This one's a Christmas gift I read before giving it to my Uncle Nat. Its the story of the Ukrainian footballers (soccer players) from the Kyiv Dynamo team that played a German military team during the Nazi occupation of Kyiv, and then were thrown in a concentration camp for beating the Germans.

The book gives a lot of background information on WWII in Ukraine (or "the Great Patriotic War" as the Soviets called it) and was a quick read--I think that the author is usually a sports writer for a Glasgow, Scotland newspaper.

Overall, I enjoyed it, and thought it would make a great gift for my sports-loving, history/politics nut uncle. ( )
