The chief protagonist, Maurice finds himself between the devil and deep blue seas the war rages between the retreating Germans and the resurgent red army. It is a well narrated story of the atrocities of both the warring factions and how the Ukrainians suffer at their hands

good story about the confusion of aqui ukraine.

I pressurised to stumble accidentallY across this trilogy on war time ukraine. Very week dones. Depicts the tragedy of Ukraine's no win dilemma during that period of history. Unfortunately Ukrainians still face a similar dilemma with no one really interested in helping them

A short story

A decent story involving a part of the history of World War Two that did not receive any coverage in the USA

I'm glad to be one of the lucky ARC readers of Under the Nazi Heel: Walking Out of War, Book II by Scott Bury.
The journey of Maurice Bury continues in this compelling memoir. You actually feel yourself standing in the war zone, the earth turning liquid beneath you, you can hear the sounds of bombs and machine guns. That's how you close you get when you're reading Scott's writing. I'd say its an exceptional memoir. If I put myself in Maurice's shoes, I don't think I'd ever be able to lead a healt

While Scott Bury is one of my favorite authors, I will say that this book fell short for me as a must read book. That being said, let me further explain. I am not a fan of war, war memoirs, or that type of historical fiction. I did find the elements I love about Mr Bury, his development of character, and time and place. Under the Nazi Heel certainly put me in war torn Europe during World War II. I would give this book a 4 star rating for story and development, although for me as to the content a ...more

This is not my typical reading genre but I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. It is a small piece of history from World War II as told by Maurice Bury who lived it. I am not a history buff but I found the action of the story to sound very accurate and highly recommend this to any reader who enjoys stories of World War II. I look forward to the next novel in the series. Yes, this is a series and this is book two. I now must go back and read book one. Each story is complete unto itself but woven to lin ...more

Scott Bury can't stay in one category.
