More > having a connection to the realms beyond the terrestrial sphere of our own, and he traversed the heavenly regions and nether regions, and recorded them.

От Севастополя до Берлина через Донскую излучину By ЛЕОН ТИПОГРАФ
Paperback: $4.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
If Leon Tipograf's story were a movie script, it would be deemed too preposterous for the screen. When the Germans invaded Crimea on June 22, 1942, Tipograf was a student at the Highest Military... More > Naval College. Entering the war as a naval officer, he was severely wounded. Gravely ill from the gunshot, and left behind by the retreating Soviet troops, he was found by Germans and taken prisoner. As a Soviet officer and a Jew behind the Nazi lines, he was in danger of being shot immediately… He escaped the camp, and survived only due to his cunning, resilience, courage and exceptional intelligence. He managed to travel across the countryside and join the Soviet army, concluding the war in Berlin. This remarkable saga would have made him a celebrity, but it was not heard by his contemporaries or his descendants. Only now, almost by a miracle, 70 years later has it come to light. L.M.Tipograf shares his memories of that momentous and monstrous period in history with gripping detail and stark clarity.< Less
