Overview

This book tells the story of Slovak underground member Maria Gulovich’s unlikely heroism, focusing on the former elementary schoolteacher’s courageous actions in saving American OSS agents. It describes how, while trapped with the agents behind enemy lines, she forayed into enemy occupied villages to find scarce food for the starving men, spied out enemy troop strength, and occasionally obtained shelter from blizzards with terrified but kind citizens. For her heroism, the U.S. government presented her with a Bronze Star. The work includes an extensive bibliography, a map of the area held by insurrectionists, and several photographs offering a glimpse of World War II seldom seen.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“what a story this is! It would be ‘interesting’ if it were fiction, but it is more—much more. It is ‘fascinating’ and true...skillfully written, historically accurate and well-researched...a riveting, detailed wartime biography...a near-cinematic experience...Jason has done an excellent job of bringing this often-marginalized story—and its major players—to life in an unforgettable way”—Bookpleasures.com.
