A Canadian in the Soviet Red Army

In 1941, Canadian-born Maurice Bury was drafted into the Soviet Red Army—just in time to be thrown into the fight against Operation Barbarossa, Nazi Germany's assault on the USSR and the greatest land invasion in history.

Under-equipped, short on ammunition, the Soviets retreat across Ukraine until their boots wear out. When the invaders Maurice, the men  under his command along with 5 million other Soviet soldiers. Then it's a struggle against starvation and overwork at the hands of the Nazis in the prison camp.

After escaping the prison camp, taking the men under his command with him, Maurice entered the underground resistance against the Nazi oppressors. When they retreated, he joined the Red Army again, fighting to the final days in Berlin. But Maurice was not out of danger, yet. The final struggle was to return home, to Montreal. To do that, he had to escape Stalin's brutal NKVD. 

This is the true story of a Canadian who finds himself in the bloodiest conflict of the 20th century, on the Eastern Front of the Second World War.

Editorial Reviews

“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 highly recommend the book, which provides an insight into what our forefathers endured in the battle for freedom.”“You can hear the explosions from anti-tank shells, feel some of the hopelessness of a POW camp. Not just for a history buff; I'm surely not, but a well-told war story.”“I knew as soon as I heard the story behind the book, that I had to read it. How the heck did a Canadian end up drafted into the Soviet Red Army? It is a fascinating look into the life of this unwilling soldier in the Red Army.” “A well-written and powerful read, and a difficult one. The violence and war crimes are startling, and Bury, being a master at his craft, effectively paints mental pictures.”
