For Bernard Pawlowski the unfolding events on the 1st of September 1939 will change his life forever. For on this date, the Nazis invaded Poland - entire families would be erased and the country itself would disappear for decades. Losing contact with what remained of his family was just the first nightmare for the 14-year-old Bernard; capture and the brutality of the concentration camp system would soon follow. Michael Pawlowski's Cassino, Conquest of the Mountain follows Bernard's travails as he survives even the regime of the notorious Amon Goethe in the Płaszów concentration camp to join up with Polish forces in the Middle East. From there it is only a short time before he and his compatriots can take some revenge in the allied assault of the German stronghold of Monte Cassino. Part personal history part war document, Cassino, Conquest of the Mountain will be a sought after read especially for those concerned with the Polish experience of World War II.
Michael Pawlowski, after graduating from the University of Toronto, served the community in the insurance and legal professions. His memberships have included the Canadian Authors' Association, Brave New Works, Niagara Historical Society, Insurance Institute, Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Ontario, and the Law Society of Upper Canada. The obligation to tell ‘the rest of the story' has motivated his all of his literary endeavours. Michael is absolutely delighted with the publication of his novel: Cassino, Conquest of the Mountain.
