Book 3 in the Eastern Front trilogy
By Scott Bury
iAi member Scott Bury's newest book, Walking Out of War, launches today on Amazon in both print and e-book format.
"This is the first time I've launched both formats on the same day," Scott says. "It's received a lot of support online."
This book is the third in the Eastern Front trilogy that began with Army of Worn Soles (2014) and continued with Under the Nazi Heel (2015). It's a true Independent Authors International project: the cover designer, editor and proofreader are all members of iAi.
"I am really grateful for the outstanding work done by David, Gary and Joy," says Scott. "Their professionalism and quality were instrumental in making this book as good as it is."
As part of the launch of the final volume in the trilogy, author Scott Bury has made the first book in the series, Army of Worn Soles, free until February 25. The second book, Under the Nazi Heel, is just 99 cents (USD) for the same period.
What it's about
Ukraine, 1944: After the Soviets burned the Ukrainian city of Ternopyl to the ground to crush the stubborn Nazi occupiers, they rounded up every remaining Ukrainian man around for the Red Army’s final push on Germany. Maurice Bury, Canadian citizen, Ukrainian resistance fighter and intelligence officer, is thrust once again into the death struggle between Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s USSR.
Fighting across the Baltics in the autumn of 1944 is tough and bloody. Then the Red Army enters Germany, where they’re no longer liberators—they’re the long-feared Communist horde, bent on destruction, rape and revenge. The Communists are determined to wipe Nazism from the face of the earth. And the soldiers want revenge for Germany's brutal invasion and occupation.
Maurice has determined his only way out of this hell is to survive until Nazi Germany dies, and then move home to Canada. But to do that, he’ll have to not only walk out of war, but elude Stalin’s dreaded secret police.
