Born Under a Lucky Star
- A Red Army Soldier's Recollections of the Eastern Front of World War II
- By: Ivan Philippovich Makarov, Anastasia Walker - foreword and translator
- Narrated by: Daniel Henning
- Length: 8 hrs and 9 mins
As a Russian recruit in World War II, Ivan Makarov witnessed General Chuikov pull out his pistol and shoot their regimental commander as a traitor. That was on his first day at the front. Thrown into an open field to face German tanks and artillery fire, with only rifles and machine guns to defend themselves with, almost 2,000 men of his regiment were wiped out in only six days at the Eastern Front. At this rate, Ivan struggled to comprehend how he would survive the hundreds of battles that lay before him, with death seeming to be the only certainty.
Awesome perspective and story.
