From the Publisher:
From behind the Iron Curtain onto hockey's biggest stage

The incredible true story of the trailblazing men who risked everything to pass through the Iron Curtain and become NHL superstars, Breakaway is a thrilling look at the untold stories that changed hockey forever. From midnight meetings in secluded forests, to evading capture by military and police forces, this is the story of the brave players whose passion of the game trumped all.

Featuring exclusive interviews with the legends of the ice who put everything on the line just for the chance to play on the world's greatest stage, many of them speaking about their experiences for the very first time, the book looks at how Peter Stastny, Igor Larionov, Petr Klima, Petr Nedved, Sergei Fedorov, Slava Fetisov, Alexander Mogilny, and other hockey superstars captured the imaginations of fans around the world.

  • The remarkable true story of some of the true pioneers of hockey, told for the very first time, often in the players' own words
  • A fascinating look behind the Iron Curtain and the trials these brave men endured for a taste of freedom, through their love of the game
  • Looks at how some of the NHL's greatest players made it onto North American ice

As much a tale of espionage and social history as a gripping hockey chronicle, Breakaway sheds light on the untold stories of some of the sports' most inspiring heroes.
