A committed young Communist who joined the Red Army on the day Hitler's Blitzkrieg tore across the Soviet Union's borders in June 1941, Sigismund unquestioningly offered his life to the service of his motherland. Captured and thrown into a German prisoner of war camp, fate offered him escape from certain death through service to the "new order;" chance made him a Red partisan spy. Ordered to infiltrate a German-run anti-partisan unit, his conversion began and soon he was a committed anti-Bolshevik, joining the Russian Army of Liberation that was devoted to toppling Stalin. It was all too little too late and when in the spring of 1945 Sigismund fell into the hands of Soviet spy-hunters, death seemed a certainty . . . until fate once again played a part in giving him a new lease of life in a far away land. Traitor or patriot? For Sigismund Diczbalis the 60 years since the World War II ended have done little to erase a question that has troubled him lifelong.About the Author:
Sigismund Diczbalis was born in Saratov, central Russia in January 1922 and later moved to Leningrad before joining the Red Army in June 1941. Having then spied for the anti-Bolshevists after being captured, he was recaptured by Soviet forces; escaping the clutches of SMERSH - the Russian 'death to spies' organization - he made his way to American-occupied Germany where he married and embarked on a new life in Australia.Nick Holdsworth is a British-born Moscow-based journalist and writer. A specialist in Russian and Eastern European affairs, Nick met Sigismund while researching the story of General Andrei Vlasov and the Russian Army of Liberation.
