Young Bogdan, a medical student at Graz University, finds himself conscripted into the Austro-Hungarian Army at the outbreak of WWI. Will he escape to neutral Switzerland to avoid having to fight against his own people? This is just one of the tough decisions he will have to make during the four years of war. In this memoir, the author invites her father to talk about his experiences as a young Serb patriot eager to put his life on the line for his people. His love of adventure takes him to Russia, where he witnesses the Revolution of 1917. The book is illustrated with photos of both personal and historic value.
