Mud and Snow: Into Russia and Back is an artfully woven novel by Marc Hetzel. Hetzel's gripping novel is based on true life events and follows the life of a World War II veteran. Walter Hetzel, a butcher's son is thrust into war when he's a young man. Walter leaves his boyhood home in Chemnitz and trains for active duty in Krakow, Poland. Walter's tour of duty takes him to the Russian front where he's captured near Vitebsk and then sent to Moscow. While there, Walter makes friends with the other prisoners but learns the devastation of war up close and personal. Walter spends several years as a POW; and after returning home finds his home forever changed-as he is. Hetzel writes with incredible clarity, expertly capturing the mood, setting, and inner-workings of a young man losing his innocence while being exposed to horrific events and situations. Based on true-life events, his novel will haunt your conscience long after you've turned the last page. Marc Hetzel is a writer and works in the poker industry. Mr. Hetzel is currently writing his second novel and lives near Black Hawk, Colorado.
