No Longer on the Run
The Story of a young Ukrainian who Spied for the Soviet Secret Service
For most of his life Ukrainian-born Andy Klischenko carried a secret about spying for the Soviet Secret Service during the Second World War. Eventually he spent time in a German labour camp, and later made his way to security in Canada. Although safe in this country, he did not reveal his story until recently for fear of recriminations against his family in Ukraine. However, he was surprised to receive medals from both Ukraine and Canada for his wartime contribution to the Allied cause. Written by Lorraine Fell of Baptiste Lake, this book will be launched on August 16, 2014. $15 plus shipping and handling: Canada $5, U.S. $7. Order HERE More information HERE

From Farm Field to a French GraveOn July 28, 1914, 100 years ago, my 16-year-old uncle Oscar French, like thousands of other Ontario teenagers, was quietly doing his chores on the family farm near Waverley. At 6 p.m. on July 28, 1914 Austria declared war on Serbia and began bombing the capital Belgrade the next day. Oscar probably knew almost nothing of Serbia and Austria but he would be drawn to the battlefields of Europe and a grim death at Vimy Ridge on April 9, 1917. Uncle Oscar wrote a series of letters to his mother, which are chronicled in the forthcoming book Letters to Vimy. To read more, CLICK HERE.
