5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, just hope it's true :), 3 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Shallow Graves in Siberia (Paperback)
//This true story details the journey of Michael Krupa. Captured by the Soviets and accused of being a German spy he is tortured and sentenced to a term in the notorious Russian Gulags. Whilst there he acquires a prestigious and trusted job as a Telephone repair man, a job that allows him weeks of travel unescorted, he soon begins to think of escape.

We follow his trek fromSiberia to safety in Afghanistan.

In the novel there are some graphic details of torture (including a woman interogator who removes tesicles with a poker), and many touching moments (such as the help given by strangers, in particular a couple who's son has also gone missing into the Gulags).

I really enjoyed this book, the only reason I gave it 4 stars was that a number of reviews have questioned the integrity of the authors story. I don't know if it is all true, but I would certainly like to think so.

22/9/13 - I have received a comment on here from the Authors daughter, and this made me want to reread the book again. Having done so, I have now altered the rating to 5 stars. And would urge everyone to try the book and be amazed at the adventures. :)
