Starting February 24th, 2022 millions of people in Ukraine has resisted the invasion of their country by russia. Some streamed towards new front lines that stretched hundreds of kilometers on sea, land and air and some have chosen to dedicate their skills whatever they might be to help the country fight.

This is a book about personal sacrifice of people who chose to resist this brutal and barbaric invasion, happening in Europe in the 21st century as the whole World watches on. This is a book about sainthood in a godless time.
