Alexander Zass - Feats of Strength


Alexander Zass is arguably one of the toughest men on record.  He'd been known to carry a horse on his shoulders and catch cannonballs and other performers shot from a special canon he designed himself.  While serving with the Russian army during World War I, Zass was injured and taken prisoner by Austrian forces.  Alexander escaped three times and left the country on his third attempt where he'd go on to become a prominent strongman, wrestler and circus performer known as Iron Samson to conceal his identity.
