I love this cover.  It's great.I’m delighted to share with you this feature from the Oslo Times:

“This is a must read for all historical fiction lovers. The talented Christoph Fischer takes us on a journey spanning almost thirty years of history encased around the various Finnish conflicts: Civil War, Winter War, Continuation War and the Lapland War. The novel reveals the political and personal self discovery of characters as the reader is sent back into an atmosphere and the mood of the time.

In 1918 young Zacharias Nielsen boards a ship in Copenhagen to join the Red Guards in the Finnish Civil War. Encouraged by an idolised teacher with communist leanings, he follows the call for help from his Nordic Comrades, despite his privileged background.

His best friend, Ansgar, has opposing political ideals to Zacharias but, for his own personal reasons, finds himself soon stuck in the Scandinavian North with Zacharias and Raisa, a Finnish nurse who helps them in their new life. Through the years that follow the brotherly war the trio see the political landscape in Finland and Europe change as Communists and Fascists try to make their mark and attempt to change the World order.

In Search of A Revolution was shortlisted by Readfree in the Literary Fiction category as one of the 50 self-published books worth reading, and it was one of the 7 finalists in the category.
