Second in the Under the North Star trilogy.
This powerful novel depicts the Civil War of Finland of 1918, which erupted only a month and a half after Finland’s Declaration of Independence.
Akseli, the fiery eldest of the Koskela sons, has grown up to become a leader among his peers. Fueled by passions on both sides, the class conflict, especially the land issue, erupts into war between Finns, between the haves and have-nots, between neighbors.
With deep insight and a strong commitment to truth, author Vaino Linna describes how the victors handled the aftermath of the three-month war, the pseudo-trials, the executions, and the prison camps.
