9780993190919: World War II Survival: The epic story of Leonid Aleksandrov’s journey from Russia to Normandy and Berlin

Prepare to be amazed at one man’s life story Escaping the Bolsheviks by boat at night as a baby, Russian Jew Leon Aleksandrov, spends his early years with his family seeking a safe haven in an increasingly anti-semitic Europe in the 1920s finally settling for safety in liberal Berlin. With the rise of Nazism Leon flees to France, is imprisoned, escapes to England and joins the army in time for D-Day. He fights his way through Europe into the very bowels of Nazi Germany and Hitler’s Reich Chancellery. His war is far from over as his language skills see him translate for Stalin and Churchill at the Potsdam conference and remaining in Berlin to help re-build Germany. A true story of determination and extraordinary events, his tale reads like Forrest Gump meets Saving Private Ryan. Prepare to be amazed at one man’s life story.
