"In his excellent memoir, "Exile from Latvia: My WWII Childhood from Survival to Opportunity", Harry Kapeikis has written a fascinating and uplifting story of his boyhood experiences in Latvia prior to World War II; occupation by both the Germans and then the Soviets; his family's escape westward in the middle of a war zone; their shelter in a farmer's barn in Germany; and subsequent years in a Displaced Person's camp near Augsburg before transport to America for a new life. His honest, first-hand, youthful memories of hiding during air raids, near starvation during flight, family conflict and caring; schooling and Boy scout activities during the D.P. years; and his youthful exploits, mistakes and triumphs make the reader feel as if a part of it all. I recommend this book to anyone interested in memoirs of the war years, coming-of-age stories and inspirational stories of enduring faith despite danger and uncertainty." (Gayle Goodreads)
