The Quiet Hero: Bridge To Freedom is a gripping and emotional tale based on the memoirs of John A. Drost, which have been fictionalized by Nicki Pascarella.


This book spans the life of Jan, who led an idyllic childhood in Czechoslovakia but was thrust into the role of a hero during one of the darkest periods in human history. The overarching theme of the book is the resilience of the human spirit and the power of hope, as we follow Jan's journey through insurrection, fear, and ultimately, freedom.

Through Pascarella's meticulous research and vivid storytelling, we are transported back to a time when the world was torn apart by war and hate, and we witness firsthand the courage and determination of those who fought against tyranny and oppression.


The Quiet Hero is a powerful tribute to the human spirit and a reminder of the importance of preserving the memory of those who fought against the atrocities of the Nazi regime. It is also a must-read for anyone interested in history, memoirs, or stories of strength and perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity.
