Pirin Planina


The famous Romanian writer, George Topîrceanu became a war memoirist when describing his own experiences while fighting in World War I. Despite the dark surrounding and vivid recounts of death and tragedy he witnessed, the soldier Topîrceanu managed to find humor in the most unusual circumstances and will leave the reader baffled. While fighting in the battle at Turtucaia on the Romanian side in 1916, he gets captured by the Bulgarian army and, after quite an adventure, taken to the work camp at the base of the Pirin Mountains. He then starts a fight for survival in one of the harshest environments. However, the satirical side he's known for in Romanian literature cannot be overshadowed not even by the challenges he's faced within the camp. This unique blend of drama, tragedy, and humor will immerse the reader into the unique world of a soldier fighting in World War I.
