From Heroes to Enemies - Finns in Canada, 1937-1947, is a social history of Finnish Canadians depicting the turbulent war years. Based on over ten years of meticulous archival research, supported by extensive RCMP documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, diaries, letter collections, and interviews, the book reveals a web of conflicts, and previously unknown, suppressed phenomena. During the Winter War of 1939-1940 the Finns were elevated to heroes, David against Goliath. In late 1941 the Finns suddenly became enemy aliens as Canada declared war on Finland. The book describes the expereinces of Finnish Canadians during these years.
