This is Michael Krupa’s story of how in 1939 he escaped the German invasion of Poland only to be captured by the Red Army, accused of espionage, and interrogated in the notorious Lubianka prison. He was then sent to the infamous Pechora Gulag, where most inmates died of overwork and starvation within a year. Amazingly, Kupra then escaped and made the gruelling journey from Siberia to Afghanistan.
This is a remarkable true story of survival and also gives a chilling insight into the brutality of Stalinist Russia. It reads like a thriller and is in the mould of Defiance, and Touching the Void in tales of human survival and endeavour against the odds.

Harrowing Story of Survival
Amazing Story of Courage against all Odds
I would listen to it a couple of years from now. This book reads as if it is a movie.
Suspenseful, Fast Moving, and Gripping!
Michael Krupa is a man of faith. The overall story tells of many tragic near-death situations that are true to life and really happened. Although he never refers to this, as the listener, I began to believe that Michael received help from above. There were too many circumstances with an innocent bystander coming along side Michael getting him through really tough scrapes to believe they were accidental.
I liked Michael's prayerful approach to God, Our Savior, and believe that his conditions moved his heart - Bigtime. There is no more honest prayer than from a person who is in dire and desparate circumstances……
God brought him to freedom….
Crossing the border
How much do we appreciate our freedom?
It is unbelievable how cruel and evil some people can be…….This book is a battle between
Good and Evil -
Proof that God is here if we call on him
Proof that the devil is also here and will harm us if he can.
