Product Overview

As a young boy in Ukraine, Roman Mac witnessed the upheaval of life in his native Molodych by Nazi and Communist adversaries determined to control it. By the age of twelve he joined the Ukrainian underground, serving as a scout, special courier, and often as a terrain operational leader during armed conflict. Even at that tender age he understood the stakes: to win the freedom of Ukraine or die trying. Four years later, after the forced resettlement of his villagers to Poland's Recovered Territories and still wanted by the Communists for his underground activities, Mac and several comrades walked through Poland and Czechoslovakia to West Germany's American Zone, where they laid down their arms. He immigrated to the United States in 1950, where he served in the US Army, graduated from college, and established a business manufacturing accessories for musical instruments. Mac lives with his wife in Bethlehem, PA.
