Prisoner in the Forbidden Land by Gustav Krist
Gustav Krist awoke in a muddy crater, shot through the leg, and being dragged by a Russian soldier. The year was 1914 and Krist had found himself one of over two million Austrians captured by Russians in the First World War. That fateful day for the young soldier would begin a series of experiences that few would live to retell.
Transported to the mysterious lands of Central Asia, Krist weaves a narrative of extreme hardship and his struggle to survive in the horrendous prison camps where so many of his comrades would perish. Facing near death at every turn Krist tells his riveting true story of escapes, recaptures, and his quest to return home by any means. But while the Russian Revolution would bring an end to the war, the chaos of the communist takeover of Central Asia would only make matters more dangerous.
