From the Publisher:

Son of the famous American journalist Louis Fischer, who corresponded from Germany and then Moscow, and the Russian writer Markoosha Fischer, Victor Fischer grew up in the shadow of Hitler and Stalin, watching his friends' parents disappear after political arrests. Eleanor Roosevelt personally engineered the Fischer family's escape from Russia, and soon after Victor was serving in the United States Army in World War II and fighting against his childhood friends in the Russian and German armies.
 
As a young adult, he went on to help shape Alaska's map by planning towns throughout the state. This unique autobiography recounts Fischer's earliest days in Germany, Russia, and Alaska, where he soon entered civic affairs and was elected as a delegate to the Alaska Constitutional Convention?the body responsible for establishing statehood in the territory. A move to Washington, DC, and further government appointments allowed him to witness key historic events of his era, which he also recounts here. Finally Fischer brings his memoir up to the present, describing how he has returned to Russia many times to bring the lessons of Alaska freedom and prosperity to the newly democratic states.
