He Fought in Two Armies 

A fascinating story about an American paratrooper, separated from his unit on D-Day, who is captured by the Germans and sent to a POW camp. He eventually escapes, links up with a Soviet tank unit and fights with them for a month. Then, after being blown off a tank and wounded, he has an encounter with Marshal Zhukov! After making his way to the American Embassy in Moscow, he finds out he has been declared KIA and has to prove his identity. You can't make this stuff up. Truly truth is stranger than fiction.
