I was offered a free copy of “Walking Out Of War” in exchange for an honest review. It was a privilege to read the third installment in Scott Bury’s tribute to his father-in-law, Maurice Bury, in which he chronicles and commemorates Maurice’s experiences in the Soviet Red Army during World War II.

The final book in Bury’s trilogy opens with Maurice in his mother’s field in western Ukraine, smoking and savoring the sunshine, as he surveys their growing sugar beet crop in a rare peaceful moment. H

Walking Out of War is the third book in Scott Bury’s trilogy, an incredible true three-part story narrated in exquisite detail, about his father-in-law’s experiences in World War II. But this book isn’t like most you might have read about World War II. It is told from a completely different perspective. Maurice Bury is a Canadian citizen, Ukrainian resistance fighter and intelligence officer, who is forced to fight as part of the Red Army in its final push on Germany. As a soldier, he is intimat ...more

I received an advance review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a lovely story about characters who get caught in the deadly machinations of war, the end of World War II from the viewpoint of a Ukrainian soldier, told in a highly entertaining and suspenseful way. The battle scenes are ghastly and violent, but Maurice is totally three-dimensional, a fine portrait, and unsentimental. The scene change in the second half of the book makes for very interesting and equally ent ...more

War is Hell
This is book three in the series inspired by the experiences of the author’s father-in-law, Maurice Bury, during World War II. Before I forget to say it, I did not read the first two books in the series and had absolutely no problems just jumping into book three. The author has mentioned on occasions activities that took place in Maurice’s earlier war years so Scott has done a nice job of explaining things from the past. War is hell and Maurice experienced many situations which most o

Very enlightening

I read all three books with great interest. They provided a view of World War Two that is not covered with any discernable amount.

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

Scott Bury can't stay in one category.

After a 20-year career in journalism, he turned to writing fiction. "Sam, the Strawb Part," a children's story, came out in 2011, with all the proceeds going to an autism charity. Next was a paranormal short story for grown-ups, "Dark Clouds."

The Bones of the Earth, a historical fantasy, came out in 2012. It was followed in 2013 with One Shade of Red, an eroti
