Editorial Reviews

In his autobiography, The Struggle and the Triumph: An Autobiography, Lech Walesa, founder of Poland's Solidarity movement in the 1980s and, later, that country's first democratically elected leader, recounts the path that led him from a position of symbolic power and hope to a new life as head of state in the formerly totalitarian nation.
Gildart Jackson's performance of this dense historical work is extremely well balanced, and he maintains a calm and objective tone even as we follow Walesa through some of his darkest moments as he is forced into hiding during the mid-1980s. This audiobook provides a strong historical background on modern Polish history, as well as a compelling personal narrative.
