author’s father-in-law actual experiences, the story reads as a thriller. But knowing the experiences the narrator is shoved into are based on fact makes the reading all the more compelling.
I would have liked to have had a bit more emotional connection with the narrator but that desire didn’t prevent me from devouring this book.
I look forward to the continuation of this story in the book presently being written.
I knew as soon as I heard the story behind the book, that I had to read it. For a history fan, the first sentence of the blurb hooked me.
“A Canadian is drafted into the Soviet Red Army in 1941, just in time to be thrown against Nazi Germany’s invasion in Operation Barbarossa.”
How the heck did a Canadian end up drafted into the Soviet Red Army? The novel is a based on facts Bury gathered from conversations with his father-in-law over a number of years. A popular author I read calls books like this one, “Faction.” It is a fascinating look into the
life of this unwilling soldier in the Red Army. It does have strong language, but appropriate in a war setting. I hope there will be a sequel, i would like to know how the soldier ended up in Canada.
