it was amazing

Brilliantly moving account of the struggle of the Bielski Otriad. Ray Mears also did a programme a few years ago on how the survival techniques the Otriad used to survive in the harsh forests of Belarus. Also contains some harrowing accounts of some Nazi atrocities. Very worthwhile read, although don't expect to come out with a smile on your face at the end of it. Read this before watching the 2008 Edward Zwick film with Daniel Craig.
