Translated into English from the original Lithuanian, this is a first person account of life in Lithuania under Stalin. The Forest Brothers were the partisans who fought to regain Lithuania's independence. Juozas Luksa was one of the leaders of this underground group. The author compiled his recollections after he escaped to the West. It is a riveting read, especially for those whose family members lived in Lithuania during this terrible time.
