The Second World War was complex in the Baltic states as Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia found themselves caught between the Soviet and Nazi war machines. Annexed by the rise of Communism, by 1941, large swaths of Latvian men enlisted in the Wehrmacht, mistakenly believing the Germans would liberate them from their Soviet invaders. Among the volunteers were Maris and Andrejs Vejonis… two brothers like fire and water, who would be irrevocably caught up in the tide of the war in Europe.
