"Once Upon a Time There Was a War" is a kaleidoscope of events.

It starts with World War II seen through the eyes of a child.

The author was only nine years old when the war started and he writes about his memories of horrible events like hangings and executions of innocent people; senseless killings that brought misery to so many lives.

But, being only a child, he also had times of fun and play.

The reality of war, however, was ever-present.

Despite those dark times, Les remained an optimist; he had his dreams of becoming an animator and of going to Hollywood.

He didn’t know how, but he was sure that someday he would reach his goal.

Les reached his goal and had a long career working for studios in Poland, as well as Disney and Hanna-Barbera in the U.S., and others.

Those fascinating stories, and many more, are also in this memoir.
