Description

‘There they stood, bumbling into lines with a bit of difficulty: Mother Finland’s chosen sacrifice to world history’Unknown Soldiers follows the fates of a ramshackle troupe of machine-gunners in the Second World War, as they argue, joke, swear, cadge a loaf of bread or a cigarette, combat both boredom and horror in the swamps and pine forests – and discover that war will make or break them. One of Finland’s best-loved books, this gritty and unromantic depiction of battle honours the dogged determination of a country and the bonds of brotherhood forged between men at war, as they fight for their lives.’A rediscovered classic… profound and enriching … Unknown Soldiers still has the power to shock’ Herald
