Paperback, 153 pages, $22.95
Born and raised in Zwola, in rural Poland, Zygmunt Tratkiewicz was an
ordinary young man, conscripted at age 23 to the national military
When World War II broke out, Zygmunt was faced with trials and
adversities that he could not previously have imagined. Fortunately for
him, as he fought for his country and spent time as a prisoner of war
in Germany, “Lady Luck”was more often than not on his side.
From Poland to Daylesford, “This Soldier’s Fortune” tells the story of
one soldier’s triumph, of a battle well fought and a life well lived.
Zygmunt Tratkiewicz, born in 1915, now lives in the beautiful town of
Daylesford, Victoria, with Gladys, his wife of 62 years. At 94 years
old, the proud father, grandfather and great-grandfather is still a
keen handyman and avid bowler.
