Henryk Piecuch was born December 4th, 1939, in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. After obtaining his military education, for 35 years he served as an officer in the Wojska Ochrony Pogranicza (WOP)(Border Guard) in Poland. Towards the end of the 1960s his military career took a different turn and he started writing articles for the WOP weekly, Granica. Though he started as a field reporter, shortly after 1978 he was promoted to assistant executive editor and later executive editor. Piecuch achieved the rank of colonel and continued in his military duties until 1994, when he retired from both his military and journalist careers. He is a prominent author of 66 books, various articles, stories, and poems. Piecuch's work is primarily focused on Polish Communist intelligence, counterintelligence, and internal security.
