About the Author:

Väinö Linna (1920-1992) Finland's perhaps most famous author.

Review:

"...flawless prose with vivid images and wonderfully colloquial voices, which smack of the original Finnish in a most subtle ... way." -- Tom Moates, Scandinavian Review, Winter 2002

"The language ... meanders with a mix of eloquent descriptive and narrative passages ... sometimes it breaks up into pure phonetic sound." --Susan Vickberg, Journal of Finnish Studies, December 2001
