Powerful read. History has done Lithuania a disservice by ignoring her plight against the Soviets after World War II.

A rare account of the little known history of the anti-Soviet movement in Lithuania. Juozas Luksa's wry humour and narrative not only make this a fascinating history book, but also a captivating read.

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.
