These Russian and Czech players, so commonplace in the NHL today and among the league's elite stars, would have been completely missing from NHL rosters in the s and early '80s, totally off limits and behind the Iron Curtain. Of course the world has changed politically since those days and players are free to leave their native country to play in North America, but long before the Cold War ended there were a few breakaway artists, daring pioneers who risked arrest and imprisonment, never seeing their families again, and even put the relatives they left behind at risk-all just to play hockey on the world's greatest stage and to taste the freedom and riches of North America that they could only glimpse when they came out briefly from behind the Iron Curtain to play in international tournaments.
This is the mostly untold story of that small group of early defectors, the men who changed the game of hockey and even helped to shape the political landscape of their time. As much a tale of espionage and social history as a gripping hockey chronicle, Breakaway will shed light on one of sports' great untold stories. Additional Product Features Dewey Edition.
